Lolli Pies From the Smirnoff Summer Entertaining Extravaganza

One of the first recipes I will post from the my Smirnoff Summer Entertaining Extravaganza was the talk of the party. Lolli Pies. I cant say I deserve the credit for the conception of these treats. That would be this genius who's being touted all over the blogo sphere.I have seen some bloggers recreate these with canned fillings, but none of that at Coco Cooks. I decided to use the seasons bounty with fresh figs, pineapple and Blueberry fillings.
Its funny how grown folks are transformed to happy kids when presented with food on a stick. Couples fed each other pops, and others licked the sticks clean. Lolli Pies make everyone happy.

Lolli Pies
Egg Whites
Store Purchased Pie crust
Lollipop sticks
Parchment paper
Baking sheets
Pastry brush
Use any store purchased pie crust for ease and uniformity. Take a small cookie cutter and cut your circles.

On a parchment lined baking sheet Line our pops and indent sticks in center.Preheat oven to 375 F.

Fill. Take a broken piece of stick and press edges to seal.If sticks are to long break in half.

Once sealed, brush tops with egg whites. If you don't you wont get the glossy finish.
Bake at 375F for 10-15 minutes or until golden.Let cool and display in florist foam for presentation or package individually.

Fig Filling
(This recipe is large and made 2 jars of preserves without cornstarch, as well as filling for pops).
2 pints green figs
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch dilutes with water
Wash and quarter your figs. In a bowl allows figs, sugar, and Cointreau to macerate overnight.
Next day in a heavy bottomed sauce pan, heat the figs and sugar to a boil . Cook down for about 10-15 minutes until figs start to break down. Take an immersion blender and puree after you have removed from heat. Let cool.
For pop filling add cornstarch and water solution to the amount of fig filling you plan to use . Cook until thickened and translucent. Cool and fill.

Blueberry Filling

1 pint blueberries

1 cup sugar

1/4-1/2 cup water

2 tbsp cornstarch

In a heavy bottomed saucepan combine washed berries, sugar, and water. Bring to a boil until berries burst and all sugar is dissolved.Add 2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with a bit of water to the blueberries. Stir until thickened and cornstarch solution is translucent. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Fill pops.

Pineapple Filling

1 pineapple peeled, cored,and chopped into small pieces

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups water

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 tsp Jamaican Rum Extract

In a heavy bottomed sauce pan bring pineapple water, and sugar to a boil. Boil for 10 -15 minutes. Remove from heat and take an immersion blender to puree. Place back on heat. Stir until thickened . Add Jamaican Rum extract. Allow to cool and fill.

Those are just too cute, Courtney. It is a great idea for a party. (Though, sometimes just making a whole pie is too much for me, lol).

I love miniature versions like this because it means you can sample more food without filling up as quickly. The fillings sound delicious!

Hi Courtney,
These lolli-pies are wonderful...I want to adapt them for kids that need to be gluten-free as I need to be.

I finally had a chance to post Part I of my images and my take on our Foodbuzz TRU dining experience.
Part II tomorrow...

Nice to meet you and hope we get to meet again soon. Love to talk to you.
