I honestly wasn't paying attention to the crust that was posted or the one online. I just thought it would be easier to have smaller amounts of dessert if the dessert were inherently smaller by portion size.

Your idea of making the smaller individual sized pies is a great idea and an awesome tool for portion control..

Even then it is a matter of controlling how many you put in your mouth..
My Southern side kicked in and added the idea of using a short bread recipe for the crust of the individual pies...

My point was using flour, sugar and a solid oil or lard vs using sugar, flour and butter is a 6 of one half a dozen of another type of situation...
Fat is fat... Sugar is Sugar and Flour is Flour: 6 of 1 or 6 of 12 it is a personal choice.
Portion control is portion control no matter how many individual pies or slices you choose to eat...

Default Almost Derby Time!

The KY Derby is this Saturday and here's what's on the menu:

cheese grits w/ bacon slices and jumbo shrimp
baked asparagus
homemade rolls
fresh fruit mix (strawberries, cantaloup, blueberries, pineapple, watermelon)
mint julep drink (bought from local maker)
homemade Derby Pie (made w/ Maker's Mark Kentucky Bourbon)

It's all artery cloggin' here, folks. But it's so good!

Yes! I have basically the same menu, but I'm making the BBQ shrimp & grits featured in this post w/ cornbread instead of rolls... should be delicious!!

And Maker's Mark is the only way to go... and believe me, I'll be gone tomorrow night, haha .

Have fun!!
