Several weeks ago, my friend, Jen, and I hosted a Valentine crafting party for a few of our girlfriends. We served tasty treats and sparkly drinks and everyone made Valentine cards for their special someones. It was a great girls' night in!
And, because we love a good party favor, Jen whipped up some pie-crust wrapped hershey kisses, which we tucked into pretty bags and gave to our party guests. So fun! Jen got the recipe from Picky Palate and it's definitely my kind of recipe. Quick, easy and cute!
On Saturday night, when trying to decide what to take to the following day's Superbowl party, I came across a box of pie crusts in the freezer. I paired that with the extra kisses hanging around from our girls' party and ended up with another 2 dozen of these tasty treats.
My technique is slightly different than the one on Picky Palate because I'm terrible at following directions and therefor only just-this-second referenced the original recipe. But, I don't think you can mess these up.
Kiss My Pie
Two refrigerated pie crusts
24 hershey kisses
1 T melted butter
1-2 spoonfuls of white sugar
powdered sugar for dusting
I started by unrolling each pie crust, cutting off the rounded edges and then cutting the remaining piece into 12 equal(ish) squares. And, then I discarded the rounded edges, because I'm sorta lazy.
On each square, I placed an unwrapped kiss.
(did you need me to tell you the kiss should be unwrapped?)
I made the pies by gathering the corners to the center and giving a little pinch. Some looked better than others. Clearly.
I melted a tablespoon(ish) of butter in a glass dish and brushed a bit on each pie. I followed this up with a sprinkle of white sugar.
Then I baked the pies on a parchment-lined cookie sheet in a 450 degree oven for bout 12 minutes. When I pulled them out, the tops were a nice golden brown.
After a little dusting of powdered sugar, these babies were done! I asked my hubby to name them and he came up with Kiss My Pie.
Clever, that one.
