Pie On A Stick

I read about this last week in Family Fun magazine and thought it sounded like a great idea! We haven't tried it yet but hope to soon (though probably with raw sugar). The article can be found on p. 92 of the October 2010 issue.

Pie on a Stick

  • Mix 1/2 c. sugar (or raw sugar) and 1 tsp. cinnamon in a wide-mouth container. (It seems to me that a wide-mouth glass jar would be perfect for this).
  • By the campfire, skewer a tart, firm unpeeled apple on a sharpened stick.
  • Slowly rotate the apples close to the hot embers until the skins blacken and begin to split. Remove the skins with a fork.
  • Roll the still-skewered apples in the cinnamon sugar until well coated.
  • Can either be slid onto a paper plate or eaten right off the stick!
It's much healthier than s'mores--and probably quite a bit less messy too.

I love that we seem to read the same magazines!! This is a great idea, we have a firepit in the back yard and we'll be trying it soon!
