One day I was thinking up of ways to dress up the pies I make. There are tons of cut outs, braids, pinches, and other crust ideas I was looking at. Fact is, I wasn’t in the mood for something intricate or used a cutter I didn’t have. Sometimes I get very lazy. Then it hit me! Why not paint the crust for a little show.
I had read recipes in the past about painting cookies before baking them and figured it should also work for pie crust. So, this Easter if you’re not in the mood to die eggs, go ahead and dye your pie! It’s fun, easy, and super easy for kids.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Pie crust (bought or homemade)
Food Coloring (for natural dies go here)
All you have to do is mix up the colors you want (I watered mine down, hence the water in the list) and paint on the color scheme or design you want on your crust. I would stick to the end of the pie crust since the rest you really wouldn’t see in the end. You could cut out some eggs or other shapes to put on top of the filling to paint as well. *You won’t need a lot of dye, a little goes a long way.
Have fun! What are your favorite Easter projects?
