What sort of wonderful desserts did you make this Memorial Day weekend?
I had all sorts of plans swirling around my head-none of which included painting, or cleaning up weeds! Oh well, life takes turns and sometimes they lead to better places.
I wanted to make one of these;
or maybe one of these-wouldn’t this just knock the socks off your family and friends?…..until they realized their lips will turn blue from the blue cake and frosting! I hate that!!
or how about this?! How fabulous would this be at the end of a bbq?
I didnt even make these Martha Stewart creations;
Aren’t these cookies gorgeous? Who has the time?
Besides it was 90+ degrees this past weekend and I wasn’t about to turn on the oven!
So instead I just made this:
Sorry about the cruddy photo, I took it with my cellphone quickly- before we ate them! And the pan was hot and I burned my finger.
All I did was take a pre-made pie crust, cut it into rounds (I used a paper muffin liner as a template) and placed them in the muffin cups.
One pie crust made 6. I then placed the muffin cup pan directly on my gas grill-it was approximately 400 degrees.-they took about 10 minutes to brown.
I made berry/rhubarb filling on the stove and kept it warm. You could very easily go completely lazy and use a can of pie filling! I scooped a little filling in each crust cup.
No oven required. Done. Easy. Lazy woman’s quick dessert. I didn’t have time to decorate cookies, make a two toned layer cake or line berries and pipe frosting….I was too busy enjoying the weekend! Hope you were too!
