Friday's Kid-Tested Recipe: Easy Fruit Pies

I hate sneaking food into my children's diets, so I thought I would share some of the recipes that I make with my kids (ages 4 &2)! When kids help cook, they rarely avoid the food because they helped to make it! I'll try to note steps that even the youngest children can help with in the kitchen!  These Easy Fruit Pies are not only yummy but they are super easy to make too! (Maybe not the healthiest...but sometimes special treats are in order!)

What you'll need to make it!
Canned Biscuits
Sweet fillings - pie fillings work great for this (our favorites include apple and cherry - low sugar)

How to make it!
Flatten each biscuit out with a rolling pin (if they stick, use a little cooking oil spray or olive oil on your pin before rolling)
Once biscuits are rolled, spoon on pie filling and fold biscuit over top of filling squishing down the sides until sealed.  Cook at 375 for 15-20 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown (you're really cooking the biscuit and warming the insides)

How to serve it!
Serve your Fruit Pies with ice cream for a truly special treat!
Kids starting at around age 2, with supervision, can help with filling their fruit pies (you'll be amazed at their creativity with helping - they might even come up with some creative fillings...bananas and chocolate come to mind)!

Have a great recipe or a food/cooking blog? Feel free to link up now or send me an e-mail! I am going to start featuring recipes of others every Friday...I just haven't gotten my act together yet! I'd love it if you'd grab the button, but it's not a requirement to join in!

Leave a comment this week - having trouble getting this post to go up, and can't get my linky to go in :)

I use a flour tortilla shell and place a tablespoon of apple pie filling in the center, roll up, and microwave for 30 seconds.

Oh, and try some spray butter on top and sprinkle on a little bit of sugar. He also loves these too.
