Chocolate-Raspberry Pie Sticks How-To
Turn leftover pie dough into another delicious dessert.
Ever since I was little, I have been creating things from scraps of pie dough, like sprinkling them with sugar and cinnamon. Instead of throwing those scraps away, you can bake little sticks of pie filled with chocolate and raspberry preserves. Using a Pillsbury® Refrigerated Pie Crust, you can make a fun snack for the kids...and the kids at heart!
There are only a few ingredients required to make these sweet sticks.
Take a package of Pillsbury® Refrigerated Pie Crust and unroll it on a cutting board dusted with flour.
Cut into 10 strips, each 3/4-inches-wide. (I cut one strip and use it as a guide.)
Then cut each strip in half. Trim the tops and bottoms to create straight edges.
Brush the dough with the egg wash.
On half of the dough strips, use a toothpick or lollipop stick to form a thin line of preserves down the middle.
Top with 10 to 12 mini chocolate chips.
Place a plain strip of dough over the filling and push down with your fingers to seal. Use a fork or a lollipop stick to crimp the edges.
Brush the tops with the egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until the edges start to brown.
You can make the snack even tastier by preparing a chocolate dipping sauce. While the pie sticks are baking, melt chocolate with cream. If you are serving the treats to adults, add a teaspoon of Chambord.
