I love recipes that are super simple to take and create whenever we are camping. These kinds of recipes help to keep the mess and preparation at home. This Cherry Pie is no different.
This pie recipe uses only three ingredients that you can quickly find and purchase at your local grocery store. Ingredients that the kids are sure to love, especially when they are combined and cooked over the campfire!
Tips for cooking with a camp cooker:
- When cooking with a camp cooker, begin by applying non stick cooking spray or oil to the inside of both cooking plates. This step is important so that your delicious meal doesn’t stick to the plates and burn.
- Place your recipe ingredients into the cooker before closing and latching it.
- Cook the recipe over an open fire. We recommend placing the cooker over the fire for two minutes before unlatching, checking for doneness and flipping the cooker over to cook the other side.
- Use caution when handling both the metal latch and handles as they can become hot while cooking.
How to make camp cooker cherry pie:
- Plan to purchase and pack cherry pie filling, Pillsbury flaky rolls and whipping cream on your camping trip.
2. Spray the inside of the camp cooker with non stick cooking spray. Open the tin of rolls, stretch and press a roll onto both sides of the iron.
3. Fill the dough with about 2 tablespoons of pie filling. Top with the second roll and close and latch the iron.
4. Cook over the fire for approximately 5 minutes per side.
5. Unlatch and check the pie for doneness frequently so that it does not burn. The pie is done when the dough is golden on the outside.
6. Top with whipping cream and serve.
We always have camp cookers packed in the travel trailer for camping. They are such a handy tool for making quick meals, snacks and desserts. We’ve even pulled them out to use at home on the deck with our propane fire pit. The kids love using pie irons for dessert at home too!
