So....if I ever say I'm gonna make such-and-such little treats for such-and-such little occasion again--SLAP ME and remind me of this!
I found this recipe for Pumpkin Pie Bites on one of my FAVORITE baking websites: Bakerella. She touted the recipe as "easy" so I printed it out and decided THIS is what I was going to make for Brooklyn's class for Halloween. Since I was making them anyway, might as well make an extra batch for Sunday School on Sunday since it's our day to bring food.
What I learned in a nutshell: EASY does NOT equal QUICK. I honestly took a little nap right on my countertop in the kitchen waiting for the last (of FOUR) batches to bake!
Whew! It took me 3 hours to make about 45 of these little babies and although they ARE delicious and absolutely adorable and they were VERY easy.....they were NOT quick. The "hard" or time consuming part of this was forming all the little tiny pie crusts with my fingers.
About 2 hours in, I decided that since I was doing all this work, I was going to do TRIPLE duty with this little recipe and take a batch of them to the doctor's office I work for also...
At about 11:47 pm when I finally finished last night...I had to enjoy one. Mmmmm....yum!
And by the way...those of you who know me very well know that the title of this post is totally untrue. I will be baking again in no time....probably as soon as the pumpkin pie bites are all eaten. :o)
