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.
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! 🙂
