Pie Pops

pie pops recipe with step by step pictures

Pie pops – a whimsical twist on a regular pie.

They are tiny, they are cute, and they taste just like a bite of a nice pie.

I love desserts like these.

Inspired by a lovely lady called Bakerella, I knew I needed to get these pies into my life as soon as possible.

Some things just need to be done immediately.

To make my version of pie pops I decided to go with the recipe that I use to make my Mini Apple Pies. Only, I have made the crust a little more sweet and I finally decided to replace the apple filling with jam.

To make your own version, you can sure use any filling you really like. What I recommend is for the filling to be on the denser and sweeter side. It should be dense because it will leak less and it should be really sweet because you can only use a little for one pop.

Here’s my version of the pie pops, step-by-step-by-step-by-step… by step:

First I thought I’d only use apple filling for my pie pops, but this filling turned out to be not enough. You cannot get much filling into the pops, that’s why I needed something more flavor-intense.

Jam!

    Since everyone was making pies for Thanksgiving and more than enough – I thought these pie pops would be the perfect size dessert for those who were already full from dinner, but had to have a little something sweet. They went over really well, not on pie pop left! I loved making these and my 10 year old daughter helped, so she felt like she was all grown up! lol

    I’m going to be doing these for a carnival theme baby shower, and was wondering if you think I can make the dough, assemble the pies, and then refrigerate until I bake them the following day. Or should I just do it all the same day? These look fantastic!

      Hi Carrie!

      I think these can be easily refrigerated overnight, no problem.

      Have a wonderful baby shower!

    those pie pops look yummy. I was never really into cakes, pies, etc. but now i love them. My mom used to make Flan, arroz con dulce and bread pudding. So growing up i was spoiled with Spanish cuisine and no ones desserts were ever good enough. But that was then; keep up the good work.

    So I made these today for a coworker and they came out looking nothing like your beautiful pies haha. I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw them. They still tasted amazing though. I made one with boysenberry jam and the other with some blueberry preserves with blueberry cream cheese. Very delicious indeed!

    Heya! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website like yours take
    a large amount of work? I am completely new to blogging but I do write in
    my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    I have a pie pop maker and I absolutely LOVE IT. I don’t make just mini pies with it. I make nachos bites, calzone bites, ham and cheese bites, etc. The sky is the limit with these little wonders. They are great for making bit sized snacks for picky eaters!
