Mini Peach Pies - Perfect for Back to School

#Cbias,#SmartSnack,Back to School
 If you did not know, we are quickly closing in on the BIG day!

What big day is that?

The first day of school!

We start next week and I have been trying to think of the perfect "gift" for Mads teacher, as well as the perfect treat for her to enjoy after school.

Yesterday we went to Walmart to pick up a few last minute school supplies, because in the last 50 trips I have made to get her supplies I have managed to forget a few things.  Off we went to get everything I forgot and pick up a few snack options.
We came across these Del Monte Fruit Cups and I had to grab a few.  I knew they would make the PERFECT after school #SmartSnack for Mads, a great side to a healthy lunch for MG, and I also had a special treat in mind for Mads and her teacher.
After searching the section over I decided to get Peaches, Pears and Peaches that had been flavored with brown sugar and cinnamon. Once I saw the Diced Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to make.....

Mini Peach Pies!

I knew the Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Peaches would be PERFECT for this!  They already had the flavor I was looking for and I would not need to add any other spices or sugar to them.
You will need, a Fruit Cup, Pie Crust, Butter and a bit of Flour.
Lay your crust out and cut to desired shape/size. You will then add one small pat of butter to center of bottom crust.

Place a small spoonful of filling in middle of crust.

 Next you just seal up the sides, and add a stick, if you would like, and bake! Super easy!

Mini Peach Pies
*1 Fruit Cup makes 4 small pies
1 Del Monte Brown Sugar and Cinnamon Peaches Fruit Cup {drained}
1 Package Refrigerated Pie Crust {you can also make your own, of course, but I was in a rush}
1/2 Tsp Flour
1-2 Tsp Butter
Egg Wash

Preheat oven to 375
Drain fruit cup and add flour to fruit, mix well.  Set aside.
Using a Mini Pie Maker or Cookie Cutter, cut pie crust to desired shape/size.
Lay bottom piece on cookie sheet and place a small pat of butter in the middle of the crust.
Next, add a small spoon full of Peaches and add another small pat of butter on top of the peaches.
Using your egg wash, gently brush wash on edge of bottom crust.
Place top crust over mixture and gently press down, I like to use a fork to do this.
Place on greased (or parchment covered) cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool on sheet for 5 minutes, move to cooling rack to cool completely.
*If you would like to make your mini pies into Pie Pops, just place your pop stick between layers and press to seal, continue with directions.

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
