Pie Pops!

Today is International Pi day! So I made some Pie Pops for dessert. I think they came out super cute!

I just used simple store bought pie crust and canned cherry pie fruit filling. The next time I make them I will probably use homemade pie crust and filling.


Pie crust - store bought or homemade

Fruit filing - store bought or homemade

Flour for rolling out the pie dough

Egg white and pastry brush

Lollipop sticks


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, Roll out the pie dough and cut out 2 1/2 inch circles. Even though I used store bought pie crust - I still rolled it out a little so that everything was the same thickness.

Place the circles on the baking sheet.

Press a lollipop stick onto the dough circle and cover with your favorite fruit filing. I used cherry filling.

Cover the cherry dough circle with another dough circle and crimp the edges using a small piece of lollipop stick. I just broke a lollipop stick in half. Then using a pastry brush - light brush the top of each pie pop with the egg white and bake for approximately 12 minutes.

So easy and such a fun presentation. You could also omit the lollipop sticks and simply make little pies.

When they come out of the oven they should be golden brown. Wait a few minutes before you take them off the pan.

Quick tip: Just put a tablespoon of filling - if you use too much filling - it is hard to crimp the edges.

Happy International Pi Day!
