Just in time for Valentine’s Day, you can wow a special some one with the effort of making them tiny, personalised pies. (I say this somewhat tongue in cheek.) I’ve blogged about cake pops before, but here’s the new trend: the pie pop. I saw this idea on Pinterest, and I would happily link to the photos that inspired me, but the link was dead. Dear Inventor of the Pie Pop, I hop I haven’t ruined your idea of them too badly seeing as how I made the recipe up myself.
Mini Heart Pie Pops
Jam (flavour of your choosing, I used cherry)
1 teaspoon of water.
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Roll out your pie crust dough very thinly onto a surface that has been lightly dusted with flour. If you don’t roll them out thinly, you will rue the day as your pie pops will be too much crust, not enough filling. Then begin to cut out hearts.
You should put a spoonful of jam and several chocolate chips onto one heart of each pair. Depending on how large the hearts you cut out are, you will have to experiment on how much filling is appropriate.
Once you have the filling onto one hear in every pair, mix together the water and the egg to make an egg wash. Place your lollipop sticks firmly but carefully into the halves with filling. Brush the plain hearts with the egg wash, then place the egg wash side down onto the other half, sealing the edges well.
Once they are all aligned onto your backing tray, brush all the tops with your egg wash as well. Mine baked for 13 minutes, but my oven tends to run cool.
A perfect, bite size treat for children or a special someone.
