Thanksgiving Teacher Gift: Hand Pies
This year at the Little Men's school I am in charge of teacher appreciation. If you follow me on Instagram (and I totally think that you should...hehehe...@larissa_anotherday), then you have already seen a sneak peak of these little thankful pies.
I made simple hand pies with premade pie crusts and canned pie filling. So easy. I cut circles out using the top of a glass. Filled each pastry with one tablespoon of pie filling. Then I topped each pie with another circle of pie crust and sealed it with the tongs of a fork. Bake. Cool.
Then I packaged them all up.
I used really simple supplies, all which I bought from The Mart.
I flattened a cupcake liner and used it to lay the pie on. Then I put the pie into a paper CD envelope.
I used a paper doily and a small flattened truffle paper liner for the tags.
I hand wrote a little message in a gold Sharpie...my new favorite thing.
I used a plain clothespin to attach the tag. Then I just repeated a bunch of times...enough for all our teachers.
I am grateful for good teachers. I kind of geek out over thinking of ways to thank our teachers. I had a lot of fun with these little Thanksgiving pies.
