Apple Pielettes

Posted on

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is for Apple Pielettes. These are tiny pies that are baked in muffin tins that have a nice buttery crust and great flavor inside and out. This is a pretty basic recipe; the part that took a little time was chilling the dough in different stages of the pie-making process.

Tiger Cakes

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie assignment was Tiger Cakes, or petits gâteaux tigre.
