Celebrate Pi Day with These Delicious Campfire Pies

TAYLOR'D Overland |

What better way to celebrate the mathematical constant π than by indulging in a variety of campfire pies under the starry night sky? Whether you're a seasoned camper or new to outdoor cooking, these delicious pie recipes are sure to make your Pi Day celebration unforgettable.

Classic Campfire Apple Pie

Nothing beats the comforting aroma of a classic apple pie baking over an open flame. To make this campfire favorite, start by preparing a simple pie crust using flour, butter, and a pinch of salt. Fill the crust with a mixture of sliced apples, cinnamon, sugar, and a squeeze of lemon juice. Seal the pie with another layer of crust, wrap it securely in aluminum foil, and place it in the coals of your campfire. After about 30-40 minutes, unwrap your pie and enjoy a slice of warm, gooey goodness.

Campfire Cherry Hand Pies

For a portable and mess-free dessert option, try making campfire cherry hand pies. Start by rolling out pre-made pie dough and cutting it into small circles. Spoon a dollop of cherry pie filling onto each circle, fold it in half, and crimp the edges with a fork to seal. Place the hand pies on a greased cast-iron griddle and cook them over the campfire until golden brown on both sides. These individual-sized pies are perfect for sharing with friends around the fire.

S'mores Pie

Put a unique twist on the traditional s'mores by turning them into a delicious campfire pie. Begin by lining a cast-iron skillet with a layer of graham cracker crumbs mixed with melted butter. Next, spread a generous amount of chocolate chips and mini marshmallows over the crust. Cover the skillet with aluminum foil and place it over the campfire until the chocolate is melted and the marshmallows are golden brown. Serve with extra graham crackers for dipping and enjoy the ultimate campfire treat.

Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler

Indulge in the flavors of summer with a mouthwatering Dutch oven peach cobbler. Begin by slicing fresh peaches and tossing them with sugar, cinnamon, and a splash of vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, and a pinch of salt to create the cobbler topping. Place the peach mixture in the bottom of a greased Dutch oven and spoon the cobbler topping over the top. Cover the Dutch oven with its lid and place it in the coals of your campfire for about 45-60 minutes, or until the cobbler is bubbling and golden brown.
