Easy as Pie

Pie Pops

I know. Genius, right. Perfectly-portioned, tiny pies … and on lollipop sticks, too. I can’t take the credit for this idea, although I would love to. The site Luxirare is responsible for this attack of cuteness. A friend at work sent the link to me last week and, the moment I saw them, I knew I would have to try them out. I just love to make things like this that are easy and say “Hi’ I’m the cutest thing on earth… now eat me.” I originally thought I would make some during the holidays and give them away as gifts, but they have been invading my thoughts all week. So this weekend they had to be made in an attempt to purge them from my mind.

Pie Pop

They really are easy. And if you have a little one around, you don’t even have to lift a finger. They can do all the work and tell you how to make them, too.

The following commentary is from my sweet “little miss bakerella.” She talked and I typed. So here goes… instructions in italics from an eight year old.

I’m getting ready to show you how to make your very own pie pops. They’re not made from candy, but they’re made out of dough. It’s gonna be a baketastic time!

Sprinkling

Sprinkle a pinch of flour onto the dough.

Dough

Now we flop it onto the other side and do the cookie cutters.

ME: Dusting with a little bit of flour on both sides will make the dough easier to work with and move around.

Cutouts

Now we do the first cookie cutter. It feels great to do the first one.
There’s a lot more to be done, but still, it’s worth it.

Pie Dough

I’m trying to get close to the other hearts because it will give us more space for the cookie cutters.

ME: If you’re careful you can get enough for 8-9 pie pops from a 9-inch pie crust.

Cutting

It’s time for the circles. Remember, I’m doing the same thing except it will be easier.

ME: The circle shapes are easier to assemble than the heart shapes because they give you more room in the center for the filling.

Circle cutouts

This is gonna be all circles here.

Scraps

Time to get off the scraps. We don’t want those Nuh-uh! You can use the scraps for a different piece of dough.

ME: What she means is… you can save the dough scraps. Roll flat and re-use.

Sticks

Now it’s time for pressing down the lollipop sticks.

Pie filling

Now, get only one cherry and a little bit of juice. Put it right in the center or it will squeeze out way too much.

ME: pie filling = juice :)

Pressing

Ummm… as I said before, don’t put too much juice or it will squeeze out because you got to press down or it won’t bake very good in the oven.

ME: We used rolled pie crusts and canned cherry pie filling to play with these. Easy and fun for both of us.

Pie Pops, pre-baked

It’s time for sealing it. What you do is, you break a lollipop stick into a small piece and you press it down all around it. (But not too hard.)

ME: Using a short piece of lollipop stick helps you not to mess up the neighboring pie pops when you seal the two pieces of dough together.

Egg whites

Now you take a baking brush and you crack an egg. Don’t put the egg yolk in. Put the egg whites in a little bowl. Get the brush and put some of the egg whites on it. Now brush it onto the front of the dough.

ME: Brush the tops of the pies with egg whites.

Pecan pie filling

Now we got some pistachios and we put it onto the dough, instead of cherry. But I must say, it was mighty tasty.

ME: Ha! Guess you can tell she doesn’t eat too many pecans or … pistachios either for that matter. We did make a few pie pops using a pecan pie filling that I whipped together, but I still need to finesse the ingredients on that one before I post a recipe.

The pops baked in the oven on 375 for about 12-15 minutes or until the tops started to brown. Remove, cool and enjoy!

Pie Bite

I thought I would love these more than I did. But… (and I can’t believe I’m saying these words) … They needed more fruit! A little too much pastry to pie filling for me. But still good, still fun to do and still super-cute!

I heart pie pops

    SALUTES

  6. ooo looks delicious! i love pie crust so this would be a perfect project for me!

  7. I have to tell you I love your site, so many wonderful ideas to borrow. I am going to borrow this one for my "Great American Bake Sale" in Oct. They are adorable, thanks so much for sharing.

  8. What a fabulous idea. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Dear Ms Bakerella – Would you be able to share how you gt your beautiful, solid colour backgrounds pretty please? I love your baking, I love your styling, I love your photography, your blog makes me smile:) Vanessa x

  10. I love your site, I tell everyone I know about it! It gets me in lots of calorie trouble, but they are all worth it! I made these today, and I tried all the suggestions (rolling the dough really thin, and adding an additional cherry). I also tossed some sugar on top of the egg wash, which helped sweeten the dough. Next time-I'll work a little more on beauty factor. Thanks so much for sharing!

