I’m in love with all things refrigerated dough. Rolls, pizza dough, pie dough. If it comes in tubes or cans, I want to use it.
It cuts out so much work and I can get things made before I have to go to work. If you want to use homemade dough for any of my recent projects, please feel free. I love working with homemade dough when I have the hours to put into it but during this season, anything that I can do to cut time out of my schedule is optimal.
This was an experiment, part of my Death of a Peep project looking for ways of using up Easter project. These taste good but the marshmallows melted down into a sugar glaze.
With the size cutter I used for this batch, one single pie crust gave me five pies. I used 2 1/2 peeps. If you don’t want to use peeps, use 1 large marshmallow per pie.
Use whatever size cutter you want but make sure you change the amount of marshmallow per pie to account for the size of the dough. Depending on your marshmallows they may melt down and glaze the insides of your pies.
If you want to, glaze the tops of the pies and sprinkle with sugar prior to placing them in the oven. With peeps already being sugared, I didn’t want even more sugar in the recipe.
Pie crust-at least one single crust. More crust will give you more pies
peeps-figure 1/2 peep per pie
Pre-heat oven to 350.
Let your dough warm enough that you can work with it.
Cut out your pie bases, making sure that you re-roll your dough as necessary to give you an even number of rounds.
Cut your peeps in half, placing one half on a round. Surround the peep with chocolate chips.
Wetting the bottom round place another round on top and crimp the edges with a fork.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
Remember, depending on your marshmallows they may melt down in the pie.
I’m putting my mod hat on here. My comment policy works like this and has for years: I allow for most every comment as long as it’s not openly abusive; however, that doesn’t mean that the comment will receive responses that are gentle from any user of the site-if someone wants to respond in kind [including anyone writing on the site] they are free to comment as well. But, I don’t want to moderate flame wars over Easter candy either. Comments are now locked on the entry until further notice.
