Your eyes are not deceiving you, that is pie on a stick. I’d seen pictures of pie pops floating around the web and knew it was something I had to try. They were surprisingly easy to make. Especially because I cheated and used pre-made pie crust and fillings. But the beauty of these is you can literally fill them with anything. Chocolate, nuts, cherries, apples, pumpkin…the list goes on.
First, take the pre-made pie crust and roll it out a bit thinner. Make sure to use flour on the top and bottom to keep it from sticking. Then cut out your pie shapes.
Put the cut out pie crust onto your tray with a lollipop stick. Fill with your desired filling. I chose cherry.
Then put another piece of pie crust on top, making a pie sandwich. Maybe I would have eaten my sandwiches more as a kid if my mom made them out of pie. Just a thought.
I sealed the pie sandwiches by pressing around the edges with an extra lollipop stick. I’ve decided that next time I make these I’ll just use a fork, but really either way is fine. Brush egg whites on the tops and pop them in the oven at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes (or until they’re golden brown).
Leave them on the tray to cool so that the stick can settle. I might even try these next time without the stick. I mean, a mini pie sandwich is a delightful snack regardless if it’s on a stick or not, right?
These really were ridiculously easy to make. And quite a crowd pleaser as well. I already went out and bought a couple Christmas shaped cookie cutters so I can make a more seasonal variety. Can’t you just imagine your relatives singing your praises if you brought these to Thanksgiving dinner?
