How To: Sweetie Pie Pops

By The PD Web Team

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!

 

Step 1

 Step 1:  First, gather all your materials. You’ll need ready-made pie dough, flour, a 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 or raw sugar.

 

Step 2

 Step 2:  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.

 

Step 3

 Step 3:  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.

 

 

Step 4

 Step 4:  Place the lollipop sticks on the hearts with about ½ inch of the stick pointing towards the center. Cover with another heart cutout.

 

 

Step 5

 Step 5:  Use the tines of a fork to seal the edges.

 

 

 

Step 6

 Step 6:  Brush the tops of the hearts with an egg wash (we used 2 beaten eggs with 1 tablespoon of water).

 

 

Step 7

 Step 7:  Sprinkle the pie pops lightly with turbinado sugar for some extra sweetness, crunch, and shine.

 

 

Step 8

 Step 8:  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!
