Anyone who has ever met me probably knows that I am a dessert fanatic. While Megan is more of a pumpkin advocate, I eat any and all sweet things and rarely discriminate. In particular, I LOVE apple pie. Just ask my mom who has to make an extra apple pie just for me at all holidays (thanks mom!) So, when we started thinking about desserts for the wedding, I thought it would only be right to have a dessert bar with apple pie included in some form (as well as a full sized wedding cake because well I am greedy). Megan and I found this recipe for pie pops and we said done and done. They are super easy to make and came out fantastic so we wanted to share the deliciousness with you lovely people!
Start by making the apple pie filling and rolling out the pie crust on flour or parchment paper. If you are feeling super fancy then you could make your own crust as it recommends in the recipe but we just used the pre-made kind. For the shape of the pops, we used 3″ heart shaped cookie cutters. Of course you can use any shape you want.
Put a small amount of pie filling on each heart, but leave a little space around the edges so you are able to put the other heart cutout on top. Press the lollipop sticks (we found ours at Hobby Lobby) into the center of the filling. Take another pie crust cutout and put water around the edges to help with the sealing. Press the second cutout on top of the first and press together at edges, paying special attention to the area around the stick. Press a fork around the edges both to help seal and to add to cuteness. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes until VERY light brown.
We did an initial taste test and decided that the pie pop by itself was not sweet enough, so Megan whipped up some glaze to put over the top. Here is the final product! Totally delicious, cute, and easy to eat.Lots of love Colleen Note from the editor (i.e. Meg): Please take a moment to note the dinnerware circa 1970 that my parents refuse to let go of. Anyone who knows us well knows that holding on to this sort of thing is a staple in my family. I am happy it could make a blog appearance for your viewing pleasure.