  11. I made these yesterday with a caramel apple filling and they were delicious!

  12. Bakerella, it's people like you that make people like me get really excited about "the little things" I've just discovered your blog and I LOVE IT, you do fantastic work, thanks for sharing, I look forward to making some of your creations.

  13. Those are ADORABLE!!! Love the photo's they just made my mouth water. I wanted to take a bite out of the screen. Yuuum!

  14. That is the coolest thing I have ever seen! I will try this one for sure.

  15. That is darling!! L.O.V.E it!!

  16. toots – awesome job!

    michelle – go for soemthing easy like plain chocolate morsels.

    MsSpy – Yay – glad you had fun.

    Lindsey – yes, you can. The chocolate and yellow might turn a little borwn when combined though.

    Sarah S – make sure you press the dough around the base of the stick and don't hold them upright until they have cooled for a few minutes.

    Emma – Yes, but I think they might be too heavy for the sticks then.

    Jess – thanks for thinking of me.

  17. Those are the cutest things I have ever seen! I must make some! And the commentary was perfect, too! I love baking with little kids, its so fun!

  18. My best friend introduced me to your blog last week. Today all I've donei s read through it, no seriously, that's ALL I've done, lol, well that & drool over all of your yummy photos!!

    I can't wait to try out these pie pops, they are way to cute!! (Well ok, I can't wait to try everything out actually!!)

    So anyway, I see that you're in GA? I'm in Savannah…

    Got down to your post about Paula & just thought I'd let you know that I'll try to get you a signed copy of one of her cookbooks. She's my Uncle Ned's first cousin & they have dinner with her every month or so, so I'll do my best. (Here I am trying to get you an autograph & I myself haven't even had the chance to meet her yet, LOL) But I shall meet her one day, just everytime I get invited to dinner I am never able to go for one darned reason or another.

    Anyway, I love love LOVE your blog!! I'm so happy my friend showed it to me!! ;-)

  19. This looks fabulous! I can't wait to try these!

  20. I bet that if you used the next size up cutter for your pie "tops" you could get a bit more filling in there to even out the ratio. They look delicious and I absolutely cannot wait for your pecan pie filling recipe. My absolute favorite.

  21. Love the heart ones. Yours came out amazing, Bakerella! I was floored by them too, and am so impressed that you actually got to it and made 'em yourself! :-)

  22. These are so cute! Thanks so much for sharing. I hope you will join me at diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com for Crock Pot Wednesdays. The giveaways this weeks are really great!

  23. I think I'll try them with cinnimon and sugar inside and your ideas too! Yummy little pies!

  24. OH MY! These are genious! They look so easy and yummy. Love the little miss bakerella tutorial :)

  25. What a great idea for the holidays. Pecan Pie Pops – yuuum.

  26. These are absolutely adorable! I love to send goodies to work with my husband to share… I did your Father's Day Happy Meals and they were a total hit! I think this might have to be my next surprise for him and his co-workers. :)

  27. These looks so cute and delicious. I have to try them next time we are having a bunch of people over.

  28. they look so cute!!…
    here in mexico we eat something like that, they are called "empanadas" and we dont use the stick haha…

  29. It's seems tasteful…and the recipes are greats for children and anyone…I loved.
    I would like to invite you to visit my blog, there's a translator on the right top if you need.
    See you,
    Paula

  30. Miss Bakerella did a great job! They are super cute and they look yummy!

  31. You are truly AMAZING! I am one of your biggest fans!

  32. Hi,

    I just found your blog for the first time today and I'm hooked already. Just wanted to say I think your work is wonderful and you have such a great eye!

    I put a post on my own blog about how great your images are (http://itsnice.blogspot.com/2009/08/my-new-favourite-blog.html) so if there's anything you're not happy with or would like changing/adding just let me know.

    Thanks!
    Vicki.

  33. I stumbled upon these a few days ago and was shocked when it wasn't your website!!

    But I knew you'd get ahold of them soon enough!

    Cute as always! I hope to make them soon.

  34. omg these are sooo good…we have made a version in my houseonly not on a stick…can u put all lolipop sticks in the oven or do we need a certain type..these look delish!!! chocolate cream filling is my fav!!
    EatMyTreats.blogspot.com

  35. I made these last night with store-bought applie pie filling and then homemade strawberry jam. They turned out great, but I couldn't get them to stay on the sticks. Any suggestions?

