Candy is dandy but if you want to be a real sweetheart this Valentines Day, say “pie love you” with these cute sweetie-pie pops. Your special someone will be blown away by pie on a stick!
First gather all your materials. You’ll need ready made pie dough, flour, 1 heart shaped cookie cutter, strawberry jam, lollipop sticks (easily purchased from your local craft store), egg wash, a pastry brush, a fork, and some turbinado sugar.
Roll out your pie dough on a floured work surface and punch out an even number of hearts. You can rework the leftover scraps after the first round then reroll, and cut out more hearts from the scraps.
Evenly space half the hearts on a parchment lined sheet tray and add just about 2 teaspoons of jam to the center. You don’t want to overfill or the jam will escape during baking.
Place the lollipop sticks on the hearts with about ½ inch of the stick pointing towards the center. Cover with another heart cut out.
Use the tines of a fork to seal the edges.
Brush the tops of the hearts with an egg wash (we used 2 beaten eggs with 1 tablespoon of water) and sprinkle lightly with turbinado sugar for some extra sweetness, crunch, and shine. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
Pie pops are a great project to make with kids! They adore punching out the hearts and filling them with jam.
Happy Valentines Day!
