Snack Time

 Fidget is always hungry lately, a good sign of a growing girl. Here is a picture of her snack early this week. She adores tiny tomatoes and peanuts. 

The other night when making pastry for chicken potpies, I got the idea to cut the crackers out with Pooh cookie cutters. The recipe calls for refrigerated pie crust, which I do use on occasion, but I am a baker who loves to make anything involving dough. 

Making our own crust is more delicious, but how much better it was with lovable character crackers! It made snack time fun the next day too, when she got a leftover Pooh cracker. I think we're on to something. Our potpies will never be the same.


  1. We would always make little cinnimon rolls out of the leftover pie crusts... a flakey, sweet little treat that I still do for my big kids when I can. Homemade pie crust is the!! I'll have to remember to get the cookie cutters out for the littlest Treasure in the future!!

  2. That's a great idea. When I grew up, we used to make tiny tarts with just a little berry preserves, folding the dough over it, crimping sides with a fork. But Fidget doesn't like jellies yet so the cinnamon rolls will be fun for her. Thanks for sharing that with us, we may do it after school as I have some leftover dough in the fridge to use.
