These Blueberry Pie Fries are a next level dessert! They are super fun to make, super fun to eat, and they are actually secretly healthy, too! I got the inspiration from a similar recipe on Delish, but wanted to create a version that was gluten free, refined sugar free, and dairy free! So, thank you Delish for the inspiration for this super fun treat!!!
If you have ever tried making a Gluten Free pie crust, you know that it can be quite the challenge. A lot of GF options call for Tapioca or some other starchy ingredients, but I don't usually like baking with those. However, by some miracle, this recipe achieves a gluten free crust using only simple ingredients:
- Almond Flour
- Butter (or can sub coconut oil)
- Coconut Sugar
And with those simple ingredients, make that dough! You don't need a Cuisinart or fancy food processor; I love my affordable food processor I bought off Amazon. I use it to make homemade hummus, falafel, nut butters, etc., and it has never failed me! You can even use your hands or a spatula if you don't have a food processor. The important thing here is making sure all the ingredients are incorporated very well.
After you make the dough, you can chill it while you make the filling. This allows the dough to keep its shape better for later when you need to fill it and cut it. If you are really short on time, you *can* skip the chilling step, but be extra careful when you are folding and cutting the crust! This is because the dough is more likely to break if it hasn't been chilled.
Once the fries come out of the oven, let them cool for a few minutes before pulling them apart. This is important!!! Otherwise, they will be too gooey immediately. The cooling process allows these Blueberry Pie Fries to really coagulate and stick together as single units, rather than a big, fat mess.
