Two days ago my keyboard just decided that it had had enough. It was going on strike. It worked the night before, but when I woke up...The jig is up, Mufasa, I'm outtie.
Weird thing is, it was a new keyboard. Like, a month old. *I'm looking at you HP*. I had had it over a year, it came with my computer, but I just kept using my old one, until I got a new desk. Don't ask why, but for some reason, new computer doesn't = new keyboard. New desk, however, totally = new keyboard. Don't ask.
I just plugged the new guy in. Look, I'm not even correcting my mistakes if I make them, because sometimes keyboards are , like, way different for some unknown, companies are tryinta drive us crazy, reason. So, yeah, mistakes... they stay. We'll call this an organic post. Unaltered, man, unaltered.
So, my old new keyboard decided that it would only capitalize the letters it wanted to. And just the punctuation it felt like. There was no rhyme or reason. At first I thought it was just the bottom row of keys, but no, my T wouldn't work either. (Oh! lookit! A capital T! I haven't seen one of those in 2 days!). The biggest problem though? (HELLO QUESTION MARK! I'VE MISSED YOU, MY FRIEND). The lack of a question mark. I started sending emails and Facebook posts where I would say something like "Do you know what time that starts question mark", "Have you see that yet question mark", "Do you know what I mean question mark".
In case you've ever doubted this fact, question marks are important and ? is much easier than typing 'question mark' every time you ask something.
Last week, I made Pie Pops for the Bean to take in to Math Class for Pi Day. Last year I made apple. This year I decided to make cherry, but at the last second, I also decided to make chocolate. Those were such a hit that it inspired this SUPER EASY recipe.
It's also one that the Bean declared "Stupid good".
And. Easy. Did I say easy? Cause. Easy.
Oh, and these aren't really calzones at all, they are made of pie crust, not pizza crust, I just called them that because of the shape :)
Pie Crust. Chocolate chips. Egg Whites. Sugar.
And if you want a glaze, you'll only need a few more ingredients!
Butter. Powdered Sugar. Water. Vanilla. Cocoa Powder.
Cut out crust, add chips, fold, bake.
The dip puts these lil guys OVER THE TOP!!!!!
These have become a new quick treat for the Bean.
And you know what? I'm not even fond of pie crust, but... I like these!!
I wouldn't eat them without the dip though, they are a bit too dry for my liking.
Did I make it through this post typo free??

For the Calzones:
For the dip:
1 cup powdered sugar
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 Tablespoon hot water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
For chocolate dip:
add 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 375F
Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicon mat or grease cookie sheet
Roll out your pie crust (refrigerated is fine!). Using a standard sized biscuit cutter, cut out circles of dough. Add a scant teaspoon of chocolate chips (or white chocolate chips, or add some caramel bits, or nuts, etc!), moisten the rim of the crust, and fold over. Press to seal. Brush with egg whites and dust with granulated sugar.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden.
As they are baking, whip up your dip.
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the butter and powdered sugar. Add in your water. Whisk until glossy. Stir in vanilla.
If making a chocolate glaze, add 1-2 Tablespoons of cocoa to taste. Whisk well.
This is what I got from 1 refrigerated pie crust, I cut 18 circles to make 9 calzones.
I didn't reroll the crust after cutting, if you did that you could certainly get a few more.
