Blueberry Pie Fries

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!!!

The Crust

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
  • Egg
  • Butter (or can sub coconut oil)
  • Coconut Sugar
  • Salt
  • Lemon

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.

Instructions
For the Crust
  1. Add all the pie crust ingredients to a food processor and pulse a few times, until well combined. It should look like it is starting to form a ball. If you do not have a food processor, you can use a big bowl and rubber spatula. Make sure your butter is melted and cooled.
  2. Once the crust is combined, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Press the crust into the plastic wrap with your hands, creating a long rectangle-ish shape, taking up most of the size of your baking sheet. Make sure you use gentle pressure so you don't break the.
  3. Cover the crust and place in the fridge for 1 - 12 hours. Note: If you are rushing, you can skip this step - but it does make the dough easier to handle later.
For the filling
  1. Bring all the blueberry pie filling ingredients to a light boil over medium heat. Stir constantly until a thick and jammy texture is achieved. This should take 6 - 10 minutes. Take mixture off heat to cool.
For the fries
  1. When the crust is almost ready, preheat oven to 350.
  2. Spoon the blueberry pie filling onto half of the rectangle dough. CAREFULLY fold the dough in half. Press down the edges with your fingers, to make sure no filling leaks out!
  3. Brush the top of the fries with egg wash and sprinkle with coconut sugar or a coarse brown sugar.
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut into fry shapes,.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, check to make sure nothing burned, then bake for 5 more. Wait for fries to cool slightly, then pull apart with your hands and enjoy!
