Pie Pops, Pie on a Stick

Buoyed by the success of the 3-D sheep cookies, I moved down my list of "have to try, even if it looks impossible" recipes from my favorites list. We decided to take on the Pie Pops from Luxirare. I've noticed half the Web drooling over them, but not too many people actually trying them (of course, now that I go to post this, I see that Bakerella beat us to the stick, and posted her versions yesterday!).

Anyway, the overall process is pretty simple.

Roll out pie dough, and cut it into 2 inch (or so) circles. We used a drinking glass to cut the dough. Also, we didn't roll our dough very thin (a constant problem of mine, with pies). You want to think thin with this one.

Place the dough circles on a cookie sheet, and add pie filling, and Popsicle sticks (we didn't have sucker sticks on hand).

Cover the filled circles with another circle of dough, and seal by pressing around the edges with the edge of another Popsicle stick (you could probably use a fork instead).

Brush the circles with egg white, and sprinkle with sugar. Then, turn them over, and repeat the sealing, brushing, and sprinkling on the other side too.

Bake at 425 for about 12 minutes, or until they look a little golden.

Despite our dough being a bit thick, these little cuties didn't last long. Even my husband, who is not usually a big fan of pie, had to have one. Not to mention the fact, that this project turned out to be pretty kid friendly, and SO much easier than pie in a jar!

It's great to be a homeschooler.
