Pie pops? Yes pie. Why not?

Most of us are familiar with cake pops; yummy cake and icing combined on a stick.  A pie pop is a perfect amount of buttery flakey crust and a sweet filing inside.  Personally, we have no problem eating several of these at a time, however, the idea is a small bite of a sweet treat. Great for a party, get together, shower, kids party-you get the idea.  These are not on our menu but introduced as an experiment when it was our turn to bring dessert.  Apparently, they were a hit because we have been whipping these up for our clients ever since.

These  are peach-melba pie pops, delicious peaches with a touch of raspberry jam in the filling. You can make these with any type of fruit filling.   

Some tips for making pie pops:

  • Use your regular pie crust, roll out and cut into 2 1/2 inch circles. You should get about 14 pie pops per single pie crust recipe.
  • Place the stick (can be bought at a bakery supply store) up high into the circle.
  • Make sure your fruit is cut into much smaller pieces than normal.
  • Place a tsp of filling in the center.
  • Use a little egg wash to seal the two circles together, crimp all the way around.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about 17 mins.
  • Let cool before removing from pan.
  • Ice if necessary.
  • Eat! 🙂
We hope you give these a try.
Sweet treats to you,
