Frankenstein Grape Pastries

INGREDIENTS

2 Refrigerated pie crusts

½ cup Grape jelly

1 Egg

2 tbsp Water

½ cup Vanilla frosting

2 Drops green food coloring

12 Candy eyeballs

Black icing

Purple sprinkles or crushed chocolate cookies

2 RED VINES® Grape Twists cut into 12 ½-inch pieces

01. Step One

Preheat your oven to 375F degrees.

02. Step Two

Unroll the pie crusts and flatten with a rolling pin. Use a pizza cutter or a knife to square off the edges. Cut the crusts into equal rectangles. Tear away the scraps and roll the crust flat to cut more rectangles. You should end up with 12 rectangles total.

03. Step Three

Make an egg wash by whisking an egg with 2 tablespoons of water in a small bowl.

04. Step Four

Set half of the pie crust rectangles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Add a spoonful of grape jelly to the center of the rectangles. Then brush the edges with egg wash.

05. Step Five

Brush the edges of the other six pie crust rectangles with egg wash. Lay them on top of the jelly topped pie crusts with the egg wash side facing down.

06. Step Six

Use a fork to crimp and seal the edges of the two pie crust rectangles together. Brush the top of each pastry with egg wash and prick each with a fork a few times. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the tops of the pastries are light golden and slightly crisp. Transfer the pastries to a cooling rack.

07. Step Seven

Scoop the vanilla frosting into a bowl and stir in a few drops of green food coloring. When the pastries are cool, spread the top of each with the green frosting. Add two candy eyeballs to each pastry. Draw on the eyebrows and mouth with black icing and coat the top half inch of each pastry with purple sprinkles or crushed chocolate cookies.

08. Step Eight

Place two Red Vines Grape Twist pieces on either side of the pastry just below the mouth. Serve immediately.
