Beast from the deep!

Step 1:

This pie is a blend of 3 cups of frozen quartered cherries, blueberries, and grapes. I added 1/4 cup arrowroot powder (you can use cornstarch powder instead), 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 tbls nutmeg.

Step 2:

The dough was cut to create the body, tentacles, and eyelids. You can use up to two additional sheets of store bought dough to create this effect.

In a 400* oven, set the pie on a foil or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake covered for one hour. Uncover during the last five minutes so everything browns beautifully.

Step 3:

I was amazed that the fruit juices didn't pour over the edge and the whole cherry eyes stayed intact and they didn't leak. It turned out better than expected.

Step 4:

I loved how fast the fruit jelled and we were able to eat it hot. It's a bit gruesome to slice up, but with three nerdy science kids in the house, they loved it anyway!

A perfect desert for your Halloween party.
