Lucky for me there are several women in my life that fit that definition plus do so much more. I've been so blessed to be surrounded by women who inspire me and teach me and show me what a real Mother is. Someone who kisses boo boos and holds hands walking into the first day of elementary and cheers the loudest at basketball games and gets there first to choir concerts to score the best seats and works numerous jobs but still makes it to every t ball game and loves their kids no matter what. I mean no matter what! I am just so lucky.
So to celebrate all the amazing moms out there, I'm sharing a quick and easy breakfast even the most cooking-challenged dad/son/daughter/boyfriend/significant other can make to serve that deserving mom breakfast in bed. I call it an Open-Faced Fruit Pie!
All you do is lay out a pie crust:
Add some fruit:
Sprinkle on some sweet stuff and wrap a pie crust around it (use a premade crust to make it that much easier :):
Bake and you're done!
1 refrigerated pie crust
1 1/2 Cup fresh fruit, rinsed
4 Tbsp cold butter
1/4 Cup flour
1/4 Cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg white
1 Tbsp water
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lay out your pie crust on a floured surface, then transfer it to a baking stone.
Place the fruit in the middle of the pie crust, leaving about 1 1/2 inches on the sides.
Cut up the butter using a pastry cutter (or a knife if you don't have one). I use the one my mom-in-law bought me :)
Combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a small bowl. Mix in the cut up butter and sprinkle it over the fruit. Pour the vanilla over that.
Fold up the sides of the pie crust over the fruit and pinch the sides together to keep the fruit from spilling out.
Combine the egg white and water and brush over the pie crust.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let it cool another five minutes on the stone before serving. Cut it up, and bring it to the beautiful deserving mom for breakfast in bed!! Enjoy!
So what are you doing for your Mom this weekend? Is she a breakfast in bed kind of lady or a brunch and mimosa's gal? Either way, I hope all the mom's out there have an amazing weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
