And the winner is…

BINGO! Jessica Jones over at How About Orange created Bingo cards specially for the 2011 Oscars. I think my favorite space is “Winner attempts to exit stage in wrong direction.” Ha! How many times have you seen THAT happen at the Oscars! What a creative way to keep everyone on their toes during the entire show! Print these out along with your Twig & Thistle printables and you’re set!

Sweetie Pies

Twig & Thistle has done it again! They were sweet enough to offer the PDF to make those Valentine’s bags I showed you the other day. Now they are offering a free printable AND the recipe for these precious pies! These would be great Valentine’s, teacher gifts or party favors!

Apple Hand Pie Cooking Directions according to Twig & Thistle:

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat (a nonstick baking mat).

2. On a lightly floured work surface, roll dough to about 1/8 inch thick. Using a 5-inch cookie cutter, cut out rounds. Transfer rounds to prepared baking sheet.

3. Place about 2 tablespoons of apple pie filling onto one-half of each round. Fold dough over to close. Brush the tops of each pie with egg whites. Using a fork, press edges together to seal shut. Sprinkle tops of pies with sanding sugar.

4. Bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer pies to a wire rack to cool. Let cool completely before placing in boxes. These can be stored in an airtight container up to 4 days.
