Sauerkraut and Sausage Mini Pies

There is a time when making savory pies for dinner is just what epitomizes family winter adventures in the kitchen. When I was making these pies, the kitchen was a little mess, with flour everywhere and my daughter sharing the table with me (also covered with flour). She was flattening scraps of the leftover puff pastry with her own little rolling pin imitating all my movements (well, trying actually) and using different kinds of gadgets she finds in the drawers in making her own pies.

I let her get dirty. I let her dirty around. I let her explore cooking in her kiddy way. I read once that kids (especially when they are still babies) have the need to feel the food in between their fingers to understand the connection between touch, taste and smell. So pie making is always a mother-daughter event at home. And for that these pies taste a bit more special. 

My recipe for these pies can be accessed at She Knows. It's a site where you can see me often with new recipes to share. Click on this link if you would like to see it.
