Crispy Pie Crust Individual Pie Cups!

Colleen Sowa


I love pie crust, but don't like soggy pie crust... So this is what I like to do to solve that problem!

It is a Win Win Win! Pretty, unusual, and so good!

My grandchilden love to help make these with me, it is easy and fun for all of us. We made these for a party last year using several sizes and styles of glass dishes, they were a big hit!

Such a great way to serve pie or savory pot pies, make this ahead of time, and just place them on the banquet table or at individual place settings!

Make and bake extra strips for dipping!

A real conversation piece! Play with your food

5Place four strips together in a basket weave design.

Touch each intersection of dough with a dot of water to use as a "glue", gently press down on the intersections of the dough to help seal it together.

9Put desired pie filling into dishes and add one or two of the woven pie crust grids on top of each glass dish.

I have used home made fillings and store bought... both are good.

For a pumkin "pie", I use pumkin pie filling, sugar and spices mixed with Cool Whip and put in the dishes... it does not have eggs and it is good.
