Before you get started you are going to need to go shopping. Here is what you need to buy-
pie filling (any flavor)
Pillsbury pie crust
egg whites
pop sticks
a fork
cooking brush
baking sheets

pie pop materials

Steps for Pie Pops
1. Pre-heat oven according to directions on Pillsbury Crust Box.
2. Roll out the dough onto an even surface.
3. Using a cookie cutter or a mug with a round lip, cut out circles from the dough.
4. Spoon the pie filling onto the dough. Too much filling will cause it to seep out of the edges of the crust after it is cooked, so keep it to about one heaping spoonful of filling per pie pop.

5. Insert your pop stick into the filling.
6. Cut a heart shaped center out of another circle of dough.
7. Brush egg whites (mixed with a little water) onto the inner edges of the first layer of the pie pop.
8. Lay the second layer of dough over the filling and use a fork to join the edges together. The egg white mixture will act as a glue for the dough.
9. Brush another layer of egg whites over the whole pie pop before baking to give it a golden brown appearance.
