TWD: Hungarian Shortbread “aka jelly pie”

on May 1, 2012

The title is odd, yes, but as you read it will all become clear.  This recipe was on my to do list when my 4 year old son came into the kitchen and says “I want to help you make a pie.”  Interesting, I thought, since my son does not usually eat pie.  So I ask him, “what kind of pie?”  He responds, “jelly pie.”  Of course!  I should have known from my son who would eat pb&j for each meal.  Well, this recipe quickly came to mind since it had jelly in it.  Now, normally I would have mad the rhubarb jam that is listed in the recipe, but since it was short notice I had to use what I had on hand, a mix of apricot preserves and grape jelly.  Still, turned out fabulous!  Everyone loved this recipe!  Brought a bunch of it to work, and it was devoured in no time!  The only complaint was from my son.  After it was made he says, “that isn’t a jelly pie…..pies are supposed to be round.”

  1. Looks like yours turned out great. I underbaked my a bit. It is golden brown on the top so I thought it was done in the middle, but it needed more. Maybe because of the glass pan.
