Easter Basket Pie Crust Decoration

I'm putting all my eggs in one basket:@) These eggs were cut with a plunger cookie cutter from Walmart (set of 4 for $2.88, there's a chick, bunny and butterfly too) and they're a fun and colorful addition to this Easter Basket Pie. It seems the Easter theme here at Pig In Mud this year is big-bright-bold colors! Note to self: A little colored sugar goes a long way...
I made a good Pineapple Pie-recipe HERE, it lays nice and smooth, it's easier to decorate the top crust that way.
Bonus-a 20 oz can of pineapple is usually on sale for under a dollar.
Pin It
Standard basket weave for the bottom, I just kept the widths random and twisted the rim of the basket and handle.
Sprinkle the eggs with colored sugar before placing them on the pie.
It's best to make at least one extra crust whenever playing with these decorated pies.
Why not fill a basket with something other than candy this Easter...

  9. You make the prettiest pies in the world, Lynn, and I love how you like to play with your food. Oh how I'd love a slice of your pineapple pie. It's almost too pretty to slice, but I'd have to dig in, because pie is a favorite of mine.
