Trish and I are excited to introduce you all to another set of “sister-in-law” bloggers! These gals have some incredible creativity and we are happy to have them stopping by our blog today to share an incredible recipes for Fruit Salsa and Pie Crust Cookies.
Hi Everyone! We’re happy to be here today, sharing our blog with all of you. We’re Emily and Jaime from Everyday Art.
It’s so fun to have a sister-in-law that you want to find excuses to talk to each other–it’s great! We started a blog a little over a year ago because we used to live next to each other (literally a few doors down) and now that we are states away from one another we needed a way to bounce ideas of one another, show each other our projects, share recipes, etc.
We love creating lives that we want to live in and invite you to follow along and see if you don’t find some new recipes or projects you’d like to try.
Now, without further ado, here is a quick and easy and super delicious recipe Jaime whipped up one day for…
Fruit Salsa and Pie Crust Cookies
I’d like to say that I knew what I was doing for this, but in reality, I had 1 hour until I needed to be at a pot-luck summer BBQ with zero ideas in my head of what to do….
Sooo, I invented a Fruit Salsa. It turned out really tasty, but honestly the best part was that it tasted good even though I just threw in whatever fruit I had in the kitchen. I think if I planned to make it, I’d probably stress a lot over what to put in it. As is, it was what I had and it was great.
The best part was the yummy pie-crust cookies I made to eat it with. YUM-O!
Here’s what I did:
3 small mangoes
some honeydew melon
a few strawberries
Add a dash of cinnamon and yer done.
Make (or buy) some pie crust.
Roll it out, cut it into strips.
Put on a baking sheet.
Sprinkle with lots of sugar and cinnamon.
Bake until golden.
It really turned out yummy. I could go for some more right now…. And seriously, with that rather odd assortment of fruit, I think you could put whatever you wanted in it and it would turn out really good. I think the base recipe would be to use 2 chopped apples and then about the same amount or double of a particularly soft and sweet fruit like the mangoes or some berries. I’m getting hungry just thinking of it.
