Heart Shaped Pie Pops
Happy Valentine’s Day friends! I’ve got one more sweet treat to show you, and I’ve saved the best for last. These little heart-shaped pie pops are adorable and perfect for your girlfriends or your kids, and best of all you put these together really quick!
For these pie pops, I just used pre-made pie crust, but you can always use your own favorite recipe. I love this no fail butter piecrust recipe you can find here. I used a heart-shaped cookie cutter and cut out 16 heart shapes from my pie dough. For the filling, I used my favorite easy go-to strawberry pie filling from Lucky Leaf. After putting the pie pop s together, I used a fork to press the dough together, then brushed them with butter before baking.
This batch of pie pops is headed to the ladies at my husband’s office this morning. Hopefully it will brighten their day!
Here’s some more great Valentine’s Day recipes from some of my best blogging buddies who also created some beautiful treats with Lucky Leaf pie fillings.
