Easter is getting closer, and that means it is time to start thinking about candy! My kids love almost any kind of Easter candy, and so do I. Candy is also fun to use in desserts, to make something yummy even better. I decided to see what would happen if I baked a Cadbury Creme Egg into a pie.
The result was a delicious combination of crispy pie crust with melty chocolate and cream.
To make the pies I used some refrigerated pie crust that I had left over. I rolled it out flat, and then cut it into 5 inch circles.
I used a tart pan as a pattern, but anything between 5 and 6 inches in diameter would work. Then I put a Creme Egg in the middle of the pie crust, and sealed the edges with water and fork.
To make it look and taste better I brushed the pie crust with egg white and sprinkled it with sugar. I baked the pies for 10 minutes and let them cool a little bit before eating. These pies were a big hit, and were gone in no time!
- Refrigerated Pie Dough
- Cadbury Creme Egg
- 1 egg white
- 2 T. sugar
- Preheat oven to 450.
- Roll the pie dough out and cut into 5-6 inch rounds.
- Unwrap the eggs and put one in the middle of a circle of dough.
- Seal the pie by brushing the edge with water and crimping with a fork.
- Brush egg white on top of the pie and sprinkle with sugar.
- Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool a little bit before eating because the filling will be hot.
Cadbury Creme Eggs are an Easter tradition, and it is hard not to love their chocolate shell with a creamy interior. This dessert is a fun way to use the candy, and make something different and unexpected!
How are you making Easter special this year?
