Blueberry Pie Pops (Poptarts)
September 14, 2011 § 21 Comments
These blueberry pie pops are super easy to make and fun to eat too. You can make the pie crust from scratch and keep it handy in the freezer or use store bought to keep it really easy to make.
This recipe is adapted from the blog Family Kitchen.
- 1 c fresh blueberries
- 2-3 tbsp sugar (more or less depending on how sweet you want it)
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- 2 tbsp water
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 package prepared pie crust (or homemade…enough to make crust for two pies or top and bottom of one)
- lollipop sticks
- 1/2 c powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp milk
- 2 tbsp fresh blueberry puree
- *1-2 drops of blue food coloring optional since the puree doesn’t really make the glaze blue
In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine the blueberries, cornstarch, sugar, water, and vanilla.
Stir and break down some of the blueberries until it has thickened.
Set aside to let cool.
Preaheat oven to 400 degrees.
Roll out pie crust and cut out rectangles (for pop tarts) or use cookie cutters for fun shapes.
Arrange half of the cut out pie crusts on baking sheets covered with parchment paper.
Spoon blueberry filling onto pie crust. (don’t overfill, the amount will depend on how large you cut your pie crusts)
Place a popsicle stick on top of the filling.
Cover the filling with the rest of the pieces of pie crust.
Crimp the edges together using a fork or a lollipop stick. (I didn’t seal mine well and they oozed while baking, but when cooled it stayed together anyway.)
Bake for about 10 minutes.
In a small bowl combine all the ingredients for the glaze and mix well.
Once the blueberry pops are out of the oven and cooled, spoon or brush the glaze onto each pie pop.
