first recipe of the week: lil' promise pies

the recipe i found on pinterest called for kisses...but i decided to use dove promises a) because they were on sale b) because they are so much more delightful and c) because i knew i would have leftovers since i was just doing a trial run tonight rather than a major project (i.e. there would be leftover chocolate to savor)
here is the original recipe for your reference and for oh-so-better pictures. remember that wish list? i really want a good camera. i mean...i could have used a point and shoot or my iPod rather than my phone, but the fact remains that i want a higher quality camera.

1 refrigerated pie crust, thawed
10-15 individual chocolates
1 egg white + 1 tbsp water (whisk together)
2ish tbsp granulated suger
powder sugar to dust (optional)

1. preheat oven to 350
2. lay out pie crust on your working surface
3. place the chocolates out on crust
4. cut a circle of pie crust around the chocolate
 5. wrap the pie crust around the chocolate (make sure to pinch seams together well so it doesn't come undone while baking)
6. once you run out of space on the crust, ball it up and roll it back out just like when making cookies with cookie cutters
6. i placed the lil' pies on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. i put it on parchment paper simply to make it a cleaner process
7. brush the lil' pies with the egg white concoction
8. sprinkle them with the granulated sugar
9. bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown
10. let cool for 5 minutes, sprinkle with the powdered sugar if you so desire

these little guys are oh so delightful. they are so simple and yet so good. i mean, what's not to love? pie crust and chocolate. duh. it's a winner. and so easy to make.
