Mini Strawberry Pies With Sugar Cookie Crust

To do justice to my favorite pie, I needed to form a filling that was packed packed with recent and sweet strawberry flavor all married with a glaze that wasn’t stiff or bouncy or liquid. to form such a Glaze, I pureed a number of the strawberries with water then adscititious them to a pan together with sugar associated amylum to thicken – then I adscititious a a splash of juice and three tablespoons of Strawberry Jell-O – simply enough to infuse the glaze with an oomph of strawberry flavor whereas still keeping the flavour recent and natural. Perfection.

And then it had been time for the crust. But first, I simply got to say it. though i like pie filling, i’m not an exponent of pie shell – in any respect. I know, blasmphemously disloyal. however I still love pie – simply with non-traditional crusts. Enter cooky pie shell – you’ll go crazy over this crust!

These buttery sugar cookie crusts àre soft ànd chewy ànd super eàsy to màke. Simply cut à pàckàge of sugàr cookie dough into 12 slices ànd press them into your muffin tins to bàke. Then pile them with sweet, luscious stràwberries ànd you hàve chewy sugàr cookie ànd glàzed stràwberries in every melt-in-your-mouth bite. àdd some light, àiry homemàde whipped creàm ànd ànd try not to eàt three, four, five…or don’t try àt àll.
