I've never been a huge fan of pie. except chocolate pie. because its chocolate. duh. but when I discovered this amazing recipe, I HAD to try it out. They are so cute. Who DOESN'T want pie on a stick. It tastes so much better. I promise. kind of.
The pie pops pictured above are from Bakerella.com. She got the idea from here:http://luxirare.com/float/ and she has a tutorial here: http://www.bakerella.com/easy-as-pie/But I am going to tell you how to make them as well.
I made mine with chocolate filling because everything is better in chocolate.
First you are going to want to soak your sticks in water otherwise they will burn in the oven. I Would say you need to soak them between 30-60 minutes.
Then make your pie crust. any recipe will work. I used this one :
Next, plop a nice disgusting looking blob of filling (I just used pudding) onto your pie pop. yummm... remember that chocolate makes it better. make sure not to put too much in or it will explode in the oven. like mine did.
Cover up that filling. looking at it any longer is gonna make me not want to eat it. And I really want to. I know it still looks like an ugly blob. Don't worry. It will get better.
Take one of your sticks and press the sides together to make cute little patterns around the edges. Then insert the sticks into the pie and press them down into the dough. just a little bit.
Bake them at 325 for about 10-15 minutes. The filling in mine either dried up or spilled out all over the pan and burned. Maybe next time I should try inserting the filling AFTER I bake the crusts. Or I should just not use chocolate :'(
