How to Make Potpourri Pie

Save

These "pies" make great hostess gifts and, around the holidays, those little extras you love to give. Each pie costs around a dollar depending on the brand of potpourri you use.

Things You'll Need

  • Ribbons
  • Glue Guns
  • Hot Glue Sticks
  • Potpourri
  • Egg Whites
  • Flour
  • Salt
  • Old Pie Pans (pot Pies)
  • Pastry Brushes
  • Rolling Pins
  • Cutting Wheels
  • Use small pie pans such as potpie tins.

  • Make a dough of 2 c. flour, 1 c. salt and 1 c. water.

  • Roll the dough out to piecrust thickness, or about 1/4 inch thick.

  • Cut six 1/2-inch-wide strips with a knife or cutting wheel.

  • Turn the pie tin upside down and weave dough strips. You'll be creating a shallow dome.

  • Use an over-and-under pattern to weave three strips in one direction and three in the perpendicular direction.

  • Cut one strip long enough to wrap completely around the pan across the strips to anchor them.

  • Press the dough strip ends into this band.

  • Brush with egg white. This will give it a shiny look.

  • Bake at 325 degrees F until it's a nice golden brown.

  • Cool.

  • Pry the crust from the pan gently.

  • Fill the pan with potpourri.

  • Place the fancy lattice crust on top.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can tie the crust to the top of the pan with a ribbon, or hot glue around the edge of the crust and pan - the latter will be permanent.
