Yesterday, my kids and I made the most delicious dessert. We called it Boo!Berry Ghost Mini-Pies. To make this dessert we adapted a recipe that we found on La Bella Cook.
Please Pin this to Pinterest and follow the THREE GHOST FRIENDS board.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt + 1 pinch
1/2 cup sugar + 2 Tbs.
2 sticks of butter or 16 Tbs.
6 Tbs. ice water
1 1/2 Tbs. corn starch
2 cups of black raspberries (We used frozen ones but fresh would work too.)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg beaten with 1 tsp. water
|Add 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp. salt, and 2 Tbs. sugar to your mixing bowl. Then, mix until blended.|
|It should look like this. Then, add 6 Tbs. of ice water and beat on low for about 20-30 seconds.|
|The dough should look like this. Scrap the dough off the mixing paddle into the bowl.|
|Divide the dough in half on top of two pieces of plastic wrap and flatten. Then, wrap the dough completely and store in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.|
|The recipe makes about eight mini-pies. But, you will need a bottom ghost piece and a top ghost piece with eyes cut out. So, that is sixteen ghost cutouts.|
|My little helper in the background working hard with his dough.|
|I used a spoon to carve out the eyes on eight of the ghosts. Then, I formed the eye holes with my finger.|
|Looking pretty spooky!|
|I really don't think this is completely necessary, but I used a plastic container to give the bottom piece of the dough an indentation to place the berry filling.|
|Then, I placed a dough piece with eyes on top.|
|Carefully pinched the edges.|
|I used a fork to crimp the edges.|
I forgot to take more pictures after this step. But, once I made all the ghost mini-pies I placed them in the freezer for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, I removed them from the freezer and brushed them with the beaten egg and 1 Tbs. water.
I baked them in a 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.
|I thought they turned out great!|
|The kids loved them too!|
|"Ooooooooooo! This is a yummy bedtime snack!"|
This would be great paired with Ghost Vanilla Ice Cream!
