Sweetie pies

I was in a pie baking kind of mood today.  

And because anything is more fun when it is in an individual portion, I made single serving pies.  

Think fast food pies, but cuter.

I made the Barefoot Contessa's pastry dough and then rolled and cut out heart shapes.  

Next, I made filling out what I had on hand; apples, pears, dates, and a few caramel bits (for fun!).   I cut heart shapes out of the center of the top crusts for venting.

To make them extra special, I painted roses and leaves with food coloring.  Before I slipped them in the oven, I carefully brushed cream on the unpainted areas and sprinkled them with sugar.  

To be cautious, I lightly covered them with foil to prevent them from over browning and ruining the colors.  

Then I gave my sweetie pies to my real life sweetie pies.

Did I just make the first shabby chic pie?
