  • small bowl of water
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Course sugar or sprinkles for top
  • Canned pie filling, or homemade apple below
  • Cookie Cutters

Apple Pie Filling (combine all ingredients below):
  • 1 medium tart green apple, peeled and grated
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter, grated

Glaze (Whisk all ingredients until smooth.  Add milk until desired consistency is reached):
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1-3 tsp milk

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone baking mat if desired.Roll out pie dough on a floured surface about 1/8 inch thick. 
  2. Cut out heart shapes (or other shape of your choosing) and place them on your baking sheet.  
  3. Place about 1-2 tsp of filling on one cut out, keeping it at least 1/4 inch away from the edges.  
  4. Place 6 inch lollipop stick in center of shape, with the top of the stick near the top of the shape.  
  5. Wet your finger in a small bowl of water and wet the edge of the pie dough shape.  
  6. Wet the edges of a 2nd pie dough shape (one without filling) and place on top of the other.  
  7. Press together gently with your fingers to seal the pieces together.  Use a fork to crimp edges, being careful to seal edges around the stick.  
  8. Poke a fork into top of pie one time so steam can vent.  If desired, brush top of pie in melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.  (Or leave plain to glaze after)
  9. Bake pies for 15-20 minutes until barely golden brown.  
  10. Cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.  
  11. If glazing, gently brush or spoon glaze over pies while still warm.
