Every year on Pi Day (March 14) I make some kind of pie. Fruit pie, meat pie, pizza pie, you name it. This year I made this simple treat, just enough for a nice dessert. It is really easy to make and also fun to decorate. You will need store bought pie shells (or make your own, I am just lazy) and one apple of your choice.
Slice your apple into 1/2 inch slices. You want the middle pieces for this pie.
Get a ring mold or cookie cutter that fits your apple slice.
Cut out two circles and set aside.
Cut the remaining dough into slices. Try to keep them longer. It will make decorating easier.
Sprinkle the dough with some cinnamon and sugar. If you like your pie sweet, be generous. I used coconut sugar but you can use brown or white sugar.
Place an apple slice on each circle and sprinkle again with sugar and cinnamon.
Now you can decorate your pie in the traditional basket weaving method but I decided to do something different. I lay strips into a spiral shape around the apple. I wish I took more pictures but I hope you get the idea.
Finally cut the edges using your circle mold/cutter. You can do an egg wash or add more sugar at this point. I decided to leave mine plain.
Overall this was a tasty dessert. It could have used a little more sugar, or some jam, or some apple sauce. It would pair well with some vanilla ice cream. I would definitely try this again and change the fruit.