  36. These are just way to cute! I am convinced that anything is cuter and better if it is significantly smaller than it original size.

  37. just found this site.
    i love you! i'm drooling.

  38. All of your creations are just so fun!
    I am going to attempt my first of your recipes this week. A quick question though, regarding cake balls – can you use any combination of cake mix and frosting? For example, I LOVE yellow cake and chocolate icing. Would that work? Have you experimented with mixing and matching like that?
    Thanks!

  39. that is so freaking legendary!!!!

    love it..

    each time I tell myself that she came with the most amzing idea… u surprise me with even more amazing ideas…

    way 2 go my Bakerella…

  40. Those look great! Just wanted to tell you I made a 3 1/2 hour trip with a friend this weekend to visit your favorite store… OMG The Cake Art Store is AWESOME. We were only in the store about 3 hours and spent way to much money but it was fun and I have lots of goodies to play with. Thanks for posting about it on your site!

  41. Uber-cool!
    When I make turnovers I feel the same way about too much pie crust and not enough fruit.
    …think I'll be trying these with some of our freshly made mulberry jam…

  42. These are absolutely amazing! Never in my wildest dreams would I have come up with this. Can't wait to make them with my seven year old. Great gift idea also. Keep up the wonderful work, I love you blog.

  43. First thing that popped into my mind was "Oh no she didn't!" wow. Im will have to try these oh-so-very soon!

  44. i dont know if you actually respond to your comments (you get so many i dont know how you could keep up!) but its worth a shot: these look amazing but i thought i would try it with a chocolate filling – what would you recomend? (i'm just starting out with baking really)

  45. got excited by the photos. i will surely put this on my list. looks like lollipop pie. my son will love making this.

  46. Little miss bakerella said "baketastic"!! Now THAT'S the cutest thing on earth!
    Linda

  47. Can't wait to see what you share with us next! You are a "baketastic" inspiration.

  48. What a cute idea. I love that the little ones can help!

  49. I love it when you post easy stuff! By the way, do you take requests? My daughter LOVES Elmo and I would love to do Elmo cake pops for her birthday…but of course would prefer that you work out the kinks first! Thanks so much for your tangibly delicious posts!!!

  50. Oh my these look tasty!

  51. I just love cooking with little people. A few years ago I got to cook with my son's 2nd grade class once a month. These would be a perfect classroom cooking project.

  52. Just pulled my pumpkin pie pops out of the oven. Wow, sad that your 8 year old niece did better than I! I had no problem with the rolling, the filling, the baking, but my sticks just would not stay in the pies!!! My co-workers won't even notice that there was a place for sticks – and I'll definitely be trying these again! Thanks for the awesome post!

  53. Dang it. Now I have to try these.

  54. I made these today and you're right, they need more fruit! Luckily for me I have a house full of pastry lovers so I'm in the minority on this one. I can't wait to try some with pumpkin filling.

  55. Oh my gosh! I made these a while back and posted them on my blog as "Jam Pie Squares". But mine are humble little ugly things and yours are gorgeous. I used apricot jam and strawberry jam. I think I liked the apricot better. They were easy to make and a fun snack. Yours are simply beautiful!

  56. Thanks for a great project!!! We made them this afternoon and LOVED them. We filled them with fresh homemade applesauce. Thanks for sharing with us!!!

    Here are photos of our Apple Pie Pops ;o)

  57. How cute! Have you thought about baking organically? These would be very easy to convert to all organic ingredients.

  58. Pie Pops? Really? That is just too good.

  59. Denise

    – I left a message for you on the Bakerella facebook page.

    Send me an email (in profile) and I'll try to help you out.

  60. MAYBELLINE – maybe without the sticks

    Christene – yes. yes.

    FABULOUS! – no, but there are a lot of good links the the butterscovth pie post I did a few months ago.

    Anonymous – they're paper, but for the amount of time in the oven, they will be fine.

    Anonymous – yes… glaze away

    morgana – you should start a pie craze in spain

    Sue – i think so.

    Omg Lia – click on the highlighted circles link in the story.

    Jenniffer – I don't know. A web designer programmed that for me.

    The Duchess of Wessex – just tryin to keep things simple.

    The Heizzys – YAY

    Kristen – if you don't have access to natural light , then use lowel ego lights. try them.

    Anonymous – I did, but thank you for the heads up.

    LuxiRare – thanks so much, glad you like it. Yours is pretty amazing.

    Karen S – very cute!

