Back to school season is here and I’ve been busy pinning easy snack and lunch ideas that I can make for the kiddos. On the first day of school, I have a little tradition to make some sort of apple inspired treat for the kids to enjoy after school. Last year I made apple crisp and this year I’ll be making these apple pie fries. They are so delicious, much less time intensive than a full blown pie and they make for a great back to school treat! They remind me of the apple fries from Legoland, one of our favorite theme park desserts! What are your back to school traditions?
2 refrigerated pie crust sheets
1/2 cup apple pie filling
1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll out one defrosted refrigerated pie crust sheet on a floured surface.
Step 2: Blend the apple pie filling until there are no more large apple chunks. Spread 1/2 cup of apple pie filling on the pie crust sheet.
Step 3: Place the second pie crust sheet on top of the apple pie filling. Beat an egg and brush it over the second pie crust. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar.
Step 4: Use a pizza cutter to cut the pie crust into strips, as shown below.
Step 5: Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Serve with caramel dip and enjoy!
