It was a wonderful snowy weekend here perfect for baking.I was in the local shop the other day with our oldest granddaughter and we saw a pie mold for Pie Fries. I thought, “do I really need a mold for that?” The answer is below! Smile
What You Need
- I Pre-made refrigerator pie crust ( or if you are feeling ambitious your favorite pie crust dough) I used Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust
- 4 cups fresh raspberries
- 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1/3 cup cornstarch
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp. warm water
- Flour (for dusting rolling pin and counter)
- 1/4 Cup confectioners sugar ( for topping)
- Whipped topping ( for dipping) yes that is an egg cup filled with whipped cream in the photo:-)
- Rolling pin
- Baking sheet
- Mixing Bowl
- Small bowl
- Parchment paper
- Piping bag
- Basting brush
- Baking sheet
Before You Start : in a small bowl combine egg and water and beat lightly with a fork. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 375°. Dust a clean surface with flour.
Lets Make It: In a saucepan combine raspberries, lemon juice, water, cornstarch, sugar and cook over medium high heat , stirring frequently until the fruit breaks down and it reaches your desired consistency. Remove from heat and let cool (about 20 minutes). Fill your piping bag with 3/4’s of the cooled raspberry filling and set aside.
Using a floured rolling pin, roll out the pie dough to form a thin square about 1/8 inch thick.. Cut narrow strips of the dough about 2 1/2 inches wide and 4 inches long. Using the piping bag pipe a full line of raspberry filling down one side of the dough. Roll filled dough strip onto itself, raspberry side towards the dough side (like a thin jelly roll). Place on prepared baking sheet seam side down about 1 1/2 inches apart, lightly pinch ends. Repeat until you have used all of the dough. Using a basting brush lightly baste the tops of the pie fries with the remaining raspberry filling. Bake for 8-12 minutes turning once half way through (until golden brown). Let cool on parchment paper. Serve warm with whipped topping, sprinkled with confectioners sugar , or both Use any remaining raspberry filling for dipping.
Makes about 12-16
