Kiss Pies

Standard

Ingredients:

For Pie Dough:

  • All-Purpose Flour – 1 cup
  • Unsalted Butter – 8 Tbsp (cold)
  • Salt – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Sugar – 1 teaspoon
  • Ice Water – 6 to 8 Tbsp

For Kiss Pie:

  • Hershey Kisses or any other chocolate of you choice
  • Egg White – 1
  • Water – 1 tbsp
  • Powdered Sugar – for dusting

Method:

For Pie Dough:

  • Mix the dry ingredients together on a marble surface. (Marble is best because it keeps the ingredients cold, and cold ingredients are the key to producing a tender, flaky pie crust.)
  • Dice the butter into small pieces and cut it into the dry mixture with a fork to ensure that you make a flaky pie crust. Its important to cut in the butter quickly so that it does not melt.
  • Gather the pie crust mixture into the center of your preparation surface and create a well in the center of the mixture.
  • Gradually add the ice cold water approximately 1 tablespoon at a time, to the center of the mixture. Knead to form dough.

For Kiss Pie:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Roll out pie dough onto a lightly floured counter top.  Place chocolate around the edges of pie dough, about 2 1/2 inches apart. and cut in circles.
  • Fold half of pie dough around top of dough and pinch edge around top. Now, fold up both sides of remaining dough up to the tip of the chocolate pinching edge.  Now press together edges and form criss cross.
  • Brush all little pies with an egg white wash then sprinkle with granulated sugar.  Bake for 20-28 minutes or until little pies are golden.
  • Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.  Dust each with powdered sugar and serve.
