Recipe: Pie Pops
I saw these on Pinterest the other day, and I knew I had to make my own version to give to Black Friday shoppers at Kiss the Cook. They turned out so cute! I based my recipe on this one, but used my home canned apple pie filling.
So simple - take pie crust - I used store bought, but you could also use homemade (I made A Pinch and a Splash's Tangy Pie crust for my pies this year, and it's super easy and I think it's helped me overcome my pie crust failure!!)
All you have to do is roll your pie crust thinly (I rolled it thinner than it came from the store), and cut into circles. I used a tiny apple cutter from my linzer cookie cutter set to cut the top - not all the way through.
Put a cookie stick on top of one pie crust circle right on a parchment lined cookie sheet, pressing firmly. Put about a tablespoon of filling on top of the circle, then top with another circle (cut out if desired). Wet the edges and crimp them closed with a fork.
Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar. Bake at 375 F for ~15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool completely before taking them off the cookie sheet, or the stick might fall out!
