To make easy pies in your pie iron over the campfire, you’ll need a few ingredients:
Making your pie iron pies is really easy! Start by spraying both sides of the inside of your pie iron so that the bread doesn’t stick. Since I used olive oil spray I also sprayed the side of the bread that faces the pie iron to help it brown. You could also use butter on it instead.
Then let each child spread the strawberry pie filling over the slice of bread.
Then sprinkle the pie filling with some cinnamon sugar (or just cinnamon). Add the other piece of bread on top and close the pie iron and latch it.
Place pie irons in the hot coals and cook for 1-2 minutes and then flip and cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Time will vary depending on how hot your coals/fire is. Check for doneness and if needed, cook a little longer.
Then cut in half diagonally and enjoy! Be careful as they will be hot! Allow them to cool a little first.
Pie iron pies are a classic dessert that every kid should make! If you love campfire cooking with kids then you’ll also love these campfire donuts! So yummy!
