Cherry Pie Pops How-To

Bring the fun of fair food-on-a-stick home with these biteable pops. MORE+ LESS-

All I can say is when I made these Cherry Pie Pops they didn’t last very long. The kids and their friends almost ate them all up before I had a chance to send some over to my neighbors. My daughter smelled the pies cooking when she got home from school and immediately wanted to know what I was baking. When I told her they were cherry she said, “I don’t like cherry” I told her to just try one. Well, needless to say, she is a cherry pie fan now. She ate 3 of them before I they even had a chance to cool completely. 

I think the best thing about these pie pops is that you get all the yummy taste of pie without having a giant piece. They are perfect for packing in a lunch box too. I used a baggie and some twist ties to cover them and packed one in the kid’s lunch bags. 

If you want to try making these at home just pick up some Pillsbury® refrigerated piecrusts, a can of pie filling and some lollipop sticks. Then it’s as easy as cutting out the little circles, filling and baking. I used a 3-inch dessert glass to cut my circles but you can use a cookie cutter too.

Once I cut my circles, I lightly press the stick in the center of the dough, add my filling, and then top with another circle of dough pressing all around to seal using another lollipop stick.

I also brushed them with an egg wash and a sprinkle of sugar before I baked them. This gives them a nice golden brown color. After they bake and cool you can watch them disappear.
