Apple Pie Fries

I love looking at recipes and thinking "wow, this is brilliant and  easy...why didn't I come up with this?"   Pie fries are definitely something fun and easy to add to my repertoire.   I was hoping to find raspberry pie filling when I was at the store, but didn't see it, so decided to go with the all American apple for my first go round.

{Raspberry pie is by far my favorite pie in the whole wide world!}

Store-bought pie crust (1 box gives you 2 crusts - enough for one flavor of fries), an egg,  the pie filling of your choice blended until spreadable, and sprinkles.   All the sprinkles in the world.     The recipe proposed making three sets of fries:  apple, cherry and blueberry.    I just made apple pie fries (along with dipped strawberries and cookies also with all the sprinkles in the world) for my 4th and 5th of July celebrations.   

I found the recipe for Fireworks Pie Fries on Pillsbury (created by blogger Amy from Oh Bite It):  If you want to make different flavors or to make dipping icing, please hop over and read the original recipe.    

The 1 flavor apple pie fry version:
1 box Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts
1/2 cup apple pie filling (blended or food processed until most of the big apple chunks are gone - you want to spread it)
1 egg, beaten
all the sprinkles in the world (if you are celebrating America:  red, white and blue)

What You Do:

Preheat the oven to 350.  Put a silicone baking mat on your baking sheet.  

Unroll the bottom crust and put it on a large cutting board.    Spoon/spread the apple pie filling over the whole crust.   Top with the other crust.   Lightly pinch the edges together.   Paint the top of the "pie" with  the egg so that the sprinkles have something to stick to.   Take a pizza cutter and cut long strips from top to bottom, about 1 inch wide.    Cut the long ones in half.    Lay the fries on the baking mat and sprinkle away with your favorite colors.    Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.

Share with friends and watch them disappear....just like the long weekend we just had.
