My 7 year old came up with this Guy Pie for Father's Day. We made a Rhubarb/Apple pie, but you could use your favorite pie recipe. You can use cookie cutters for any shape or hand cut shapes using kitchen scissors. We put a few recipes together and came up with our own using what we had. It ended up tasting wonderful!
2 cups chopped rhubarb
2 cups chopped apples
1 1/3 cups white sugar
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon butter
1 Package of Pillsbury Pie Crust
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
2. Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon. Sprinkle 1/4 of it over pie crust in pie plate. Mix the chopped rhubarb and apples. We added a drop of red food coloring as well. Heap rhubarb and apples over the sugar and flour mixture. Sprinkle with remaining sugar and flour. Dot with small pieces of butter. Cover with top crust.
3. Cut out daddies favorite things out of the top crust and seal the edges. Daddy in our house likes tools so we cut out some pliers, a hammer, and a screw driver using kitchen scissors.
3. Place the pie on lowest rack in oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and continue baking for 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
I think he came up with a great idea and his daddy loved it!
