For Christmas, my daughter gave me four small Pyrex dishes.
They could be used for individual casseroles or . . . as miniature pie plates!
They're only 6" across.
This afternoon when I started to make a Dutch Apple Pie, I thought of the dishes and decided to make four little pies instead of one regular sized one.
I cut a ball of dough for one pie crust into four equal pieces and rolled each piece out. They fit perfectly in the Pyrex plates. Then I prepared the same amount of apples I would for a regular pie but divided them up into the four little pie plates.
Made the crumb topping and into the oven they went.
When Papa Pea came into the kitchen a few minutes ago and saw them cooling on the counter, he said, "Perfect. One for you, one for our daughter, and two for me."
Ha, in his dreams!
