Happy March Birthdays-Apple Pie Pops Gift Baskets

                               To celebrate two of my friend's Larry & Suzanne Birthday
                                      I made them  an Apple pie pop gift basket !
                                                            What a great yummy gift !

                                                             Happy Birthday!                                                                       
                                           Apple pie pops



  • 1 pkg of store bought pie crust 
  • Apple pie spice for topping
  • Apple pie preserve filling-(I used Webster Dutch apple preserves)
  •  1 egg , beaten
  • Flour for dusting
  • Turbindado sugar for topping 
  •  1 oz of Water in a cup 


  • 1-2 inch cookie cutter
  • Baking sheet
  • Cooling rack
  •  32 - (6 inch) lollipop sticks
  • Rolling pin 
  • Fork & tooth pick 
  • Silicone pastry brush 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray  non-stick spray on baking  sheets or you can use lined parchment paper.

Roll out the pie crust on a well-floured surface until it is 1/8-inch thick. Using a  round cookie cutter, cut out 16 rounds, for 8 pie pops.
( 32 pie pops per pkg)

Place the rounds onto the prepared baking sheet. 

 Place about 1 heaping teaspoon of the Apple Pie Filling in the center of 8 rounds, leaving a border about 1/4-inch from the edges. 

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

 With your pastry brush or finger circle the edges with water  so you can seal the top layer. Place the remaining 8 rounds on top of the filled rounds. Press the edges together gently with your finger (I also pinch the dough together around lollipop stick) and then crimp the edges with a fork to make sure the edges are completely sealed. 
(Use a little flour on your fork to crimp the edges so your fork doesn't stick to the pie dough.)

 Poke each pop with a toothpick in the center about 5-6 holes to vent.

 Brush the tops of each pie pop with egg wash.

Sprinkle each pop  with  mixture of the turbinado sugar and apple pie spice.
 (You can substitute with cinnamon)

 Bake the pie pops until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
(My oven its about 17-18 min)
 Once cooked, let them rest to cool.


                                          Gift baskets 


 You will need the following:
  • 1 Happy Birthday Balloon
  • Colorful Ribbons
  • Favor bags (Clear)
  •  Paper fillings (I used Easter grass)
  • Basket 
  • Lettering
  • Block of floral foam
  • Pie pops


 Place each of  the pie pops into favor bag and tie with the ribbon.

 Place the block of floral foam to fit inside basket.

Place & arrange the the decorated pie pops into the foam.

Add Birthday name onto basket and fill basket with paper shreddings or grass .

Add Balloon to add finishing touch.

              Hope my friends enjoyed their gift baskets!
