Plantain pies Christmas tree looks just like cupcakes.
As many of you may know, plantains are one of my favorite foods. I’m very lucky that I currently live in an area where there’s endless supply of plantains at very reasonable prices. Access and affordability allow me to continue to satisfy all my plantain cravings.
Last month, I shared with you a fried plantain turkey. Check out photos here. Today, I want to share with you this lovely plantain pies Christmas tree. It’s festive, super easy to make and delicious.
It’s very similar to the plantain pie that I created (See recipe here), but instead of one entire pie, this one offers individual pies so that family and friends can have their very own.
Here’s how I created it
Plantain pies Christmas tree
- cupcake baking pans
- cupcake liners
- Pizza Cutter
- Deep frying pan
- cutting board
- 15 plantains sliced diagonally
- 4 cups vegetable oil
- 1 stick butter
- ¾ cups sugar
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 4 packages pie dough crust
- Place sliced plantains into hot oil to fry. Don't over fry like I did this time around.
- Place fry plantains next to a cutting board
- In a bowl mix melted butter, cinnamon, and sugar
- Cut pie crust dough into 2 inch sections
- Add butter/cinnamon/sugar mixture to dough with a brush
- Add plantains to dough on half of the dough
- Cover the plantains with the other half of the dough
- Roll plantains and dough and place them in cupcake liner
- Complete this process until you have 24
- Use the rest of the butter mixture and generously brush over plantain
- Tent cover so it doesn't burn and place in the oven at 300°
- Uncover for a few minutes and let it brown
- Remove from the oven and create your tree
