How to Decorate a Captain Marvel Pie

What You Need

  • Pre-made refrigerated pie crust, two rolls
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • Cinnamon
  • Pastry brush
  • Captain Marvel template — DOWNLOAD
  • 1 piece of card stock paper
  • X-acto knife
  • Pie filling – your choice!

First, create the Captain Marvel stencil to use to decorate the top of your pie. Download and print the Captain Marvel file (see list above) at approx. 7 inches wide (for a 9 inch pie) on a piece of card stock paper. Next, use your X-acto knife to carefully cut out the inner star. Set aside.

Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees.

Roll out one of your refrigerated pie crusts on a clean surface. Take your pie pan and place it upside down on your dough. Trace the outline of the pie pan with a butter knife to cut away the excess dough, leaving you with a circle the same diameter as your pie dish. This will be used for the top of your pie. Carefully transfer the piece of dough to a baking sheet. Center your stencil on top of the piece of dough. Using a pastry brush, brush beaten egg white over the open part of the stencil. Next, sprinkle cinnamon on top of the brushed egg white. Carefully raise the stencil off of the dough, being careful not to disturb the excess cinnamon on top of the stencil, and discard. If the edges of your Captain Marvel design are not as clean as you’d like, use a butter knife to straighten the edge of the cinnamon. Bake the top of your pie for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown.

While the top of your pie cools, it’s time to prep the bottom of your pie. Fill your pie pan with the remaining pie crust and remove any excess dough from the edges. The pie filling is up to you. (I went with classic apple.) Bake the bottom of your pie according to whatever recipe you’re following. Once your pie is done baking, remove it from the oven and quickly place the decorated crust piece on top of the pie. By placing it on top of the hot pie, the heat and juices from the pie will help to seal the top piece to the bottom.

Let cool and enjoy with a scoop of your favorite ice cream.

      I’ll be honest, I think the extra layer of cinnamon totally improves the taste of the apple pie! And yes, it was so easy! I am going to have to start using this technique to decorate my pies more often. The countdown is on for Captain Marvel in March! CANNOT WAIT!!!

      Yay! This would be an awesome treat to take to work and even adapt for other events, like Star Wars day! I love taking geeky recipes into my office and leaving them in the kitchen. The non-geeks eat them and enjoy them, but for the geeks, it’s like a secret code that only they get. haha!

    Your pie turned out so well and thanks for the tips! I tried doing something similar with powdered sugar, but it didn’t turn out nearly as well. Next time I’ll use these directions.

      I’ve had major mishaps with powdered sugar! I’d definitely say that the egg white cover helped the cinnamon to stay in place!

    This is so fun and doesn’t look too challenging! I may have to re-create it (I did your Death Star pie last year!)

      I remember your Death Star pie! I definitely think this should be the next one you make, and bonus it’s super easy to do!

      You should! And no matter what stencil you use, it’s a great technique to jazz up any pie!
