How to make Muffin-Tin PiesHow to make Muffin-Tin Pies3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
This is a really fun recipe I use for the Holidays and parties! ^-^
The steps listed below will make approximately one/one-and-a-half batches of twelve mini mixed-berry pies. Just use a regular muffin tin, and you can use paper muffin cups if you like, but if you don't I recommend spraying the ENTIRE muffin tin (not just the cups) before putting in the dough to help them come out easier.
The Oven will need to be pre-heated to 350 degrees before the pies can go in the oven.
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 cup shortening (I generally use Crisco)
3/4 cup butter (chilled)
6 Tablespoons of ice water
Making the dough:
1.) Cut up butter into medium-sized cubes and return it to the refrigerator for later use.
2.) Cut up the shortening and drop in chunks into a bowl of ice water.
3.) In a separate bowl (large), combine flour, sugar and salt and then mix well.
3.) After they are chilled, remove the shortening from ice water, the but

Lovino casually slammed your front door open all intense-like. You didn't mind very much though since he was your closest friend- plus, you did it to him all the time anyways. He seemed to look very happy today- which was pretty unusual unless he had something planned.
He ran over and sat next to you on the sofa, throwing your reading book somewhere and hitting a wall. He tapped your head with a little white bag- the ones that're usually bought at dollar stores and used for party favors and such. Lovino stuck his hand inside of the bag and pulled out a fake mustache, waving it teasingly in front of your face.
"I got de moostache, you like de moostache? Si, si, si?"
You puckered your lips and imitated his accent, grabbing another mustache from the bag, "Si, si, si, SI, me gusto de moostache~"

The soft melody of the music box was distant, but you could hear it clearly, like it was right next to your ear.
"Why couldn't you have loved me?" The familiar voice echoed through the halls, repeating.
You ignored the question and stumbled further through the hall, gasping for air.
The hall seemed to stretch out with every staggering step you took. You looked down the hall and saw nothing but darkness. The hall was never ending.
"You could have avoided this..." The familiar voice sighed, words faded, "If you only picked the right choice..."
You fell to the ground with a thud. The sound bouncing through the empty hallway.
The plucks of the string grew louder. The music growing louder.

Through some marvelous twist of fate, you had managed to land yourself an amazing opportunity. Your art university offered a four semester study abroad in Italy which you gladly accepted. Despite how excited you were to be going to Italy, the flight over had been brutal. Nothing, absolutely nothing, irritated you like the small child in the back of the plane screaming for three hours. And of course your assinged dorm was on the top floor. Even better? No elevator. You trudged up the stairs to what you could only imagine was a five star hotel room. Add jet-lag to all that, and let's just say you were not at all a happy person at the moment.
When you finally reached the door to your dorm, you noticed a note stuck to it with sloppy black ink scawled across it.

"You think you have the power to defeat me?" the Warlord sneered as the two figures flew into the sky to meet him.
Hyper Sonic and Solar Blaze only smirked in response as they shot towards the now-flesh spirit. The Warlord snarled and tried to keep them back, shooting energy beams at the two, but for small targets, they were easily able to avoid each blast. Annoyed, the Warlord gathered his power and instead concentrated it into a massive energy ball and hurled it at them. Hyper Sonic jumped ahead and easily swapped the ball away, sending it back to the Warlord and striking him head on. As he staggered back from the hit, he was suddenly knocked forward from a strong kick in the head by Solar Blaze.

It clung around your body like a sleeve on your arm, you had gloves going to your elbow to replace the sleeves, even the shoulder straps were missing and your boobs were practically sitting in a bowl with your cleavage visible.
