Hello Kitty S’mores Pie Pockets

Hello Kitty S'mores Pie Pockets | Very Culinary

I would love to tell you that Haley requested a Hello Kitty birthday party with unbridled enthusiasm – that she came running to me one morning and begged me to decorate the house in pink, white, and black…and to plaster Hello Kitty paraphernalia everywhere…that a Hello Kitty cake would be awesome!

What she really wanted was a fairy-themed party.

But when I saw these Hello Kitty pocket pies, I had to make them. I HAD to. So I began the process of convincing her how badly she really wanted a Hello Kitty party. “You love Hello Kitty.” “You could wear your favorite Hello Kitty dress.” “But one of your friends is having a fairy party the week before yours. You don’t want the same thing, do you?” “You can have ice cream for breakfast.” “I’ll buy you a car.” Something like that…

I think I ended up using some mind-meld trick on her. I don’t remember, it’s all a blur now. But I broke her down. Hello Kitty party wins! Yes, I basically planned an entire birthday party around these pocket pies – and squashed the hopes and dreams of my 6 year old daughter.

She looks miserable, doesn’t she?

I hope she doesn’t remember the car thing when she’s 15.

Hello Kitty S’mores Pie Pockets
Makes 6
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

Ingredients
• 1 (14 ounce) refrigerated package of 2 (9-inch) rolled pie crusts
• 1 egg
• 6 tablespoons chocolate chips
• 1 cup mini marshmallows
• turbinado sugar

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with a silpat matte or foil coated with nonstick spray.

In a small bowl, beat together the egg and 2 tablespoons of milk or water to create your egg wash.

Using my Hello Kitty cutter (which measures 4 1/4 wide x 3 1/2 tall), I cut out the tops and bottoms of the pies (I got 4 out of each crust before I needed to re-roll each of them out, to get 2 more.)

The eyes and nose provide steam vents so that the crust doesn’t get soggy during baking.

Place about 7 marshmallows and 1 tablespoon of chocolate chips on the bottom of the pie. Place on the pie top, and crimp the edges with a fork. Brush with egg wash, and sprinkle some of the sugar on top.

Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.

Well when my sister was six, my mom promised to take our family on a cruise when she turned fifty. This december my mom is turning fifty and my sister hasn’t let her forget it. My sister is now 21. Anyway, these look adorable and I love s’mores. I can’t wait to make these.

Haha, I love that you had to convince her! I can be convinced to do pretty much anythgin if someone tells me I can have ice cream for breakfast too, it’s just the fact of the matter.

Hello Kitty….Fairies. I am so jealous. I would so love to plan a girly birthday. Boys never want a cool themed birthday!

These are really cute, but I loved your commentary even more!
She won’t forget the promise of a car, I can assure you.

You didn’t actually think that with 9 kids, there would be any left did you?!

You say Hello Kitty cutter like it’s a common kitchen object. Did I miss that trend/infomercial? ;-) My Bugs Bunny cutter looks so old-fashioned.

*snort* I KNEW I should have put a disclaimer in there “feel free to use any large cookie cutter” since..um…ya…this Hello Kitty one was ordered on eBay and shipped from Korea!

Would you mind sending me a picture of your Hello Kitty cutter? I am trying to find one and this size would be perfect. I am planning my daughters birthday party.

Haha! It’s awesome that you were the one behind the Hello Kitty theme–but looking at those treats, I totally understand why you pushed this party on her. And yes, she looks totally miserable. Totally. =)

I can definitely understand the temptation to make these pocket pies – they’re SO cute, Amy! I can also identify with steering a child into a mutually agreeable birthday theme. :-) Fun for all!

Please…PLEASE don’t let Katie see these. She’s not even getting a party this year (but don’t feel too sorry for her, both girls get to bring a friend on an overnight adventure to Hershey Park) and she’ll be begging me relentlessly.

But I just may have to make them in secret, for myself. They are THAT cute!!

Next year we’re taking the kids to Disneyland…since they’re birthdays are relatively close together, one trip for both. No parties!!
