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
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.
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!
