One of the best parts of making pie crust is that you always have pie crust leftover!
Don’t throw that pie crust away – make Pie Fries! Flaky, tender pie crust covered in butter and cinnamon sugar. Yum!!
I saw this cute idea in one of my Food Network magazines and had to try it. You might even want to make pie crust just so you can make Pie Fries
To make your pie dough please follow my Perfect Pie Crust Tutorial.
Roll your dough out a little thicker than you would for a pie crust. This pastry is so tender and flaky that if they are too thin they will break when you try to remove them from the cookie sheet. I wish I had rolled mine out a bit thicker.
Use a pizza cutter to cut out the size of fries that you’d like. I then rolled the dough up from the end into a little spiral to make it easier to transfer to the cookie sheet and then just unrolled them again.
Transfer them to a cookie sheet. Even if they don’t look all nice and even and pretty they will still taste good!!
Brush them with some melted butter.
And sprinkle them with some cinnamon sugar. I use about 1/2 cup sugar to 1 Tbsp cinnamon.
Bake in 350 degree oven for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Time will depend on thickness of fries.
Allow them to cool and then they are ready to eat!
I like to dip them into a little raspberry or strawberry jam. I had a container of jam in my freezer that hadn’t set up so it was perfect!
I am thinking a little nutella would be pretty amazing too!
So easy, so fun and so delicious!! Pie Fries!
