Who can resist a little pie on a stick? Mmmhmm. These little guys are some of the easiest, prettiest gifts/treats you can make. I had a blast creating heart-shaped Pie Pops this year in lieu of fancy Valentine gifts, and will most definitely be making them again in the near future.
Granted, they take a little extra time (think cutting out shapes + carefully laying and pressing), but everyone loves them as gifts, and they would be amazing wedding or party favors. You can fill them with everything from strawberry jam [pictured here] to applesauce and chocolate pudding--or any other pie filling you can think of.
Recipe, anyone? :]
BLUEBERRY PIE POPS
2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts [everyone should have a good recipe--if not, look one up!]
Enjoy, friends. Yes, I made mine with wooden shish-kabob sticks (only because I didn't have plastic ones on hand) but I would not reccomend doing this. For one, you CANNOT put wood in the oven, so I had to make holes in my pies and stick them in later. This provided for somewhat loose pie pops with their sticks almost slipping out, which wasn't too fun, but I made the best of it.
Just for future reference. I like it when people can learn from my mistakes. :]