    JudyG – if you have to, yes, but add some shortening to make it easier to work with.

  61. Oh my gosh, what a cute story and the pie pops look yummy! Love it!

  62. OMG…what will you creative bakers come up w/next? How awesome! Will definately be trying these, w/your suggestion for more fruit, less juice. :-)

  63. Wow, how in the world do you do this?

  64. These are so creative I'm gonna try apple because it is my hubby's favorite. Your soo funny with the comments on your pictures. I find myself laughing all the time.
    Thanks for all of your step by step instructions and pictures

  65. I LOVE this idea! For Valentine's Day, I make piecrust sandwich cookies with seedless jam in the middle, I'm now wondering if that would be good on the stick…or cream cheese and jam mixed in the middle…YUM! I wonder if it would change the crust to fruit ratio because of the sweetness of the jam? HMMM… an experiment. These look great! Thanks for sharing!

  66. Oh…my favorite dessert…on a stick.
    So fun. So smart. Thanks for shaing!

  67. Oh, I am SO making some pumpkin pie pops!!!

  68. You make these look SO easy! Now I'm totally going to have to make them… though I know mine will never look half as cute as yours!

    Sues

  69. You are such an inspiration! xxx

  70. holy cow! this is the cutest thing ever. i'm gonna have to make these. yum.

  71. I always seem to be also, blown away by everything you post! I am looking for some help with the cupcake/cheesecake pops in getting my chocolate the right consistancy to 'dip' the balls in! Any helpful hints would be greatly appreciated. I have tried twice and can't seem to get it right, to make it look as smooth as everyones look!

  72. Perhaps dipping in chocolate afterward would cut the pastry flavor? I'm just saying… ;)

  73. Too cute! I love them!

  74. so cute! great idea! Question for you…on your cupcake bites made easy-can you use chocolate chips or a bar of good chocolate over chocolate bark? I wasn't sure of the difference? Thanks!

  75. These are ADORABLE! I have a weakness for all things mini. http://kitchenbelle.com/2009/03/27/mini-strawberry-cupcakes/

  76. Lovely! I bet the heart shaped ones would look cute with some melted white chocolate drizzled on them. Tint the chocolate pink and have a nice Valentine's Day gift! Or just dip one half of the pie pop in chocolate. That would take care of the less filling/too much pastry problem.

  77. I saw these last week, probably just a little bit after you did, and I've been thinking about them all week.

    I will have to try a milk wash, because I know too many people allergic to eggs, but it looks like it would be a great treat! Maybe I'll buy pie dough, because I don't want to spend my time making it right now!

  78. Cute as PIE!

  79. they look so yummy and too adorable!!!

  80. So cute !!!

  81. Agree – GENIUS!
    I can't wait to try these out myself :))

  82. i have got to try these they look soo good

  83. *falls over and dies of cuteness*

    Wow. I don't know how I lived before I found your blog, it's gorgeous and makes me want to lick my computer screen. These are great!

  84. Whaaa ! C'est génial ! quelle belle idée ! Merci !

  85. Ha! I made the same thing and posted last night too! Pies, pies, everywhere!

  86. OMG! These are so freaking adorable…I must make them! :)

  87. I also went back to some of your older posts and I'm pretty sure you were the first person to be inspired by this "pop" concept of putting cupcakes on pie…

    I can't believe I didn't know about your blog before.

    Absolutely love it!!

  88. those look awesome! i'm totally making them this weekend. i think i'm going to try pumpkin :)

  89. Amazing, what a brilliant idea

  90. Did you know you are referenced in the August "Cookie" Magazine on Page 21??? It's a mom's type magazine….just wondered if you knew!!

  91. I would to know how you get such great pictures of everything!! I have tried different lighting and still can't get that great effect.. please let me know your secret!

  92. excellent! i'm not a big pie person, but i would love to make these…the crust is my favorite part of the pie, so i think i'd be thrilled with the crust-to-filling ratio. thanks for sharing, as usual!

  93. Oh my gosh, they are SO cute and look delish! I made your cake bites for the first time this weekend and I LOVED them, they were a huge hit at a family gathering I had this weekend. Thanks for the awesome idea!

  94. Oh my gosh — these are adorable! I am already picturing a whole bunch of pumpkin pie and apple pie pops on my Thanksgiving table — maybe even done with pumpkin & apple shaped cookie cutters and dusted with cinnamon/sugar! Ooooohhhh… I can't wait!

