Felt - Forever Breathes the Lonely Word Music Album Reviews

Each Sunday, Pitchfork takes an in-depth look at a significant album from the past, and any record not in our archives is eligible. Today, we revisit the misanthropic pop perfection of the indie British band’s sixth and best album.
In November 1986, a writer for NME visited the flat of indie-pop enigma Lawrence. The mononymous musician lived in a quiet suburb outside of Birmingham, England, alone except for a collection of records, a set of first edition Kerouac paperbacks, and enough cleaning products to stock a small hospital ward. “A platoon of Airwick Solids stoically occupy strategic vantage points; the toilet bowl harbors not the usual one, but a breeding pair of those Cartland-pink santisers; a wicker basket provides a mass grave for spent aerosol air fresheners.” Since he rarely left the antiseptic apartment, Lawrence explained that his days were typically spent wasting time with mundane activities, like assiduously washing his floppy brown hair.





Air Fryer Fruit Pies

Air Fryer Fruit Pies are an oil-free version of classic fried pies, or sometimes called hand pies. They cook up light and flaky in the Air Fryer. Choose your favorite fruit filling then top with a creamy vanilla glaze or vanilla ice cream for a winning weeknight dessert.

Total Time - 25 mins

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: air fryer, fruit, pie
Servings: 8 fried pies
Author: Jennifer

  • 1 pkg (14.1 oz) refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 can (20 oz) pie filling your choice of fruit
For glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  1. Preheat Air Fryer to 360 degrees F. Soften pie crusts according to package directions. 
  2. Remove pie crusts from package and place on top of each other. Use a pizza cutter or sharp knife to cut through both crusts into 8 squares (or squarish shapes). The pair of crusts that were cut together will be the top and bottom of each fruit pie. 
  3. Working with the crusts for one pie at a time, spoon about 1 tablespoon of pie filling (*See note about pie filling in blog post) into the middle of each bottom crust. Use your hands to stretch the top crust just slightly and place it on top of the pie.
  4. Use a fork to crimp the edges of the pie crust so that the filling does not leak out.
  5. Place pies in a single layer in the basket of the Air Fryer. Cook 14-16 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.
  6. While pies are cooking, stir together powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk in a small bowl until it’s a thin, pourable consistency.
  7. Drizzle over pies. 
Refrigerated Pie Crust
When you’re short on time and have a hungry family waiting to eat, using shortcut ingredients from the grocery store is a perfect compromise.

The refrigerated pie crusts from the grocery store have come a long way and taste a lot like homemade. Of course you can use your favorite pie crust recipe if you’d like. You’ll need two pie crusts for this recipe.

If you only want four Fruit Pies, you can use one pie crust. Just fold the pie crust in half before cutting it into four equal squares.
Let’s Talk About Cutting The Crusts
Now, you’re going to want the top and bottom crusts of your Fruit Pies to be the same size and shape so that you can seal the edges well. This will prevent your filling from leaking out into your Air Fryer.

The easiest way to ensure that your top and bottom crusts are a matched set is to put your pie crusts on top of each other and cut them at the same time.

The diagram above shows how I cut the round pie crusts into square-ish shapes. If you follow this diagram, you’ll end up with crusts for 8 Fruit Pies.

You can see in the photo below that some of the pies are not exactly square, but the shape is not as important as how they taste. And did I mention that they’re delicious?

A Tip For Using Pie Filling
With these Air Fryer Fruit Pies, you’ll only use about a tablespoon of pie filling in each pie. Since you’re using such a small amount of filling, you may want to cut the fruit into smaller chunks so that it’s easier to fit them into the pie crust.

I always cut up the fruit when I make peach fried pies or apple fried pies. I have an easy way for you to cut the fruit smaller! Just take a sharp knife and push it down into the can of fruit filling then make a few slices through the filling in the can.

Run a sharp knife through the pie filling in the can to cut the fruit smaller. Easy!

That’s really all there is to it. I feel like I’m not explaining it well, but it’s a great trick for these Fruit Pies.

Aren’t Those Crimped Edges Pretty?
They’re not perfect but they’re still pretty.

It’s important that you get the edges of your Fruit Pies sealed so that the filling won’t leak out. I like to press the edges down with my finger then go back over it and crimp the edges with a fork.

I mentioned in the recipe but it’s helpful to stretch the top crust with your fingers just a bit before putting it on top of the Fruit Pie. This helps make just a little bit of extra room for your filling.

Place the Air Fryer Fruit Pies in a Single Layer
I know I say this all the time, but it’s important that food is not crowded in the Air Fryer. I have a Cozyna XL 5.8 QT Air Fryer and I can fit 4 Fruit Pies in the basket at one time.

I might have been able to fit one more pie in my basket but if I’m going to have to cook another batch, I may as well cook half the pies each time.

These pretty Air Fryer Fruit Pies cook up in about 14 – 16 minutes in the Air Fryer.

Top with Vanilla Glaze
The glaze for these pretty pies are simply powdered sugar, milk, and a little bit of vanilla extract. You don’t want your pies swimming in glaze so about a cup of powdered sugar will do it.

The glaze needs to be thin and pourable. I just drizzle it on top of the Fruit Pies with a spoon and that’s all there is to it.

These Air Fryer Fruit Pies are super easy. You can use any fruit filling that you’d like. We made Cherry Pies and Apple Pies and they were both excellent. Next time maybe I’ll try some Peach Pies. Or chocolate! Or lemon! The possibilities are endless.

The MateBook 14 might be a slightly chunkier and heavier version of the flagship X Pro, but the weight is a small price to pay considering that this laptop is a much cheaper option.
What you lose (or gain, really) in weight, is made up for by additional ports, better performance and longer battery life. You only really need to pass on this if Thunderbolt is an absolute must.

Xiaomi M365 Electric Scooter Review

We test Xiaomi's electric scooter, which will keep the big kids entertained for hours. It's now officially available in the UK, too, which makes it even more appealing.
Should I Buy The Xiaomi Electric Scooter?
The Xiaomi Electric Scooter is expensive and not allowed on UK roads out the box, but if you have somewhere to take it this toy is an awful lot of fun. It's fast, smooth and almost entirely silent, with a battery that just keeps on going and decent brakes that stop you quickly but safely. This scooter is best reserved for the big kids, but that's no bad thing.
