Introduction: Strawberry + Nutella Pi(e)s on a Stick
Strawberry and Nutella are great but in a pie? On a stick? On Pi Day?? It's almost irrational!
strawberries, cut into small pieces
egg for egg wash
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Roll out the pie dough and cut out circles using a 2-1/2″ biscuit cutter.
Place the discs on a silpat lined baking sheet. Press the popsicle sticks into the dough so that they’ll stay put when baking.
Place the cut strawberries in the center of the discs. Add a dollop of nutella in the center and place another disc of dough on top. pinch the edges closed – just a warning, liquid is bound to ooze out.
Print out a Pi symbol and cut it out to make a template. Place it over rolled out pie dough and using a clean x-acto, cut out the dough. Place the pi symbol on top of your little pies.
Brush the tops with an egg wash: on egg, beaten with a few Tablespoons of water.
Bake the pies for 12-15 minutes until browned then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
A perfectly nerdy treat for the nerdiest day of the year!
