This is probably the busiest pie-making week of the year and if you’ve got a lot of pie scraps lying around, don’t throw them away! Pie fries are a much tastier alternative. They’re easy, delicious and make a creative dessert or a sweet appetizer for the nibblers in your family.
All you need is:
Pie dough scraps
Jam or preserves (for dipping)
Simply cut your pie scraps into French fry shapes, brush them with butter, sugar and spices. Then bake them on a cookie sheet in an oven preheated to 375 for 10 minutes, or until crispy around the edges.
Serve them with jam or various leftover pie fillings on the side for dipping.
