What do you make for your Valentine who doesn’t like chocolate? Mini fruit pies on sticks, of course! These adorable heart-shaped pie pops were the perfect edible gift and they were pretty easy to make too.
All you need is a good homemade pie dough, a heart shaped cookie cutter, a jar of your favorite jam and a pack of oven-safe lollipop sticks. I rolled the dough out to about an 1/8 of an inch and then cut an even number of hearts.
It’s a bit of a challenge to get a decent dollop of jam in the center since the top dough heart will inevitably press some of the jam out the sides, but it’s still pie crust and jam, so no one’s complaining. A sprinkling of turbinado sugar over the egg wash before baking added some crunch and a little extra sweetness. They’re basically fancy Pop Tarts on sticks and they do an excellent job of brightening up a snowy winter day.
