What's better than a delicious slice of cherry pie? A tiny cherry pie on a portable stick!

These little pies are an adorable and creative gift for your sweetheart this Valentine's Day. They are super easy to put together and you can individually wrap them as presents, or display them standing upright, for a Valentine's party. These are also ideal for a bridal brunch!

You can replace the pie filling with strawberry or another berry pie filling. Or, if you really like to make things from scratch, you can of course make your own pie filling too! If you are pressed for time, feel free to buy store-bought pie crust. It cuts easily and is always very reliable!

What You'll Need

  • Pie Crust:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 8 tablespoons shortening
  • 8 tablespoons butter (cold)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 4-8 tablespoons ice water
  • Pie Filling and Other Ingredients:
  • 1 (16 oz.) can cherry pie filling
  • 1 egg white mixed with 1 teaspoon of water
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 15 lollipop sticks

How to Make It

  1. Pulse together the flour, shortening, butter and salt in a food processor until small crumbs form. You can also do this by hand with a pastry blender.
  2. Mix vinegar with ice water. Then slowly pour water mixture into food processor while pulsing to combine with the dough. Stop when the dough forms large soft crumbs.
  3. Remove dough from food processor and divide in half.
  4. Gently form the dough into a ball. Place on a piece of plastic wrap and cover. Then carefully flatten with your hand so it makes a short disk.
  1. Repeat with the other half of the dough. It is really important not to over work the dough, because it will become tough very easily.
  2. Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. When you are done chilling, preheat the oven to 375 F.
  3. Remove one dough disc from the refrigerator and place it onto a floured surface. Roll into a sheet about 1/8-inch thick.  
  4. Cut out 15 circles with a biscuit cutter or a glass. 
  5. Place the circles on a parchment lined baking sheet (you will need two sheets), alternating placing the circles on the top and the bottom of the baking sheet, leaving room for each lollipop stick. Gently press a lollipop stick into the center of each circle. 
  6. Place one to two cherries and a little bit of the syrup onto the center of each circle, covering the lollipop stick.
  7. Smash each cherry gently so that it lies a little more flat. Brush the egg white around the outer edge of each circle. 
  8. Roll out the other ball of dough and cut out 15 circles.
  9. Cut out hearts from the center of each circle with a small heart cookie cutter.  If you don't have one, you can also cut slits instead. 
  10. Place the heart circle over each pie circle on the baking sheet.  Crimp the edges with the end of a fork. Repeat until all of the crusts are complete.  
  11. Brush the top of each pie pop with the egg white mixture. 
  12. Sprinkle a little of the granulated sugar over each pie. 
  13. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes until lightly browned. 
  14. Allow to cool slightly and serve!
