Take-out Tuesday, Bursting Berries

Two for one Tuesday!

These recipes are so embarrassing unbelievably easy

They are super super shortcut versions of summer favorites, Strawberry Pie and Berry Cobbler

They deliver big berry flavor with very little effort, so they are perfect for when you’re exhausted  the cook’s day off

Strawberry Pie Sticks, 2 ingredients and a pastry wheel!

Slow Cooker Berry Cobbler, 3 ingredients and a slow cooker!

For the pie sticks, simply roll out raw pie dough crust, cut it in half and spread with filling {you might have some leftover}, then top, crimp outer edges, and cut into sticks with a fluted pastry wheel

The secret to making the Strawberry Pie Sticks is not to spread them out for baking

Leaving them close together helps keep the filling from spreading too much, so you don’t have to crimp the inside edges before baking

Please please use parchment paper!

These are a big hit with little hands

The cobbler is just as easy, place pie filling in bottom of slowcooker, cover with cake mix, and drizzle with melted butter

The magic happens in just 3-4 hours!

Here are the recipes

Strawberry Pie Sticks

Cook Time 35 minutes
Course Dessert
Cuisine American


  • 1 raw refrigerated pie dough round
  • 1 can strawberry pie filling
  • 1 egg beaten, optional


  • Roll dough out to increase diameter about 1 inch on a piece of parchment paper. Cut dough in half. Spread an even layer of pie filling over half dough leaving 1/4″ around edge. You might have a little filling leftover.
  • Top with remaining dough half and crimp edges with fork to seal. Transfer paper to baking sheet.
  • Cut dough with a fluted pastry cutter into sticks, but leave the sticks together in the original formation. Brush dough with egg wash if desired.
  • Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes or until dough is golden. Transfer paper to counter and let cool. Store sticks covered at room temperature.
