Pie Fries with Apple Pie Dip

Want a fun and easy alternative to the traditional apple pie?  We made some little pie fries with an apple pie dipping sauce. This is easy for kids to eat & so delicious!  It's a great fall treat!



To Make the Pie Fries:

1 1/3 c. flour
5 Tbsp sugar (divided)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c. shortening
3-6 Tbsp ice cold water
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp melted butter

Blend flour, 3 Tbsp of the sugar, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Cut in the shortening using a fork or pastry blender. Mix until crumbly.  Add in half of the cold water and stir. Add additional water 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough holds together. Flatten into a round disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes (up to 2 days).

When ready to cook them, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine 2 Tbsp sugar and the cinnamon.  
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle. Cut into strips with a pizza cutter. Place on a cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter ans sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden. 




For the Apple Pie Dip:

1 apple peeled & diced
1/4 c. applesauce
1 Tbsp butter
1-2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 c. brown sugar

Cook the apple in a small pan with the butter and spices until it is soft.  Add in sugar and applesauce. Cook a few minutes until bubbly. Let cool.



Happy Fall Ya'll!!
