Intro: "Easy As Pie" Pie
My mom used to make a cobbler recipe with a cookie dough crust so for this pie day I decided to turn it upsidedown and make it a pie! It's so simple, if you can use a knife and turn on an oven you can make this pie!
Step 1: Ingredients
Here's what you need:
-roll of premade cookie dough
-whatever fruit you want to put in the pie. Fresh fruit is best, but it's winter so I got a bag of frozen mixed berries which will work fine.
-optional cinnamon and sugar if you're feeling fancy. The crust is really sweet though, so you don't need much sugar.
- butter or oil to grease the pie pan
Step 2: Make the Crust
Cut the roll of cookie dough into slices about one quarter inch thick. This works best if the cookie dough is frozen solid, cut it with a sharp knife and keep it in the wrapper. Arrange the cookie dough rounds in the pie pan after removing the wrapper. It's OK if there is space between them, the cookie dough will spread out as it cooks. Cook it according to the directions on the package, in this case, 10 minutes at 325 degrees. Open the oven partway through and use a fork to push the dough down if it starts getting too puffy.
Step 3: Make the Filling
Mix your fruit with the corn starch and cinnamon and sugar if you're using it.
Step 4: Fill Pie Shell and Bake
Put your fruit filling in the pie crust you just made and bake for 20-30 minutes at 375 degrees. Take the pie out and arrange the rest of the cookie dough on top of it and bake for 10-15 more minutes or until the cookie dough on top is golden brown.
Step 5: Enjoy Your Pie!
Wait a few minutes for your pie to cool and then eat it! It's great with ice cream!