    My daughter is going to love these for sure. This will be a fun baking project to try out this weekend!

  95. OMG. I'm so jealous of your creativity… I don't even like pie and I want to try this!

  96. so yummy!!!!

  97. this is a great idea for kids party. looks like "little Bakerella" is being groomed to be a master baker some day. i enjoy visiting yr blog, there's always a new idea. well done!

  98. so cute! i love the dipping into chocolate ideas. i would fill them with nutella first. also, if i used pie filling, i would use the egg white wash, then sprinkle sugar on them, either colored or plain.

  99. Love them!

    But… When I saw them I couldn't help but think they need a little Bakerella flourish. A dip… Into melted chocolate, (white? dark?) that is, just to finish them off! Just one corner or perhaps just the back/front?

    I'm addicted to chocolate… I admit it.

    Great job! As always… Thanks for another wonderful idea!!

  100. Pop pie! Super cute.

  101. WOW, trying to bite through the computer screen right now! YUM!!!

  102. I love this idea. What a great idea. This would be perfect for a baby shower!

  103. These are fantastic! I love how neat and delicious they look. Great idea!

  104. I saw these last week and thought "I should send this link to Bakerella!". Guess someone beat me to it! I made these this weekend and brought them to the office, everyone went absolutely MAD for them!!

  105. These are just the cutest for a party! I have a 1st birthday party next week-end, and if I have time, I will definitely make those, thank you for the idea!!

  106. WOW. WOW. WOW. I have never seen these any place but here. Gorgeous and extremely creative.

  107. These are so cute…."POP-PIES" …
    LOL..I'm going to have to try this.

    MaBones

  108. They look positively wonderful!!!

  109. O dear, you have now added to my do to list: laundry, dust, wash front window, make pie pops. Wish me luck todnaay!

  110. These are super cute! I'm not a big pie fan though, so I'll just stick to cake pops. :)

  111. I'm sitting here at work just thinking about running one of these through some soft-serve ice cream… yum yum!

  112. This does it. I want to marry you…or at least your pies.

    I'm a pie person and this made my day!!!

  113. So Funny! You and I must have thought the exact same thing when we saw Cakespy's post regarding Luxirare's blog. I ran right out and bought all the items needed. I knew I had to do these. I agree with you, not enough filling. The second round I put more in but then had trouble getting the crust to stay sealed during baking. I also filled mine with chopped up Milky Way bars and Key Lie Pie filling. They were my favs. I love that you made heart ones. fantastic as always!!

  114. These are so cute! Personal Pie Pops…I love it!

  115. OMG Bakerella! Those are baketastically cute! I can make almost any kind of cake, but alas, I seem to be pie-challenged. I may give these a try though!

    One technical question: how do you make your posts have a pink background? It makes it SO much easier to follow up on comments and I would love to incorporate that into my own blog. Thanks!

  116. What a lovely idea, Just received my order of lillipop sticks,
    I can't wait to try them!!

  117. These are so darling! I'm already thinking of where I could take them…hmm…

  118. So cute! Where did you get that little mini circle cutter I see you using a lot? I need one!

  119. Your pops really are the cutest ever. All of them!

  120. I thought of you the instant I saw these. It's probably safe to assume you're going to find a way around the dough-to-filling conundrum!

  121. wow! What a way to start my Monday!First, I think your little helper is adorable !
    Second, I am going to be making these for my little one's birthday celebration. I just hope I succeed!
    Thanks for sharing these with us :-)

  122. I thought about you when I saw these on the net! I'm glad you two posted the tutorial. Thanks :)

  123. MMMMMMmmmmmmm….these look amazing!

  124. I think youve found my weak spot! Pie and anything to do with cakepops!!ie lolly pop sticks!! I will def. be trying these!

  125. Bakerella…you just made my morning. And thank you too, LuxiRare! I can picture them now for dessert with a Thanksgiving Feast, with cute leaf and pumpkin shapes on top of the pie dough for extra flare…

  126. Looks fantastic! I can "hear" some of her mama in the comments she made :) Isn't it cute how kids pick up on our sayings that we use?! My 5 year old and I will be trying these. Keep up the wonderful work you two!

  127. WOW! What will you come up with next! I love all these creative ideas!!

  128. HOW, how, HOW with all of the cake pops I've done from your inspiration, did it never occur to me to do pie? That's brilliant!!!

