Use Pie Pop Makers and Mini Pies Molds for Portion Control
Pie Pops Make a Fun, Portion Control Treat
Pie Pops are one of the latest mini dessert trends. Not only are the mini pies an easy way of making pies for Pop, they are also a fun way to let the kids make their own custom mini pie pops as a party or sleepover treat. Let them pick their own pie fillings, so everyone gets a favorite flavor of pie.
Anytime my daughter's ask their Dad what he wants for dessert or as a treat, it is always pie. This year we surprised him for Father's Day with a way of making mini pies whenever he wants to with the Tovolo Pie Pops maker.
What I like best about the pie pops it that the mini size can help with portion and impulse control. With mini pies you can make as much or a little as you need. Then there isn't an entire pie sitting around wanting to be eaten.
The mini size helps with portion control, so you can have a smaller portion of pie and don't eat too much, very helpful if you have dads or moms watching their waistline.

- Egg white (optional but helps with browning)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- Prepare your favorite pie crust.
- Note: To make the pie pops even faster start with a pre-made pie crust.
- If you are going to make pie filling, prepare the pie filling next.
- Cut the pie crust using the Tovolo cut and press tool, a circle biscuit cutter, glass or jar lid less than 2 inches or any other fun cookie cutter shape e.g. heart, butterfly, flower, shamrock, square or rectangle.

Vegan and Gluten Free Pie Pop Recipes
Try Vegan or Gluten Free Pie Pops
So people who follow vegan or gluten free diets do not feel left out, I researched both vegan and gluten free options for making the pie pops.
Many pie crusts recipes are made without eggs and milk. Butter or vegetable shortening can be used in place of lard to make vegan pie pop options.
For gluten free recipes there are many other flours that can be used in place of wheat flour. Try using brown rice flour, amaranth flour, almond flour, gluten-free oat flour, almond meal, potato starch, tapioca flour, millet flour or coconut blend flour.
Many of the gluten free pie crust recipes end up using a blend of gluten-free flours.
