Pie Press/Empanada Makers

Tupperware pie press- helped me make cherry pie
today for my family !!

Roll out pre-made dough and make it flat and made circles

The bottom of the pie press is the prefect circle for the size
you will need.
Flip press over and place dough down and use about 1 1/2 tbls
of pie mix. dont over stuff !!
Press together and scrap off the extra dough that will come
out the the edges.
Prefect !! lighty put milk on the tops to golden, add a little
bit of white sugar.
Bake for 20 mins @ 350' and they come out Beautiful.

BUT be careful that you dont make your circles to thin and you
dont over stuff or this will happen !!

Pro Chef Soup

I'm making right now creamy potato and carrot soup, and i made it with the help from my Pro Chef from Tupperware !!

Take your pro chef and only use the blade.
Then take one onion and remove the peel and cut in half, through in the pro chef and spin just a bit, and put the nicely chopped pieces in a big pot.
Then you will need 3 potatoes but only using on at a time, take one and cut into 3 pieces and put into pro chef and spin, through into pot, and repeat with the other potato.
then you will need 4 large carrots, take two at a time, peeled and cut in 3 pieces and put in pro chef,
spin, then put in pot, repeat with the rest of carrots.
Make sure there well chopped. For me, the smaller the better, because i have little children that dont like big pieces. add 2 cups water with 2 packs of chicken ox and mix and add to veggies, then add 3-4 cups of milk, just to cover the veggies. cook over medium untill veggies are tender, then add pepper and salt to teats. and parsley !!
when veggies are done, mix 1/4 cup flour with 1/4 butter till smooth.
then add into the soup and mix until thicked. but you dont need to add all of the mixture.
Enjoy !!
