Even though the State Fair is seasonal and comes around once a year, my love for State Fair food is never-ending. And when I say never ending, I literally mean.. it. never. ends. UGH.
three times once a day, a new semi-horrifying frankenfood pops into my head, and off to the kitchen I go to get it out of there, and onto here..you’re welcome :/ lol.
Which brings us right here, together, at this moment.. for this incredibly easy, super yummy, ‘state-fair-inspired-sticky-stick-food’.
At first glance, you’d think that these are not simple to make, that they’re going to take up hours of your day, and result in a huge mess.. but if you’ve ever been here before, you know that’s not how things are done around here. 😉
So, holding true to what I do best.. you knowww..(work as little as possible for the biggest reward) .. these beauties are a 2 ingredient, and a 10 minute investment of your time and sanity.. to impress and WOW anyone who is lucky enough to be around when you decide to share them.
~That is, IF you can bring yourself to share them.
What you’ll need for 12-14 apple pie corn dogs:
one frozen apple pie.. semi-thawed. (store bought really does work best for this, however.. feel free to prepare & freeze your own pie if you’d like)
2 containers of Pillsbury crescent sheet dough. (either seamless or sealed by you)
oil for frying.. I used Canola
powdered sugar, caramel sauce, and/or ice cream for serving.
Cut your slightly thawed pie into approx. 3″x2″ pieces.. OR into whatever size you’d like your corn dogs to be…
**SIDE NOTE: The frozen pie crust will most likely come off as you cut your pie into pieces. THAT’S A GOOD THING.. take it off it it doesn’t come off on its own, you won’t want it inside your corn dogs. ..give your real dog a little treat.. mine loved it.
And yes, ..please, I know dogs shouldn’t eat pie crust, they can get diabetes and die, give your dogs treats at your own discretion. 😉
Roll out your dough and cut it into pieces, making sure that each one is large enough to generously wrap around each piece of apple pie.
Wrap them up, sealing the dough around VERY well..
Fry each one, either with the stick (if your pot is large enough)..or without the stick, as I had to do.
..fry until evenly golden all the way around…
Let them cool slightly, and gently insert your sticks…
Serve them warm with anything you’d typically like on your apple pie…
AND DIG IN! ~Enjoy! 🙂
