3 Uses for Pocket Makers

Hey guys!


I am 1000000% sure I’ve mentioned pocket makers before. I’ve probably told that I’m obsessed and these things are literally life changing (well, food changing at least). And all of that is true. But I recently realized that I never actually shared any recipes/things you can make with them. So today I have a list of 3 of my favorite things to do with pocket makers!


  • Be a Kid Again - Take a step back to your elementary school days with these delicious and creative PB&J sandwiches. Make a slight indent of the pocket maker shape into a piece of bread. Add a small scoop of peanut butter and a small scoop of the jelly/jam of your choice. Put another piece of bread on top and push down with the pocket maker until you hear a small click. Cut the excess bread not in the pocket maker, and voila, you now have super fun, no-cook, PB&J sandwiches.
  • PIZZA PARTY - Another staple food, PIZZA can be made using these pocket makers. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Make a slight indentation into a piece of Pillsbury pizza dough. Add some pizza sauce and shredded mozzarella cheese and if you’d like a slice of pepperoni. Take another piece of the dough on top and press down with the pocket maker until you hear a small click. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 13 to 20 minutes, until they are golden brown. This will make about 4 or 5.
  • Eat Dessert First - This classic apple pie recipe is a little bit more complicated but it’s still delicious and fairly easy. You’ll need 1 apple (I prefer green but red works too), 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp +1 tsp brown sugar, ¼ tsp + ⅛ tsp cinnamon, ¼ tsp cornstarch, 1 package (2) pie crusts. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Slice the apple very thinly and then cut the slices into small pieces. In a saute pan, melt the butter and then add the apple and cook for about 3 minutes. Add 1 tbsp of brown sugar and ¼ tsp of cinnamon and cornstarch. Cook until you have a thick mixture. Make a slight indentation of the pocket maker into one of the pie crusts. Add the mixture and lay another piece of pie crust on top. Press down on the pocket maker until you hear a soft click. Mix the remaining brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top of the pockets. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, until it turns slightly brown. This will make 4 or 5.


So these are 3 of my favorite things to do with pocket makers. They're so easy and adorable to make. Share pictures of you final products with us for a chance to be featured on social media. Also let me know what you thought of these recipes!
