Morgan’s Blueberry Pie Pops

Pie Dough

Blueberry Pie Filling

1 egg, beaten

Flour, for dusting

Sugar, for dusting

Lollypop sticks (8)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Roll out the pie dough of your choice on a well-floured surface until it is 1/8-inch thick.

Using a 2 ½-inch round cookie cutter, cut out 16 rounds, for 8 pie pops.

Place rounds onto the prepared baking sheet.

Place 1 heaping tablespoon of the Blueberry Pie Filling of your choice in the center of 8 of the rounds, leaving a boarder about ¼ inch from the edges.

Place the lollypop stick in the middle of the 8 rounds through the filling, and almost to the top of the rounds.

Brush the edges of all the rounds with egg wash.

Place the 8 rounds on top of the filled rounds, with the egg wash side down.

Press the edges together gently with your finger and then crimp the edges with a fork to make sure they are completely sealed.

Brush the tops of each pie pop with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.

Use a pairing knife to cut a small vent into each pop.

Bake pie pops until golden brown (about 20 minutes) and let cool before serving.

“Many other citizens have begun to recognize that farmers are the first stewards of natural resources. We share the same overall environmental goals.”
