Recipes for Pie and Tarts

I knew you would be intrigued by the pie yesterday!

Russ’s recipe for pastry with cheddar cheese is always a hit. He has the magic touch for flaky pastry. He uses this pastry for apple pie, savory tarts (tiny quiche appetizers), and mincemeat tarts.


200 scraps of fabric, 3.75 x 12.25 (after washing)

Apple Pie Filling or similar

You can print 4 pie shapes and 4 tart shapes with one of the two Inklingo Pie & Tarts Combo Layouts while your pie is in the oven.

We have pies and tarts on today’s menu!

The Inklingo Pies & Tarts Shape Collection, published in cooperation with Sue Daley of Busy Fingers Patchwork, is my kind of baking!

What’s for dinner, Russ?
