These are done like cinnamon rolls. The dough is rolled out and
A great idea for Valentines- dessert pops from Pie Pops
And not to mention , animal shapes which would be a hit with little kids
Using jam in the pops from Vancouver
and even cake pops
All of the above use skewers for the pops and would be a fun thing for kids!
Pizza pop craze has hit Calgary and apparently pies are the hot item for this year! Now my Mom would love this, as she was so skilled in making pastries. Her butter tarts were legendary!!
Here are two dough recipes from my friend for her pizza pops or Calzone
The traditional dough recipe:
Soften 1 Tablespoon in 1 cup warm water and 1 tsp. of sugar. Since I use the traditional yeast, this step needs to be done or the yeast will not dissolve. This step is not necessary if using the quick raising yeast.
3 cups of flour
1 Tablespoon of oil and salt
Bake on top rack for 20 –25 minutes for 400 degrees F
The quick raise method is
2cups of flour
2 tsp. of Baking powder
½ tsp. of salt
1 cup of cottage cheese
¼ cup of milk
