Pumpkin Pie Pops

Happy November and Happy Pumpkin Month...well at least in my house there will be pumpkin all month long! I absolutely love the fall flavors of pumpkin and cinnamon so get ready for some festive holiday sweets that will be great additions at your Thanksgiving feast this year! If you don't like recipes with pumpkin I promise to sprinkle in a few other recipes as well this month...how about apples? Do you like apples? I'm thinking maybe an apple pie or apple cake/cupcakes sound mighty tasty! And for all you chocolate lovers out there, I'm sure there will be at least one recipe that contains chocolate for you too! So let's welcome November with some pumpkin, shall we?

This first recipe is a spin off of the traditional pumpkin pie! After all, is it really Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie? I'm excited to share with you my mini pumpkin pie pop! I don't know about you but my favorite part of any pie is the crust, so this pie pop is fantastic b/c you get double the crust and tons of cuteness! I guarantee any kid will want to take a bite out of one of these!

So let's get started on the assembly!

Roll out refrigerated pie crust and cut out circles.

Sprinkle crust with a cinnamon & sugar mixture! This takes me back to my childhood, sometimes my mom would pull a pie crust out of the fridge and sprinkle the entire thing with cinnamon & sugar and bake it up. She would cut it into triangle slices like a pizza and we would eat it for dessert! Yum!

Next add a small dollop of pumpkin pie mixture. You don't want too much or the filling will squeeze out the sides when you put the top crust on.

Place a lollipop stick on top of the pumpkin pie filling.

Place another pie crust circle on top to close off the pie.

Take a lollipop stick and gently press all the way around the edges to seal the top and bottom crusts together.

Pies are sealed and ready to add a little personality!

Use your excess pie dough to create some pumpkin faces, the kids will go crazy over these! Pop these babies into the oven to bake and then it's time to eat pie!

You can dress up the pie pops with some colored ribbon!