  129. These are fantastic!!!!!!!

  130. I made these last week, but used chocolate chip cookie dough in the middle, I agree with the amount of pie crust to filling, but I drizzled chocolate all over the top of mine and they were yummy!! I posted mine on my site ~ hope you check them out!

  131. Awesome idea! I may have to do this soon. My kids love cherry pie and cake pops. This would be the best of both worlds for them!

  132. I saw these too and have been wanting to make them. They are geniuses. :)

  133. That's Awesome!! I would have NEVER thought of that!! How unique, thank you for sharing

  134. Awesome! And what an instructor!

  135. Wow these are too cool. I still want to try and make cake pops when I get a chance now these are on the list too! You are great!

  136. oh sooo clever!!! looks yum too!!!

  137. So glad to see a little more specific instruction for making these. I saw the originals and links all over the web, but didn't feel comfortable attempting them until now.

    Do you think these would work with pumpkin pie filling for Thanksgiving?

  138. I love it when you feature ideas that I can teach my kids. They are on fire in the kitchen right now, and I know they are going to love making these!!!

  139. Is there anything you can't turn into a pop :) LOVE IT and I just happen to have crust in my fridge :)

  140. Easy it's a beautiful idea! I love all yuor posts! I see you again! By

  141. Pies are not so well known here but I think that a salty version could be a real hit.

    Thank you for sharing this great ideas with us.

  142. Proving yet again, food on a stick is adorable.

    Perhaps, for my daughter's sake, Bakerella could figure out how to put broccoli on a stick?

  143. Wow!
    These are so cute !!!
    I'm gonna try them this week =D

  144. Wow. Well, I went to that website with the pie pops, and I was just amazed by her/his photos and technique. Wow!

    I also love what you two did. i especially loved your little helper's commentaries and instructions. Too cute!

  145. Lordy Lou… I must make these.

  146. I'm not a fan of pie but those are super cute!

  147. those look so cute! what about glazing them?

  148. Hi,

    I have never used the lollipop sticks .. just wanted to know dont these sticks melt or are they oven safe.
    thanks
    annie

  149. you sure come up with the best ideas!!

  150. I always find your blog so enjoyable and inspiring, and such a delight to the senses! I'm looking forward to watching my Miss13's reaction when I show her your post.

  151. these might be the cutest darn thing i've ever seen. i also really love your photography skills. nice!
    jackie

  152. I CANNOT wait to try these. I just LOVE your blog and am addicted to cooking since I've been married and your blog just adds to my addiction. I get tons of ideas. Thank you for sharing your talents. I re-post me cooking some of your ideas and lead people to your blog. Can't wait to try this.

  153. I agree…more fruit the better! These look so tasty! I can't wait to try making them.

  154. FABULOUS!
    i know you used ready made pie dough, but do you happen to have a good recipe for pie dough anyway?

    Thanks!

  155. Can you help us? We have tried to make cakepops 3 times with no success. We have problems with the cake falling off the stick when we dip them. We've tried moister cake, drier cake and that hasn't changed anything. I've been using homemade icing. Do you have a recipe for icing that isn't heavy? I hate to use canned icing, it never tastes as good. We also would like to know if there is a trick to make the candy bark smooth? The few cakes that stayed on the stick that we dipped were not very pretty. Thank you so much! My 10 year old daughter, Annie, is determined to make these. Thank you so much! Denise

  156. this is SO f-ing CUTE!!!

  157. omg those are so cute! i'm going to have to try to make those!

  158. I sense potential… pumpkin… pecan… ohhhh my…. thanks for sharing!

  159. I did the same thing today and came to the same conclusion. They are as cute as anything, but the crust to fruit ratio is way off.

  160. what a brilliant idea!

  161. When do you sleep? These are so cute!!! I will try them when it gets a little cooler in the desert.

  162. the best idea EVER

  163. Soooo cute! They made me smile:)

  164. WOW these are over the top!!! First the cake pops were amazing and now pie!! I will be trying these. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

  165. Oh no you didn't! So cute! I love the idea, and I was thinking, what if you used perserves? Maybe there would be more filling with less bulk and it would balance out the crust. Love your helper too! How fun.

  166. Do you suppose you could deep fry them?

  167. LuxiRare – I would have tried that too, but the filling I was using wasn't thick like yours. Glad you liked my attempt.

    NicNacManiac – thanks!

    Knitnut,Karen – she really is

    Anonymous – dang… next time.

    vertigoxcured – Pilsbury rolled pie crust.

