Pie has been a staple on tables since the Middle Ages, even moonlighting as a breakfast food. (Yeah, I know, that was kind of an oxymoron). This recipe brings the enduring dessert to a whole new frontier, eliminating the need for forks and fuss. Use your Silicone Wonder® Mat to make cleanup easy as pie.
- 2 9"/23 cm refrigerated pie crusts
- ½ cup desired canned pie filling, roughly chopped if containing large piece such as apple
- ½ tsp. Cinnamon-Vanilla Seasoning
- 1 tsp. granulated sugar
- 1 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 400° F/200° C.
- Place pie crusts on Pastry Sheet and use tree holiday cookie cutter* to cut out pie crust. 2 trees make 1 pie. It may be necessary to reroll excess dough to make 3 pies using 1 crust.
- Place 1 tbsp. pie filling on top of tree shape and place another tree shape over filling. Gently press edges together using tines of a fork.
- Using fork, pierce the top pie crust a few times.
- Brush top of pie with melted butter and sprinkle with seasoning and sugar.
- Place Silicone Wonder® Mat on a cookie sheet and place pies on Silicone Wonder® Mat. Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown.
The large star shape also works to make hand pies, however, use ½ tbsp. of filling instead.
