Photos & Recipe by Jenn Fujikawa (@justjenn)

Tools + Ingredients

You’ll Need:

1 9-inch pie plate

1 egg white

2 cans cherry pie filling

1 clean x-acto knife

Pie Crust Ingredients:

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into cubes

4 – 6 tablespoons ice water


-In a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar and salt. With a pastry cutter, cut in the cold butter until crumbly. Add the water by the tablespoon until the dough comes together.
-Divide the dough into two. Roll out one half of the dough onto a floured surface, large enough to cover the pie plate. Lift the dough circle over the plate and lightly press into the bottom.
-Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
-Brush the piecrust with egg white and pour in the two cans of pie filling.
-Roll out the second half of the pie dough onto a floured surface. With the clean x-acto knife, cut out Ultron’s face.
-Lay the face over the cherry pie filling and brush with egg white.
-Bake for 40-45 minutes until golden brown. Let cool.
-With the remaining dough scraps, cut out the two side pieces. Place on a baking sheet lined with a silpat or parchment and brush with egg white. Bake for 5 minutes or until just browned, and let cool on a wire rack.
-Once the pie is cool, wedge the two pieces next to the side of the head to serve.
