Pie Recipes Spring/Summer

Cool Fourth of July Easy “Pies”

This treat is perfect if you love pie, but don’t want to heat up the kitchen for hours. You still have to bake some of the crust, but it only takes five minutes, not an hour, in the oven.

What You Need
Pie Crust
   You can use store-bought or one of my Two Favorite Pie Crust Recipes
   (Flaky Pie Crust or Rich Pie Crust).
Strawberry-Rhubarb Sauce
   Or you can use store-bought pie filling. Cherry & Blueberry would make a cool red, white and blue pie.
Vanilla Ice Cream

Pretty simple instructions here…

Make the crust.
For mine, I used my Flaky Pie Crust Recipe, and cut it into stars (or even just cut into strips if you want to make it even easier).  Be sure to prick it with a fork before you cut it so that the crust doesn’t get funky air bubbles. Bake at 425-degrees for just 5-7 minutes.
I only used 1/4 of the dough, and it made about six to eight “pies.”

Make the filling.
The Recipe for Strawberry-Rhubarb Sauce is here.

Assemble them in cute cups or mugs, and top with ice cream.

Yum!
