WHAT TO DO WITH EXTRA PIE DOUGH?
It has been a lazy Sunday and after making a delicious blueberry pie with apple crumble, I found myself with 1/4 a pie crust recipe. Frustrating because it is not enough to make another pie and it seems to always happen. I decided to try and come up with a solution so I wouldn’t have to toss it out. After looking around my fridge and pantry, I found some Lingonberry jam and chocolate chips. It would have to do to make a sweet treat. If my little Sunday experiment worked, I could substitute out the jam and chocolate chips for pretty much and flavoured filling in the future.
Since today was all about easy, I rolled out what was left of my pastry dough to about 1/8 of an inch thick. Exact shaping is not necessary. That would require too much energy. This is a LAZY Sunday pie roll after all.
I added 3 heaping spoonfuls of my jam and 1/2 C of semi-sweet chocolate chips trying to distribute it evenly over the dough.
Then, I carefully rolled it into a tight roll.
Because the ends were open, I gently tucked them under and pinched the dough to seal the ends. My creation now looked like a log.
Gently, I placed the log onto a baking sheet where I gave it a nice egg wash and cut some slits on the top, mostly for decoration but also to let any heat out so my roll didn’t turn mushy. As I was finishing the last slit, my oven beeped to let me know it was ready.
The final step was to bake it for 40 minutes in a 350º oven.
The preparation took me under 10 minutes to put together. Pie roll in under an hour! The final result was a success.
Let the good pies roll! 😉
