Everybody loves pies. Whether sweet or savory, they are considered a filling comfort food by many. They’re great for any occasion and can be enjoyed indoors or outdoors. If you plan to make one over your bonfire at camp, go for easy to do but delicious recipes.

These 3 campfire pie recipes are a must-try for your next camping adventure!

Mini Campfire Cherry Pies

What you need:

  • 1 package pre-made pie crust (2 pie crusts per package)
  • 1 small can cherry pie filling
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • Vegetable oil

Roll out the pie crust and using a drinking glass, cut out circles (about 2-3 inches wide). Gather the remaining crust, roll out again and cut out more circles, as many as desired. Place a circle on a plate, place a tablespoon of the cherry pie filling and top with another crust circle. Press the edges down together using the tines of the fork to seal the mini pie.

Repeat with remaining ingredients. Heat 2 inches of vegetable oil on a cast iron pan over hot campfire coals. When ready, cook 1-3 pies (depending on the size of your pan) at a time until each side is browned. Remove from heat and drain on paper towels. When all are cooked, dredge the pies in white sugar before serving.

Apple and Raisin Pie

What you need:

  • 2 slices white or wheat bread
  • 3 tablespoons apple pie filling
  • 1 tablespoon raisins
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened

Spread the butter evenly on one side of each bread slice. Place a slice, butter side down, into an oiled toaster. Spread with apple pie filling, sprinkle with raisins and top with the other bread slice, butter side up.

Close the toaster and cook over a hot campfire, turning occasionally, for 4-5 minutes, or until pie is golden brown.

Yummy S’mores Pie

What you need:

  • 8 slices cinnamon swirl bread
  • 4 graham cracker squares, crushed into large pieces
  • 1 cup mini campfire marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

In a greased pie iron, place a slice of cinnamon swirl bread and sprinkle with graham cracker pieces, marshmallows and chocolate chips (divide ingredients among 4 pies). Top with another cinnamon bread slice and close the pie iron.

Remove excess bread coming out of the pie iron. Cook over campfire for 1 minute per side. Place on a plate and serve.

These delicious campfire pie recipes will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth!
