My LIl' Pie Maker Review

My Lil Pie Maker Product Review & Giveaway + Gluten Free Pie Crust Recipe

My Lil Pie Maker
We always see commercials for As Seen on TV products, and I sit back and wonder “Does it actually work?” Usually I just watch the commercial and I don’t actually get the product – as neat as they look I don’t know if they’ll actually do what it says! Wouldn’t it be great to be able to try out one of the products? As Seen on TV Products sent me one of their My Lil’ Pie Maker to try and review. I love baking, so I was excited to try it out!

My Lil Pie Maker

The My Lil’ Pie Maker comes with all the tools you need to make pies – you just have to provide the food. It even comes with a recipe guide book with recipes for sweet and savory pies as well as crusts! You can always use your own recipes as well, but what they provide is a great starting point!

The first thing I decided to make with the My Lil’ Pie Maker was chicken pot pies. I’m going to admit – it was for selfish reasons. Being gluten free is hard, and finding good pot pies that I can have and trust, is almost impossible.

I made Gluten Free Rice Crust (the recipe is below) and first put them in the molds. I then added in shredded chicken I had left over from a rotisserie from the weekend. I made the rest of my filling in a large pot, sauteed some carrots, onion and celery and made a roux, and added in my stock. I spooned this over the chicken.

The next step was easy, I rolled out the rest of my dough and used the top cutter to cover each one of the pies. I marked them each with an X so they will properly brown and bake.

My Lil Pie Maker

In under 45 minutes I had four little chicken pot pies. It was so simple to do! Since the pies were small, two made a fantastic dinner.

Even with the gluten free crust they stood up and were crisp on the outside. Inside was soft and juicy from the sauce. I think next time I would add more sauce inside so the meat and veggies inside had extra sauce while eating. They were delicious for dinner.

The only thing I wish the My Lil’ Pie Maker had was the ability to make more than four at a time – I’m going to have to order more. The forms are extremely easy to wash and easy to get your food in and out of. I was worried about how hot it would be trying to remove the pies – but the form wasn’t too hot to touch and the pies came out great!

I’m making plans to make more pies soon in the My Lil’ Pie Maker. I can fill my freezer with gluten free pot pies for the cold days coming. I’m also thinking of making mini pies to bring to holiday parties!

Gluten Free Mini Pot Pies

I made the Chicken Pot Pies using a Rice Flour crust. I have my own recipe but recently have had great results using a recipe found on Bob’s Red Mill’s website. I used their recipe with my own pot pie filling and had wonderful pot pies shortly!

Gluten Free Rice Flour Crust

Ingredients:
1/4 cup Melted Butter or Margarine (do not use diet or light)
1 large Egg, slightly beaten
1 pinch Sea Salt
1 Tb Sugar
1/4 tsp Baking Powder
3/4 cup White Rice Flour

Directions: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees
  2. Roll out about half of your dough and use the large cutter to fill your My Lil Pie Maker. If you’re making it gluten free, it will crack and break. Make sure you mend it well with extra pieces or pressing pieces together.
  3. Lump in your meat and fill with your sauce and vegetables.
  4. Roll out remaining dough and use the whole top cutter. Carefully place the top on each pie, cut a slit or two in the top of the pot pie to vent.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes at 425.
  6. Drop your temperature down to 350 degrees and bake an additional 20 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool for a few minutes then remove from the My Lil Pie Maker.*

*I found with the gluten free crust was harder to remove from the My Lil Pie Maker using the bottom release was a bit hard. It was probably because it was gluten free! I felt it crack a little and the filling start to come out, so instead I used a fork to remove them. It slide easily inside and I was able to remove the pies fully intact!

  1. Wow–what a great size for Christmas gift giving to all the elderly in our neighborhood — I think a mini cherry and a peach would be just great–yummo–now I’m hungry for PIE

  2. First I would like to make a peach pie .Then the possiblities are endless.I want to make some ricotta pies and of course chicken Pot Pies.This way I could make my granddaughter who hates some veggies her own with just chicken,potatoes and carrots and then we could all have ours with all veggies.Yum.I have wanted one of these for so long.Thanks.Fingers crossed

  3. I would make peach or blueberry pies, but I never would have thought to use this for pot pies, they look great, I would have to try them too.

  4. Thank you for the review. After seeing at CVS I was thinking about purchasing but was leery. Now I may have to go back and pick a couple up.
