We went to the farm over the weekend and my nephew went a little crazy on the pears..So! I'm thinkin pie :)
Well theres also a box of quick-mix puddin and I do have a great pie crust recipe.
What about tarts...
CAKE PIE TARTS
2 cwhite or yellow cake mix
4 largepears or apples of your choice (sliced & diced!)
1 Tbspbutter (to melt)
1/2 cbrown sugar
1 tsplemon juice
1splash of cold water
1 pkginstant vanillia pudding (i wager any flavor will do!)
2 cmilk (or whatever the box reads ;)
a fewsighs/dashes cinnamon
How to Make Pear-fect!
- For the Cake-Pie-Tarts:
In a medium mixing bowl combine white/yellow cake mix & salt. When you've finished stirring add the milk.
- Now lightly grease your muffin tins & sacrifice a little extra cake mix to the counter-top/work surface. Roll out your dough. You may use cookie cutters to make circles or mini-crusts. I grab the dough by the handful and press it into the lightly greased muffin tins.
- Place muffin tins in pre-heated oven and let bake for about 7 minutes and check them.
The cake mix will cause the tarts to rise. Take a spoon and lightly touch the center. They will cave to form the tart.
- Pears (or apples):
Combine pears (sliced & diced) with butter,lemon juice and water in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the brown sugar and cover with lid. let sit for 5 minutes.
Combine instant pudding & milk in a medium bowl and set in a cool space.
