Now we know why Hera really wanted those meilooruns.
If Hera asks you to go out on a run for meiloorun fruit, beware, it could take you all day. Citrusy and tart, yet sweet, meiloorun makes for a delicious jam. Not to worry, you can always substitute a good jar of apricot jam if you can’t find meiloorun locally.
These tasty hand pies are easy to make and even easier to eat. And they're the perfect snack for the premiere of Star Wars Rebels -- Saturday, September 24, at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD!
Meiloorun Hand Pies
1 package pie dough
1 (12 oz) jar apricot jam
1 egg plus 1 tablespoon water, for egg wash
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1-1/2 tablespoons water
Orange food gel dye
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Prep a baking sheet with parchment or a silpat.
Roll out the dough and cut into eight 4-inch by 6-inch rectangles. Place four of the rectangles onto the prepped baking sheets.
Brush the tops of the pies with the egg wash and bake for 18 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
In a small bowl stir together the powdered sugar and water. Spoon or pipe the icing onto each of the cooled hand pies and let set.
When the dye has dried the pies are ready to serve, and you're ready for a snack the Ghost crew would love.
