Easy pie decorating using ready-made dough and pie cutters! Simply bake pie cut-outs and paint when cooled.  This helps the color come through more than mixing food coloring into the dough before you bake it.

Here is what I used:

  1. Pie cutters: https://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/fall-pie-punches/?catalogId=66&sku=6357563&cm_ven=PLA&cm_cat=Google&cm_pla=Bakeware%20%3E%20Cookie%20Cutters%20%26%20Pancake%20Molds%20%3E%20Sets&cm_ite=6357563&gclid=CjwKCAiAh5_uBRA5EiwASW3IauwzPh2xIs9xfy4LNLELL8RBi951Z0ipuH-JQ8PY_9s696G9BuuNRRoCK3QQAvD_BwE

  3. Natural food colors
  4. Paintbrushes
  5. Small bowls for colors
  6. A pie!


  1. Thaw pie crust – this can take 3-5 hours
  2. Roll out crust
  3. Use pie cutters to cut out shapes and arrange on parchment-lined paper
  4. Brush with heavy whipping cream or egg wash and put in fridge
  5. Pre-heat oven to 400F
  6. Put cut-outs in the oven for about 11-12 minutes until slightly brown. Let cool
  7. Put a few drops of color in each bowl and use a separate brush for each color
  8. Paint away!
  9. Once dried, top on pie and enjoy
