  • 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

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 Pillsbury.com 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!

    I adore this recipe! It will be featured as the “Daily Nosh” on virtualwinebar.com on Friday June 29, 2012. It’s been paired with Ledson’s 2008 Orange Muscat.  Lot’s of fun flavor combination potential!  Love your site ~ Cheers!

    Great idea for favors!  I’m going to feature this on my blog with a link so my readers can check it out.
    Thanks for sharing!

    These are a great idea.  So many couple choose chocolate or sweets.  Its nice to see a home made alternative.

  4. says

    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!

  5. Anne L says

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

  6. Jeanee says

    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 :)

      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.

    I would have to go with the peach, these look delicious!

    I would make a variety of flavors. Cherry pie to represent my childhood in Traverse City, Michigan, blueberry pie to represent my family farm, my favorite raspberry pie, and some kind of chocolate mousse because everyone deserves a delicious treat!

  9. Andrea says

    blueberry pie sounds really great right about now!  and of course with a big dollop of whip cream ;)

    Yummy Apple! :) I see these pies as perfect for many occasions – i.e. tailgating, showers, family holidays. Yay!

  11. Christie says

    Mmmm, those mini s’mores pies look divine! My tastes lean towards peach pie, but I’ll take a s’mores pie any day. :) 

  12. Wendy says

    I would do some cherry and some apple. Not fancy, not terribly creative, but I love the tried and true!

  13. Soni says

    Warm Apple pie is my all time favorite . But for any pie i can skip my lunch just to make extra room ;)

  14. Mandy says

    Any pie with raspberry would be delish!  (My favorite fruit!)

  15. Nicole N. says

    Oooh I’d make cherry. Those sound delicious :) Think I might have to try them tonight!

  16. Malia Ibarra says

    I wonder what it would be like to make a strawberry-guava pie, it would be a bit of an island taste in pie form :)

  17. Kim says

    I would go with peach pie pops. They’re delicious and orange is one of our wedding colors. Plus, it’s even in my email ;)

    What a great tutorial! My wedding was a little over a year ago, but now we have a baby shower coming up…these would make great favors for the guests! The white chocolate raspberry ones sound divine!

  19. Echo Dannelle says

    I was just talking to my honey about something like this for our wedding! We were actually talking about serving Peach Pie with Strawberries. I think it sounds DELICIOUS! Of course, for our laid back, country wedding, he wants his share of classic apple, which is just fine with me! 

  20. Southtexaswedding says

    For our June 9, 2012 wedding, I would make the chocolate-strawberry pie for our wedding favors!!!  I’m positive that I would be making all of these pies throughout the years though!!  I would LOVE to win this giveaway!  Such an amazing package!

  21. Kimberley D says

    I would do a lemon pie! My fiance and I love lemon flavored desserts so it’s a touch of us. One of our wedding colors is yellow so I feel it would add to the decor. Yum! Yum! Yum!

  22. Sarah {A Paper Proposal} says

    YUMMY!  The pie favors seem easy enough…I think that I could even make them!  ha!  I’m pretty much obsessed with apple pie, so that’s definitely what I would make if I won :)

  23. Shannon C. says

    I would make strawberry pie pops! It sounds so basic, I know, but my husband-to-be and I both love strawberries, so it would really put that “us” stamp on them. :)

  24. Shannnonmariewinn says

    Pecan pumpkin!  :) September fall wedding would certainly be complete with a flavor so appropriate! yuuuumm

  25. Kate Lanier says

    I was already planning yo make mini pecan pies as ourgrooms cake and the pie pop would be such a cute twist! I love it!! -kate (Kate.lanier@yahoo.com)

  26. Cassidyjmom says

    I think I would make blueberry pie pops in honor of the fruit of my state…..MAINE!!!

  27. melanie says

    I’d have to go with a family favorite…strawberry rhubarb. It’s sweet, it’s sour, it’s just delicious!

  28. bree [capitolromance] says

    love love LOVE this! goodbye cake pops – hellllo pie pops. just such a fantastically fun & unique idea! but also sensible … and delicious … it’s a win, win, win!

  29. chandra ~ oh lovely day says

    I would bake a peach pie!  I was never a pie person until I got pregnant and then I craved and became obsessed with them.  Peach was, and still is my favorite – even now that my baby is 9 months old!  

  30. kelley says

    The white chocolate raspberry pies sound delish! But for my September 8th (2012) wedding I would make the perfect apple pie pops to go with our vintage, southern glam wedding!

  1. […] 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)! […]
