DIY Pie Pop Wedding Favors

DIY Pie Pop Wedding Favors by Pillsbury

Edible favors are always a popular choice for weddings, and lately I’ve been seeing a lot of deliciously sweet pie pop favors! The lovely folks at Pillsbury® were kind enough to share their recipe for making your own pie pop favors, so enjoy!

Materials Needed (Makes 8 Pie Pop Favors) -

  • 3/4 cup frozen strawberries, thawed, chopped, drained, juice reserved
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup frozen chopped rhubarb, thawed
  • 1 box Pillsbury® refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
  • 8 craft sticks (flat wooden sticks with round ends)
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar, if desired for drizzle
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons milk, if desired for drizzle
  • 3 1/2-inch round cutter
  • Food safe plastic wrap (optional)
  • Fabric, ribbons and a variety of adornments for decorating (optional)

DIY Pie Pop Wedding Favors by Pillsbury

Step 1: The dough
Pillsbury® Refrigerated Pie Crusts make pie baking a snap – just unroll, fill and bake!

Step 2: The filling
In a bowl, place reserved strawberry juice. In another bowl, mix 1/3 cup granulated sugar and the cornstarch; using whisk, beat into reserved strawberry juice. Stir in strawberries and rhubarb. If desired, replace the strawberry-rhubarb filling with 1 cup of your favorite canned pie filling – cherry, blueberry, apple or a variety! For inspiration, visit for hundreds of delicious pie recipes, or check these ideas out:

Step 3: Unroll, cut and fill
Remove pie crusts from pouches; unroll on work surface. Using a 3 1/2-inch round cutter, cut out 16 rounds (8 rounds per crust). Place 8 rounds on ungreased cookie sheet. Spoon strawberry-rhubarb mixture evenly onto each round to within 1/2 inch of edge. Place 1 craft stick in filling of each.

Step 4: Top off the Pops
Flatten remaining rounds to 4 inches in diameter. Brush underside of each round with egg white; place over fruit. Press edges together; seal with fork. Cut small slit on top of each. Brush tops with egg white; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar, dividing evenly among pops.

Step 5: Bake
Bake at 450°F for 10 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 10 minutes before serving.

Step 6: Drizzle
Mix powdered sugar and milk until smooth, adding milk until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over pops and let stand until set, about 30 minutes.

Step 7: Decorate
Once cooled, decorate with fabric, ribbon, personalized hang tags or any other special touches you can dream up and place in food-safe plastic wrap to keep fresh.

Step 8: Enjoy!
Give as favors at your wedding, your cousin’s bridal shower, your sister’s engagement dinner, your friend’s bachelorette party or any other occasion that deserves a sweet little homemade thank-you. Just don’t expect any leftovers!

    How far in advance could you make the pie pops and how would u store themReplyCancel

  • […] How do you modernize and freshen up the idea of a “white wedding”? Elyse Hall Photography and Imoni Events set out to do just that with this lovely styled shoot in Arizona at the Four Seasons in Scottsdale. With the help of a team of talented vendors, they took the classic concept of a white wedding and added in some Arizona flair in shades of teal, orange and yellow. The result is a hip new take that stays true to modern design and clean white accents while honoring Arizona’s rustic nature. They included a really fun dessert bar with all sorts of sweet treats, such as pie pops (which you can DIY as wedding favors)! […]ReplyCancel

  • Love these! SO cute! They’d be really fun for a wedding, bridal/baby shower, rehearsal dinner…or so much more! We’re getting married on August 11, 2012, and I’d make these for our rehearsal dinner which is being held in the park where we’re getting married. And after visiting the Pillsbury site, I’d definitely make the mini s’more pies (if I could figure out how!) into these cute pie-pops. Yum!ReplyCancel

  • Anne L

    So cute!!  What a great giveaway!  A chocolate peanut butter pie pop would be aaaahhhamazingReplyCancel

  • Crcpaula38

    I would want cherry blueberryReplyCancel

  • Jeanee

    I would make traditional apple pie pops because my husband is the connoisseur of apple pie! But then he’d probably eat too many at once if they are conveniently on a stick! LOL :)ReplyCancel

  • Mintlovesocialclub

    white chocolate raspberry HANDS DOWN!

    Also I would be interested to find out pillsbury’s recommendations on how long these keep for and about potentially freezing them?


    • From Pillsbury: For best quality, use refrigerated pie crusts before the “use-by” date on the package.

      Pie crusts may be frozen for up to two months if placed in the freezer before the “use-by” date. Don’t microwave frozen crusts to defrost.ReplyCancel
