The Honest Lazy Pie
Yes, it's true I've been posting a lot of food related content lately. If you are looking for crafty projects, I've got a bunch coming up so stay tuned! As for the food posts... well we have to eat every single day so naturally it makes sense to blog frequently about food. I.Love.Food. Specifically, easy food like this ridiculously easy, lazy pie. Doesn't it look scrumptiously rustic like only homemade food can?
2 packages of 'just add water' pie dough.
2 cans of ready made pie filling
1 egg, beaten
Course sugar (optional)
I used one can of apple pie filling, one can of blueberry pie filling and mixed until well combined.
Make both packages of pie dough according to the directions. Roll the dough out into a nice big round. Once you have it the thickness you want, place it over your pie pan. *Tip, roll the pie dough back around your rolling pin, then lift over the pie pan and roll it out over the pan. This keeps it from falling apart while you transfer it over to the pan.
Add in all of the filling. Fold the excess pie dough over the top. Leave some space in the centre for the steam to escape. Don't worry if it's a little thicker in some spots. There is plenty of pie filling to balance out the excess crust. Finally, brush the top with the beaten egg. I sprinkled some course sugar on top to make it look a little extra special.
Bake in the oven according to the pie crust packaging for a two crust pie with ready made pie filling. Mine took 20 minutes.
Did I mention I baked it in the morning and had to wait the entire day before getting to actually eat it?! Torture! But it was a great after dinner dessert.... and breakfast the next morning *shhhh!*
