Pie crusts are not just for placing in a baking dish and filling; use them as stackers for interesting new desserts
When you roll out pie dough, it's typically in a circular fashion for placing in the familiar round pie pan. Then you fill it with any number of fruits and such, cover with another dough layer, and then bake it.
Pie crust stackers will give you easy opportunities to create interesting desserts without the hassle of making a complete pie. These are similar to baking those extra strips of leftover dough and eating them straight up when they're done.
You can also use the pre-made dough from the grocery store - they'll be just as good as from scratch. Spread it out, cut into any shape you wish, such as wedges or from your favorite cookie cutters. Separate and brush with an egg wash. Bake according to directions and remove to cool.
Now, all that remains is creating the stackers - place a finished crust on the plate, add your favorite fruit (sliced) and a bit of whipped cream. Top with another crust, add more fruit and whipped cream - it's done.
You can also add
more sweetness with sugar and cinnamon if desired. Drizzle with chocolate
or create your own concoction. The kitchen will smell wonderful and
you'll have an easy dessert stacker that everyone will love.
