Thanksgiving pie pops

Yields: 16 total pie pops


For cherry pie pops:

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup tart cherries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

For pumpkin pie pops:

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon light cream
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon flour (if you think the mix is too runny)
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cover baking sheet with foil and liberally grease foil with cooking spray.
  2. Roll out pie crusts on a floured surface. Using a small, round cookie cutter, cut out 16 circles with the crust, or until you’ve run out of crust. Place eight small circles onto the greased pan.
  3. To make cherry pie pops: Place cherries in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until they release their juices and come to a simmer, about 10-15 minutes (be sure to stir often).
  4. Mix corn starch and sugar and pour into the cherry mixture, stirring well. Return to a lower heat and simmer until sauce is thickened. Remove from heat and chill.
  5. To make pumpkin pie pops: Mix pumpkin, sugar, light cream and pumpkin pie spice together. If mixture is runny, add a tablespoon of flour.
  6. Using a small spoon, carefully spoon filling into eight of the circles, interchanging the variety (leave edges dry). Place a lollipop stick into the filling, pressing very lighting into the dough. Place another circle of dough on top of the filling and press firmly around the edges. Place a small sliver cut into the top of the dough to allow air in.
  7. Using a pastry brush, brush tops of pops with melted butter and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes.
