Apple Pie Pops Recipe



Hey there, wonderful folks of Columbia, Missouri and beyond! With spring break peeking around the corner, I know many of you are gearing up for some well-deserved relaxation and family time. Whether you're planning a glorious staycation or simply looking forward to spending those extra moments with your kids home from school, I've got a special treat for you today!


You might recall Back 2 Basics Cooking's Valentine's Day Treats Workshop – oh, what a day filled with laughter, learning, and, of course, lots of delicious treats! One of the stars of that sweet day was something so delightful and charming that I've been itching to share it with you all. And what better time than now, as we embrace the joy of spring break? So, without further ado, let's dive into making your very own Apple Pie Pops right in the comfort of your home. Trust me, it's the perfect activity to sprinkle a little extra fun into your week.


Apple Pie Pops Recipe


Prepare the Oven and Baking Sheet:


Let's kick things off by getting our oven ready. Preheat your oven to a warm 350 degrees – consider it the first step in our baking adventure. Next, grab a baking sheet and gently line it with parchment paper. This simple prep step is a game-changer for ensuring those pie pops slide right off after baking, making cleanup a breeze.


Prepare the Pie Crust Hearts:


  • Ingredients:

  • 2 pie sheets (let them sit out of the fridge for 30-45 minutes before using)

Gently unroll your pie crusts on a clean surface. Grab a heart-shaped cookie cutter (a round one works too, or even a mason jar lid) and press down to cut out those lovely hearts. If you find yourself with scraps, don't let them go to waste! Roll out those bits and continue cutting until you have an even number of hearts. Remember, in our kitchen, we embrace the beauty of zero waste.


Prepare the Topping:


  • Ingredients for Topping:

  • 1 egg

  • Your chosen apple pie filling

Take your apple pie filling and either give it a quick whirl in the food processor or chop it up by hand. We’re looking for small, bite-sized pieces that will tuck into those pie crust hearts like they were made for each other. Then, crack that egg into a small bowl and whisk it well. This is going to give our pie pops that irresistible golden glow.


Assemble the Pie Pops:


This is where the magic happens. Place a lollipop stick halfway up on half of the heart shapes. Spoon about 1 tablespoon of apple filling onto the center of these hearts, right over the sticks. Feel free to heap that tablespoon – after all, the more filling, the merrier. Cover each filled heart with another pie crust heart, and using a fork, gently crimp the edges to seal in the filling. Finally, brush the tops with the beaten egg to get them ready for their golden transformation.


Bake the Pie Pops:

Slide those prepared pie pops into the oven for about 14-16 minutes, or until they whisper to you in golden brown tones. The aroma alone will be enough to gather everyone around the kitchen in anticipation.


Prepare the Glaze:


  • Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

  • 1 tbsp milk

While our pie pops are cooling down, let's whisk together the powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl. Adjust the sugar quantity to reach your desired glaze consistency. Then, with a flourish, drizzle that glaze over the cooled pie pops, adding that final touch of sweetness. Wrap them in treat bags or tie a ribbon around the stick if desired!



And there you have it, my friends – Apple Pie Pops that are as fun to make as they are to eat. Whether you're making these with the little ones, gifting them to neighbors, or enjoying them as a personal treat, remember that cooking is all about unlocking your culinary potential, creating memories, and, most importantly, having a blast.


One of our participants decided to get a bit adventurous and put several pie pops on one stick, and let me tell you, it turned out so beautifully! It was a true testament to the creativity and joy that cooking can bring into our lives.
