Celebrate Pi Day!
- 1 package pie crusts (2)
- can of desired pie filling
- lollipop sticks
- cookie cutter
Place the pieces down on your baking sheet, lined with parchment paper, alternating so you have room for the stick. Place a lollipop stick down on each piece.
I chopped up my filling a little before putting it in the pies because I chose cherry and the cherries were sort of big, I wanted to be able to fit enough inside. Place a small dollop of your filling in each pie, making sure to not get to close to the edge.
Place another piece over the filling and use a broken off, short piece, of a lollipop stick to press down the edges, sealing them completely. If you get a little oozing out, just wipe it up with a paper towel and continue sealing.
Brush the tops of each pie with egg whites. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes. I kept mine in for the full length and maybe a minute longer.
I got 5 pies out of each circle of pie dough, without reusing the scraps to make more. I didn't know how well premade pie dough would hold up to that much kneading and rolling, but you could definitely do it and probably get 7 out of each circle.
How cute are these, right? I think they came out really well. To some the ratio of crust to filling is off for them, saying there isn't enough filling, but I thought it was perfect. This may be personal preference, or it was because I chopped the filling, so I was able to fit more inside. Also note that a few of the sticks seemed loose, so make sure when you're sealing your pies that you seal extra good around where the stick comes out of the bottom.