    Lady P – yeah… I wish you could have heard her say it.

    vertigoxcured – well you will need to bake it because of the crust. And chocolate would be great. Just make sure your mixture is thick. Or just melt a hershey's kiss like the suggestion above.

    Jessica – or lollipies!

  168. When I make them they will be called lollypies.

  169. I just discovered your blog and my mouth is watering like crazy!Can't wait to read more! These pie pops look adorable!

  170. oops i also ment to ask in my comment…what do you think about doing a chocolate pie version of this? i know the chocolate pie i make doesnt require any baking. any opinions on that? thanks

  171. "baketastic" – that saying had to be my favorite moment in this posting

  172. Oh wow these really are too cute! I'm a new visitor of your blog and I must say it's gonna be my frequent go-to blog for baking from now on. :)

  173. do you think you could spare your recipe for pie crust?! my grandma gave me one years ago, it was right before she died and i think some thing got lost in translation and i cant ever get it to come out right! thanks for any help!

  174. Mincemeat would probably make a great filling, because it's so sweet and so rich that a little goes a long way.

    Inspired! (And thanks for the link to the original. What a cool blog!)

  175. I'm tingly all over. We did the same project this weekend. I feel special…tee-hee!!

  176. These look cute!

  177. these pictures make me salivate!

  178. I saw these and thought they were brilliant! Yours look stunning, too.

  179. (shoot not sure if my othe rocmment went through) LOVE THESE, soo super cute and i love how you show me these ah-ha things, no matter you didnt originate them (all), i see them from you. love too how honest you were about them not being fruity enough, as i think i would too. LOVE THESE. thanks,

    -your biggest fan, see john schneider post, kim :)

  180. I tried my own version of these today, sans sticks. My crust to fruit ratio was way to far in the crust category. I made my crust from scratch and didn't roll it thin enough. If I do it again I'm definitely going the remade crust route.

    Yours came much more beautiful than mine, although I got aggravated rolling the crust (um, without a rolling pin) and by the time I was assembling them I rushed the whole thing. Still tasty and I'll definitely try again.

  181. These are adorable.
    I'm thinking these would be wonderful with a Hershey's kiss in the middle… for a little chocolate ;)

  182. i've been seeing these all over this past week and want to try them for sure! i'm a huge crust fan, so hopefully i will like crust/filling ratio a little better…maybe some cinnamon sugar on the top….hmm.

  183. These look sooo cute….I am suprised that you didn't sprink;e them with sparkling sugar. It would have added sweetness and sparkle!

  184. how adorable!

  185. I am always way too late to post a comment..Just want too say again..another totally delightful inspiring post.
    Thanks for all the sweet ideas you give us to spoil the ones we love~
    With appreciation~

  186. Thank you for sharing this great idea! The girls and I will give this a try before we are back to school. ~Kelly

  187. I can't wait to make these. They are too cute. And I have to admit I like pie more than cake, so I'm super excited about these.

  188. what an adorable dessert!! Thanks for the great idea!!

  189. these are so cute!

  190. They look delicious! How fun it must've been to cook with your daughter (^^ )

  191. Such a clever idea! Looks like a tasty bitefull! Great helper!!

  192. Oh my goodness gracious..these look so yummy! :)~

  193. omagoodness that could possibly be the sweetest thing eva!

    Can't wait to try these!

  194. These look amazing. I did a post about your site yesterday.

    Check it out if you have the time… http://nicnacmaniac-nicnacmaniac.blogspot.com/2009/07/happy-pink-saturday.html#comments

    Love Love all of your yummy treats!!
    Have a fabulous evening!!

  195. Once again, you topped yourself. You really do just keep raising the bar.

    I'm not a pie person but if I was, I'd make these. Super cute.

  196. Very cute, as is everything on your site. I like my pie with more filling too, but the heart-shaped pops would be so adorable for a teacher's gift for Valentine's Day in a little arrangement. Love it!

  197. oh my! These are just fantastic! Sooo creative, and they look ta die for dah-ling!

  198. just blown away by your execution here. I love that you figured out how to get the pie pops not to burn. I agree about the filling. What I ended up doing for the second round of pops was overfill the filling a bit. Because the pastry stretches, it can fit a lot.

    Also I'm wondering how thin I can get the pasty crust super thin without breaking….

    It was wonderful to read this and thank you so much for linking me on your wildly popular blog…

  199. great job!!!
    looks super yummy!!!
