When I saw this idea over at Bakerella I was anxious to try it. I love the idea of putting food on a stick, somehow it just makes it more fun and really cute. These are really easy to make and you can use your favorite pie filling, even one from a can to make it really simple. I made a pie filling that originally comes from a Pillsbury recipe that you can find here. However I cut the recipe down so there isn't as much filling, but I still had some extra leftover. You can find the filling recipe I used below.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, and prepare your pie filling.
I used the box of pre-made Pillsbury pie crust. Roll the pie crust out on a floured surface and use a cookie cutter to cut out your desired shape. I was able to make 19 pie pops from both 9 inch pie crusts that come in the box. However you will have scraps that you can roll back out to cut out more circles if you want to make more then that.
|Place the circles on a cookie sheet leaving room for the sticks and gently press the sticks (find them in the baking isle of a craft store) into the dough.|
|Now spoon about 1 Tablespoon or less of the pie filling onto the center of the circles.|
