Okay, so you’ll see from the calendar that I totally missed May 2nd during Dancing Deer CEO Trish Karter’s ride to raise awareness of family homelessness. I feel really bad since Ms. Karter can ride 1,500 in two weeks and I can’t blog every day she’s gone. Yep, I’m awesome.
So, the first order of business is to write what would have been the post for that day. Then on Monday I’ll do a make up post as way of, hopefully, making things up to the truly awesome folks at Dancing Deer. Anyway, today I’ll be making
Brownie Stuffed and White Chocolate Stuffed Pie Crusts
Like so many of the dishes we’ve been discussing and devouring over Ms. Karter’s ride, this one turns out to be pretty simple. Dancing Deer does all the hard work turning raw ingredients into delicious brownies, cakes, and cookies. All we need to do add a few more ingredients and we have an entirely new dessert experience.
Stuffing Some Pie Crust
This one is all in the roll. You just take a prepackaged pie crust, cut it into triangles, line one edge with white chocolate chips or coins, add some tasty Dancing Deer baked goods, roll and bake. You should probably let them cool, but that means you have more self control than I do.
You will need:
- 1 store bought rolled pie crust (square if possible)
- 6 tablespoons white chocolate chips or coins
- 4 Dancing Deer brownies or 8 cookies, crumbled
- (optional) 1 egg
Preheat your oven to the temperature suggested on the pie crust’s instructions.
Thaw the pie crust and cut into 12 pieces. The pieces should be roughly 2 inches at their widest and about 3 inches long.
Along the 2 inch-wide edge (what would be the “bottom” of the triangle), put 1/2 tablespoon of white chocolate chips and 1/3 of brownie that has been crumbled. Repeat for the other 11 triangles and put them on a greased cookie sheet.
Optionally beat the egg with 1 tablespoon of water to form an egg wash and brush liberally on the pie crust rolls.
Bake per the crust’s instructions and enjoy!
And Now For Some Indigestion
According to the National Center on Family Homelessness, homeless children get ill four times as often as childen who are not homeless.
