How to make Apple Pie Pops
- 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
- 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (1 1/2 medium)
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/4 cup caramel topping
- 1 pie crust, softened
- 8 lollipop sticks
- 1 egg white, beaten
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup apple cider
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In 8-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add apples and lemon juice; cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are almost tender. Stir in 1/4 cup caramel topping; continue cooking until sauce is thick and coats apples. Set aside.
- Meanwhile, heat oven to 400°F. Unroll pie crust onto cutting board. Using 3-inch round cutter, cut out 12 rounds. Place 6 rounds on ungreased cookie sheet. Spoon fruit mixture evenly onto each round to within 1/2 inch of edge. Place 1 craft stick in each filling from center to edge of round.
- Flatten remaining rounds until 4 inches in diameter. Brush underside of each round with egg white; place over fruit. Press edges together; seal with fork. Cut small slit in top crusts to vent steam. Brush tops with remaining egg white. In another small bowl, mix 1 teaspoon sugar and the cinnamon; sprinkle over tops.
- Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool at least 10 minutes.
- For the glaze, bring sugar, apple cider, butter, and corn syrup to a boil in a small heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium, and cook, stirring constantly, 4 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. Drizzle over apple pie pops and serve.
