Holiday tables are usually filled with classics like stuffing, egg nog, and pumpkin pie. I decided to remake the latter using the Kenmore 4-Slice Toaster Oven. Its tiny appearance can be deceiving—it’s large enough to fit four slices of toast or in this case, three homemade pie pops!
Pie pops, or hand pies, are a twist on a traditional pie. They feature delicious pie filling and buttery crust but are portable and can be eaten on a stick. Mine are filled with pumpkin pie filling and chocolate pecan filling. If you have another favorite pie – like apple – just swap the filling for a dollop of apple butter and a piece of a fresh apple. Pre-made cherry pie filling would be delicious too.
- Ready made pie crust, thawed if frozen
- White sanding sugar
- 1 egg white (1/4 cup)
For the pumpkin filling
- 1/2 cup pumpkin butter
For the chocolate pecan filling
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 cup pecan pieces
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat the 4-Slice Toaster Oven to 375° by turning the top dial halfway between 350° and 400°. Turn the bottom dial to 25 minutes. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit inside the baking sheet.
Use a rolling pin to roll out the ready made pie crust to an 1/8” thickness. Cut out the pie crust using an assortment of 3” wide cookie cutters.
Place 3 pieces of cut out pie crust on the lined baking sheet. Add a white candy stick to each pie piece. Place a dollop, about the size of a quarter, in the center of each piece of dough. Place another matching cut out piece of pie crust on top, and use a small fork to gently press the edges of each pie pop.
Brush each pie pop with egg whites and sprinkle white sanding sugar on top.
Bake in the toaster oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly and enjoy!
The pie pops can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for 2 days.
