we rise early here at our place on 34th street!
and it wasn't any different on my day off last Friday,
as i prepped for Saturday's picnic.
by 6:00 am i was showered and
good to go! i drove to West Seattle to visit
good morning Macaron!
i made a quick stop at my mom's house to
drop off the pink & white Divine Twine and
cello bags for the special sweet mix that
she had made! ( you will see the bags of sweetness
in tomorrow's post).
then...back home to bake...bake...and bake.
first on the list: three bite baby pies
you start with your favorite recipe for pie crust,
(the store bought pie crust works well too!)
i used my fave old biscuit cutter, a pastry brush
our fam's favorite filling(s), and a mix of two parts egg
and one part water as an egg wash!
i egg washed the edges of the bottom pieces,
then added a dot of filling.
before placing the top
piece on...i stamped "baby" and a tiny heart
with rubber stamp letters
that i keep with my cookie cutter stash!
~ yum ~
oops...i almost forgot to tell you...i use
they take exactly twenty minutes at 350 degrees.
aren't they the cutest?
you can see "baby" and the little vents that
i poked with a skewer...
next: Mama Biscotti...
just a couple pics...i will post a tutorial
in the future!
brownies bites with pink fluffy frosting...
packed and ready for delivery!
we went over to Chrislyn and Jason's house
to deliver extra chairs. Chrislyn is a great cook,
she made us killer calzones and salad. we dined, talked
about the final details for the picnic and of course,
THE ROYAL WEDDING!
see you all tomorrow for part two!
