Introduction: Octopie

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.

(Also voted for you for Halloween food contest, did you try entering the edible art one?)

Peapodriot (author)annrrr2015-09-30

Thanks for voting. I didn't know about the edible art contest. That would have been a good one to enter.

annrrr (author)Peapodriot2015-09-30

I was hoping there would still be a way to enter . . .
