Cupcake Print Aprons & Strawberry Rhubarb Pies

Last week I decided it was time to make a pie and figure out the easiest way possible.  I searched online for the best possible recipes for easy to make crusts as well as fillings for a fruit pie and decided that I would take a tricky strawberry and rhubarb pie and make it as simple as possible.  I’m also excited that my cupcake print apron from Flirty Aprons also got here so I included it in the picture.   It’s the same cupcake apron from this post, and when my cupcake print apron finally came in the mail I was excited enough that I had to bake.  I have an amazing apple pie ready for you next week.  Anyways, I’ve already told you how much I love cupcake print aprons for baking and for showing off and unfortunately the picture with it laying flat doesn’t show how fabulous it actually is.  Flirty aprons also sent me a fabulous matching oven mit for the cupcake print apron they sent me.  Anyways, click the image or link below and you’ll be able to buy this same fabulous cupcake print apron and oven mit and please remeber to use Coupons apronsshop20 to save when you buy cupcake print aprons.

What I loved about baking in my new cupcake print apron is that it completely helped me to add love into my food.  When I was looking at the fun cupcake print on this apron I could help but smile.  I love how colorful it is, I love the trim and the red neck straps and yellow waist straps that tie into perfect bows.  Because you can tie the neck and waist straps to whatever length you would like, you can tie it to adjust the apron to fit your perfectly.  I also loved that the yellow waist straps on this cupcake print apron match the pockets on the front of the apron perfectly.  When my friends came over they smelled the pie instantly and more importantly I was still wearing the gift from Flirty Aprons and they all wanted to know where they can buy cupcake print aprons for themselves.  The pie and the fabulous cupcake print apron were both hits and I love my new favorite cupcake print apron to wear when I’m baking.  I’m actually wearing it right now while making the apple pie for next week.  Anyways, here is the easy to make and easy to do strawberry and rhubarb pie.

The first thing I did was find the easiest possible pie crust recipe on earth which turned out to be this one.  All it is is

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Then you just take your dry ingredients and throw them into a huge bowl, then mix in your wet ingredients and the easy to make pie crust is done in less than a minute.  You just have to mix it together so that it turns into dough.  Then roll it out and fit it to your pie pan.  I also did another one (which didn’t look as good because I messed up placing it on top of the pie before measuring it which you can see in the picture) and then you bake your pie in the oven on 400 for about 15 to 20 minutes.  If you brush a beaten egg on the top I think it would brown even more.  For the top crust, you could always add a bit of extra sugar or just place it on top of the pie to make the top crust a bit more sweet.

The filling.

For the pie filling I just mused everything up and left some strawberry chunks in for texture and then mixed in my favorite preserves and then got it to taste how I wanted, then threw it into the pie crust.  After that I placed the top crust on and put it in the oven.

The strawberry rhubarb pie was a huge hit.  It was sweet, tart and the crust was perfect for it.  I loved the recipe and everyone loved my cupcake print apron and I told them all to come here, click on my link to buy cupcake print aprons and also to use the coupon code apronsshop20 to save until 9/30 on cupcake print aprons at one of my favorite apron shops.

Cupcake aprons are some of the best selling womens aprons around.  With shows like cupcake wars on the Food Network and cupcake shops opening up all over the country, everyone wants to have the perfect fun and flirty apron to match their new favorite dessert.  Cupcakes are perfect because they are small enough that you don’t eat an entire cake and they are able to satisfy your craving without letting you go overboard.  There are hundreds of flavors and decorations and icings you can use as well as sizes so you can get your fix all day long.  In some cities you even have cupcake trucks like curbside cupcakes here in Washington DC which help you to get your cupcake cravings under control.  That is one of the reasons I love these cupcake aprons for women.

Sesame Street Fruit Desserts for Kids

One of the hardest things to do is to get your kids to eat healthy…especially when it comes to fruit for dessert instead of cake.  That’s why I like to mix the two together to make a dessert that is fun to look at and for your kids to eat.  Here is an example of a single serving cookie monster dessert for your kids.  I’ll also give you tricks on how to make Oscar, Elmo, Big Bird (with vegetables), The Count, The Orange one and a couple more.

You’ll need:

  • 1 sugar cookie or chocolate chip cookie
  • Whipped cream
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Strawberries

First you bake your cookies or take a pre-made cookie and lay it in the bottom of the serving dish.  Then you can do a layer of cake above it or you can add in a layer of buttercream icing or even just some whipped cream.  If you want it to be healthier, then pour in more blueberries.

Once your serving dish is filled to the top with blueberries, take your whipped cream and make two large ovals towards the top.  Now cut the tops off of two blackberries and place them towards each other on the bottom of the eyes.

Now take a few blackberries and start arranging them into an oval that covers the bottom part of the serving dish.  You may need to take out some blueberries to get them to stay.  The middle picture is laying on top and the bottom is with them arranged in the blueberries.

The last step is to take your strawberry and cut off the top.  Now slice it in half and place the rounded part up for the tongue.

Then all you need to do is serve it to your kids.  They will absolutely love these desserts and you’ll love that they are eating fruit instead of just sugar and other desserts.  You can also get creative and use strawberries or cherries for Elmo (pit the cherries though), light purple grapes for the Count, green grapes for Oscar or you can use sliced Kiwi’s which looks better, Corn and carrots (slice the carrots into long strips) for big bird, use orange slices for the orange character and you can pretty much make any of the sesame street characters easily by finding fruits that are around the same colors as them.
