To make a Raspberry Pi Pie Croquembouche, you will need some time, as it's a bit time consuming to cut out and make all of the 2 inch individual pies, but trust me, it's worth it for a great Pi Day celebration! If you're wondering what a Croquembouche is, it's traditionally a cone shaped tower of cream filled puff pastry, however I was inspired by a macaron croquembouche and the latest release of Raspberry Pi to come up with the Raspberry Pi Pie Croquembouche. There's also some math involved, including pi...but don't worry I did the math for you (since as you can see in a later step my math was actually off, I actually just figured out how many pies to make by trial and error ) so you're in luck!
Step 1: Ingredients/Supplies
For the Raspberry Pi Pie Croquembouche you will need a few ingredients as well as a few tools. In the ingredients, you will need one box of 2 refrigerated Pillsbury pie crust, good raspberry jam, rolling pin, cookie sheet, round toothpicks, 2 inch shot glass or round cookie cutter and rolling pin (as well as a 2 small spoons, a fork and a sharp knife (not pictured).
For the tower you will need a foam cone that is 3 7/8 x 11 7/8, a piece of 12 x 12 scrapbooking paper, hot glue, double sided tape and a plate. Covering the tower is optional, however it makes a much nicer final product as when you remove each pie, you see the decorative paper, versus the bare styrofoam.
