Deconstructed Cherry Pie Drawing (Happy B-day w/ flowers)
This is a Deconstructed Cherry Pie Drawing! Deconstructed pie is just filling and crust in a form that is not exactly like a traditional pie. Here, instead of making a cherry pie, I used pie crust to write "Happy B-Day! and to add some grass and flower stems. I wasn't thinking about Garden Foccacia, but it is sort of like that too.
To eat, you just scoop up how much filling you want and how much crust you want. You can add ice cream to if you want.
What I used:
- Pillsbury Pie Crust
- Homemade cherry filling (cherries, 1/2 cup of water, 1/4 cup of sugar)
- Vanilla Ice Cream (optional)
I just used a butterknife to carve out the letters. If you want to make an "H" for example, then it is easier to cut out a rectangle the size of the letter you want tomake, then carve out the small pieces to finish making the "H". Similarly, with an "A," carve out an isosceles triangle and then cut out the small spaces to form the "A".
I used the scraps to make grass at the bottom and some flower stems with the plan that a cherry would complete the flowers.
Here it is before baking.
Here it is after baking with some cherries added.
If you did not want to do a drawing, but wanted to make a deconstructed pie, you can just the pie crust into pieces as shown here. One benefit of this is that people get to have as much or as little pie crust as they want.
As I mentioned above, you just scoop out how many cherries you want and how much pie crust you want. You can add ice cream if you want.
Give it a try! We are good at this!
