Sweet Pie Chips & Berry Compote Dip

At any party I can be found right next to the chips and salsa, unless of course the bowl is dry. Yup, thats me! I always have one eye on the dip, and another on the chips. But don't worry I'm not a double dipper. That's a total party foul. 


But this recipe keeps me standing by the dips all the way through dessert, these pie chips and berry compote make me even weaker than my Gooey Slow Cooker Nacho Cheese Sauce.

These pie chips are so easy to make. They are basically pastry cut into fun shapes, brushed with butter, topped with sugar and baked until they are the perfect golden brown. While homemade are always my favorite, sometimes even I don't have enough time to whip up some fresh dough. Not to worry, I always keep a spare box of read made pastry in the fridge and some frozen berries on hand for when I have a hankering to whip these guys up!

Making these "chips" is easy as pie… see what I did there? But it's so much easier than pie, because you can have a whole batch in 10 minutes flat. I love to save the extra compote (which stays fresh in the fridge for up to a week) and add it to juice, booze, ice cream, freeze it into ice cubes, make ice cream with it, or simply eat it with a spoon, the possibilities are endless!

Ingredients

For the Pie Chips:

  • Pastry dough (pre-made pie crust, or homemade)
  • Butter
  • Sugar

For the Compote:

  • Orange juice
  • Granulated sugar
  • Fresh (or frozen) mixed berries
Directions

To make the pie chips, preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Cut your pastry dough or pie crust into desired shapes. I used a fun cookie cutter to get exact shapes, but you can use a pizza cutter or traditional knife.

Brush the crust shapes lightly with butter, and place in an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet in the oven for about 10-12 minutes (or until they turn golden brown).

To make the compote, simmer a splash of orange juice, a sprinkle of white granulated sugar and fresh or frozen berries over the stove until they gently bubble and thicken. Add more juice to thin it out, add more sugar to sweeten it (even add Brandy if you are feeling especially festive). For a more step-by-step recipe, watch me make a Meyer Lemon Compote here.
