Pies on Sticks

Aired July 15, 2010

12 popsicle sticks
1 box pre-made pie crust (2 crusts per box)
Flour, for dusting
1 egg, beaten with a splash of water
Filling choices:
Any canned pie filling, such as pumpkin
Cherry all-fruit preserves
Strawberry all-fruit preserves
1 small ripe banana, combined with 8 ounces cream cheese and 4 tablespoons confectioners sugar

Preheat oven to 400F.

Place sticks in a shallow dish, cover with water and soak for 20 minutes.

On a floured surface, roll both pie doughs out to about 1/8-inch thick. Cut into 6 wedges.

Place 3 tablespoons of filling on each triangle. Place a popsicle stick at the wide end of the wedge. Brush edges with egg wash and fold over, creating a filled pie wedge. Crimp the sides with a fork and brush the tops with egg wash. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.
