Baking the Alphabet {via Octavia and Vicky}

The weather is turning cooler and I’m loving it. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the cold weather, the colder the better! I think perhaps I should have been born in a much cooler climate, Australia is too hot for me!

Cold weather means more comfort foods like casseroles, soups, dumplings, mash and PIES. I was inspired (yet again) by Beth’s yummy recipes and we made her chicken pot pies. They were DELISH and I’ll definitely be making those again.

Pebble was keen to help and loved placing the pastry on top of the pies and brushing them with milk. Each pie was lovingly topped with a pastry in the shape of our family member’s first initial, and Pebble thought that was the best bit ever. We had some pastry left over and made more letters, with me cutting out the shapes and Pebble painting them with milk.

I asked Pebble which letters she wanted to make as we went along and she delighted is seeing the shapes emerge from the pastry. She sprinkled a few with cheese to make them extra tasty. Then it was time to pop them in the oven and start baking the alphabet.

Where was Rocky while this was going on? He was kept busy with the age old toddler distractor – the plastics cupboard! It never fails :)

  1. cool idea – my girls love love love pies! and this added touch would be very welcomed (mental note to remember next time i’m making pies)!

    It will also help me because usually i have to remove vegetables (or fill one pie before adding the vegies for a certain little lady who won’t eat them). and I always forget which pie was hers – but this is a great solution!!!

    • We made these again this week, so yummy. This time I did it de-constructed because Pebble is not much of a fan of the pie filling. I just give her chicken and veggies with a pie top (pastry cut into a circle and baked), and do the pie filling for the rest of us. I found lactose free cream so it’s all good for Rocky to eat too :)
