Ingredients

1/2
cup apple pie filling
1/2
cup cherry pie filling
1/2
cup blueberry pie filling
3
boxes Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on boxes
1
egg, beaten
Red, white and blue coarse sugar crystals
1 1/2
cups powdered sugar
Water
Red and blue food color
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2 Crush, process or blend each of the pie fillings until semi-smooth and spreadable.
  • 3 Unroll pie crusts. Spread each flavor pie filling onto each of 3 crusts. Top each with 1 remaining pie crust, gently pressing to seal. Brush beaten egg evenly over top of each; sprinkle with their matching color sugar crystals.
  • 4 Cut each filled pie-crust stack into 1-inch-wide strips. Cut each strip once crosswise so “fries” aren’t too long. Place in single layer on cookie sheet.
  • 5 Bake about 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool.
  • 6 Meanwhile, in each of 3 separate bowls, stir together 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar with a few drops of water, stirring just until thick. Leave 1 bowl with white dipping glaze. To make blue and red dipping glazes, stir a few drops of blue and red food color into each of the 2 remaining glazes.
  • 7 Serve “fries” with dipping glazes.
