We had a potluck last Tuesday and I totally forgot about it the day before so I had to quickly make something at home. Hhhhmmm… So what did I make?



Want one?

Good thing a friend posted a link on her Facebook wall. I clicked on the link and found this blog called Luxirare. I’m telling you, this blogger is super creative in whatever she makes and posts. Between you and me, I think she’s from another world or a different dimension. I’m not kidding! Here is what she made and the title of her blog post is Float.

Anyway, I digressed. So Luxirare made these perfect little pies on a stick and I knew I had to try it someday. Well, I thought “why not make it for the potluck?” I didn’t know whether it’s going to be easy or not but I definitely had to try it.

I just used a store-bought pie dough as suggested by Luxirare. It’s quick, it’s good and best of all, no mess. I decided to use the strawberry and raspberry jam that we have in the fridge as I didn’t have the time to make the filling from scratch.


Ingredients and equipment

I placed the pie dough on a parchment paper so it’s easier to managed. Then I rolled it out as thin as possible so it’s not just going to be a baked pie dough. I knew it was thin enough since it got somewhat transparent.


Rolled as thin as possible.

Next, the lollypop sticks and a small amount of filling are placed in the centre of the dough. We have a thick raspberry jam that wasn’t so runny. However, the strawberry jam has a bit more of a runny jelly so I made sure to put in most of the fruit.


Easy on the filling!

We also made little cut-outs of maple leaf to add some pizazz to each pie.


Pretty cute, aren't they?

I brushed the other side with egg wash (egg whites diluted with a little bit of water) and carefully crimped the edges with a dessert fork so as not to push out the filling. This is the trickiest and hardest part. Then I brushed the top with more egg wash and placed the maple leaf in the centre.


The tricky part -- sealing the filling!


The moment of truth.

Cook it under 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, cool them on wire racks and voila!


Nicely browned and flaky.

After the pies have completely cooled, I placed them in a container filled with sugar. It helps to keep them in place.


I had to try one. It's good!

So were they pretty easy to make? I would say so. You just have to have the time, patience and the will to not put too much filling. Seriously!

I say give it a try!

    Yes! A lot of the mom’s asked me how to make them. They want to make it for when their kids have to bring something to school.

      Thanks! The good thing about it is you can still manage to have one even if you’re full after having a hearty meal.
