The Ultimate Recipe for Apple Pie Pops

Ingredients

  • 4 Fuji apples, peeled and medium-small diced
  • ¼ cup of sugar, plus 1/8 teaspoon for egg wash 
  • ¼ cup of brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons apricot jam (can be substituted with strawberry or peach for different flavors)
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ cup of milk
  • kosher salt
  • 2 refrigerated pie crusts

Equipment needed

  • 2″-3″ round cutter or top of water glass
  • Fork
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Parchment Paper

Preheat oven to 400° F. In a medium saucepan bring apples, sugar, brown sugar, honey, cinnamon, jam and 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt to a light simmer on medium-low heat. Simmer for 15-20 minutes on low heat uncovered. Combine water and cornstarch with a fork to create a slurry and slowly pour into the apple mixture while stirring. Let cook another 2 minutes. Take off the heat and let cool.

To build pie pops:

Prepare egg wash by mixing an egg yolk, milk, 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/8 teaspoon sugar. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Take out one refrigerated pie crust and cut as many circles as possible (around 12). Place them on the parchment paper. Place the lollipop sticks starting from the top of each circle and push them in but not so they go all the way through. Place around 1-2 tsp of apple filling in the middle of each pie circle. Roll out the second pie crust and cut out the equal amount of circles as the first  pie crust. Brush egg wash using a paper towel or pastry brush on the rim around the filling for the pie pops and cover the filling and seal with the remaining circles. Press the edges together with a fork. Brush the tops with more egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 400° F for 20 minutes.
