a traveling Wife: Pie Dough Fries

Pie Dough Fries

Thursday, February 18, 2016

Next time you are making homemade pie dough, don't throw out the scraps. Instead, roll them out into crispy, buttery, and sweet Pie Dough Fries. 

I am not one to waste food. First off, it's expensive. Secondly, there already is enough waste in this world. The same goes with my perfect pie crust scraps. Hello, those can be used to make a tasty little snack with little to no effort on your part!

Since we've already made Frozen Berry Pie and got a taste of Grandma's Fresh Strawberry Pie, let's use the dough scraps to make Pie Dough Fries. Did someone say fries?! Oh yes I did.

These couldn't be more simple to make since you already put the work in to make the homemade pie crust. Just roll out your scraps and cut them into 'fry' strips with a knife or pizza cutter. Then brush them with some melted butter and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on them. Voila! In roughly 10 minutes, you'll have yourself a sweet snack.
