Dessert Table Sweet: Apple Pie Pops

IMG_0119c
Here's another dessert table favorite. And really, how could it not be? Everyone loves apple pie, especially ones that are cute and bite-sized. These were the most time intensive of the desserts I made but the effort was worth it because they were beautiful and delicious.

Apple Pie Pops
Source: Our Best Bites
Yields approximately 30-2" round pops

2 sheets of  store bought pie crust dough
6" lollipop stick
Small bowl of water
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Course sugar or sprinkles for top
Apple pie filling
Cutter: I used a shot glass to cut out the circles


Apple Pie Filling (combine all ingredients below):
1 medium tart green apple, peeled and grated
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon cold butter, grated

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone baking mat if desired.

Roll out pie dough on a floured surface about 1/8 inch thick. Cut out shapes and place them on your baking sheet. Place about 1 tsp of filling on one cut out, keeping it away from the edges. Place 6 inch lollipop stick in center of shape, with the top of the stick near the top of the shape. Wet your finger in a small bowl of water and wet the edge of the pie dough shape. Wet the edges of a 2nd pie dough shape (one without filling) and place on top of the other. Press together gently with your fingers to seal the pieces together. Use a fork to crimp edges, being careful to seal edges around the stick. Poke a fork into top of pie one time so steam can vent. If desired, brush top of pie in melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake pies for 15-20 minutes until barely golden brown. Cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. Cool completely before packaging. If desired, place in cellophane bags and tie with ribbons and labels.
