Pie Fries


Here's a simple and sweet snack to go along with the burger bite cookies:) Actually they're a yummy treat all on their own! And did I say simple?  All it requires is a prepared pie crust or leftover scraps. I made it even easier by using a Pillsbury Pie crust that I had in the fridge:)
 I'm sure many of us have baked pie crust scraps over the years and sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar. Why not make them more presentable by converting them to "pie fries"?

This great idea was found in Food Network Magazine(June 2011), which was originally snatched from Dani Cone of High 5 Pie shop.


Pie Fries:
Cut pie crust (or pie crust scraps) into strips with a fluted pastry wheel. 
Brush with melted butter.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and suger.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes.
Eat "as is" or dip into jam, pie filling or frosting:)



3/14/13  I’m partying at the Pi Day Pie Party at Crazy for Crust today. Come party with us!

Enjoy!

  24. These look so good. I am going to try them and use them to go with a pumpkin dip I am making for my daughter's baby shower.

  25. 1. Do you need to pre-grease the cookie sheet pan before you put the strips down?

    2. Do you separate the strips on the pan or just put the circle of dough down, cut strips and leave in place?

    1. I used stoneware to bake them on which requires no prepping of the surface, so I guess it depends what you are baking them on. You could line the sheet with parchment paper to be safe.
      I cut the strips and then placed them on the baking sheet. Hope this helps! Enjoy!
