If you are a reader of my blog then you know, rolling an even pie crust is a challenge for me. It’s like a cutting a straight line—I just can’t seem to get it down. With that in mind, I flipped the Roasted Peach and Butterscotch Sauce Pie from BHG’s new book Fresh, to hand pies to minimize my less-than-perfect pie rolling talent. Along with that I made them pops, because food on a stick is always fun—for real.
And if you decide to make these for the 4th of July, you can easily make them holiday- appropriate by using red, white and blue sticks. Striped paper straws will work just as well. Just stick them in after the hand pies have baked and cooled. The ribbon isn’t necessary—the pies stay on the stick just fine—it’s there as a detail, a.k.a cute food embellishment.
