Del Monte Fruit Cups are good as they are, but I decided to place them in a delicious allergy friendly flaky pie crust. I was glad that the simple ingredients in in the fruit cups makes it a treat my son can enjoy even with multiple food allergies. My son helped me bake the pie crusts by measuring, mixing, and blending.
To make the allergy friendly pie crusts you will need:
2 cups of the allergy friendly flour mix- I use Authentic Foods-Classic Blend.
3 tablespoons of potato starch
2 tablespoons of confectionery sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon of Xantham gum
A pinch of salt
1 1/4 of vegetable shortening
4 1/2 teaspoon of egg replacer mixed with 6 tablespoon of hemp milk. (dairy free milk of your choice)
1 tablespoon of granulated sugar to sprinkle over crust in the end
Whisk in the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
Blend the shortening, then add the liquid ingredients.
Mold into the tray, I used a mini aluminum pie trays. Would work just as good with tart trays.
Any extra dough left, flatten and cut out shapes to top the fruits with.
Bake about 25 minutes at 350, in a preheated oven. Let cool and you're half way to a delicious pie cup of fruits!
Pour in the Del Monte fruits from the fruit cups to the pie cup, and enjoy as is!
Or put a scoop of your favorite ice cream or whipped cream to enjoy! I put a tiny half a scoop of coconut dairy free ice cream.
