Potato Pie Pockets

Pie has always been on my Must try List. Once tried making apple pie and it was a Flop. Got this Potato Pie recipe from Menu Rani Chellam’s Tiffen Ready Cookbook. Made some simple changes to the Filling and instead of making it as Single Big Pie made it as pie pockets in Muffin tin. Easy to Share and Portion Control too!!!

200gms All Purpose Flour
2 tsp baking powder
100gms Cold Butter
1/2 cup Ice Cold Water

Method

Sieve together All Purpose flour and Baking powder , add salt and Cut the butter and work it thru the flour using a pastry blender or a fork. When the flour resemebles a coarse meal add required amount of water and make soft dough. Cling wrap and keep it in the refrigerator, let it sit for an hour.

Grease the Muffin Tin. Take out the Dough from the refrigerator and Roll out small discs to fit in your muffin tin, Put the 1 or 2 tbsp of filling in each and Cover it using thin strips of the dough. Preheat the Oven 180C and bake for 35-40 minutes. When the top turns golden brown, it is done.
