How to Make Apple Pie Fries in the Oven

Step 1: Remove the pie crusts from their package and set them on the counter to warm up. Allowing the crusts to soften will make them easier to work with. 

Step 2: Then preheat the oven to 350°F.

Step 3: Spray a 9 x 13-inch cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

Step 4: Next, use a large knife to dice up the apples from the pie filling into smaller pieces. Dice them very small they remain inside the pie crust as they bake.

Step 5: Next, dust the counter or a clean cutting board with some flour and roll out one pie crust.

Step 6: Spread the diced apple pie filling in a thin, even layer over the entire pie crust, leaving the very edge of the crust bare.

Step 7: Then unroll the second pie crust and lay it on top, then use a fork to pinch together the outside edge of the pie crusts.

Step 8: Using a pizza cutter, cut ½-inch strips from one side of the pie to the other. Then, cut those strips in half lengthwise.

Step 9: In a small bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Step 10: In a separate bowl, beat the egg, then brush the tops of the apple pie fries with egg wash. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture, then dust with sanding sugar.

Step 11: Transfer the unbaked fries to the greased baking sheet.

Step 12: Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 13: Serve with caramel dip or whipped cream for extra decadence.

Helpful Tips & Substitutions

What is sanding sugar?

Sanding sugar is a large sugar crystal that doesn’t melt when heated. It also reflects light, making it look shiny, and great for decorating!

Can I use my own pie crust recipe?

Yes, you can use your own pie crust in this recipe!

What non-stick cooking spray is best when baking?

I love using Baker’s Joy with flour in it when baking with a non-stick spray!
