This is a fun treat to make for a party, and can be easy if you are use jam you already have on hand and pre-made pie crust. They’ll definitely be a hit, and kids would have fun helping make these!

I used some cherry jam I had already made and just love the tart taste with the sweet pie crust.  Any jam would do, really, but give this combo a try! As you can see, you don’t need many ingredients. (I was making these for a party and short on time, so I used pre-made piecrust…. shhhhhhhh.)

I used a 2 1/2″ cookie cutter and cut 32 circles out for 16 final turnover pops.

Place your sticks on half of the circles then top with approx 1 teaspoon of jam.

    I made these with a friend of mine last night. They were delicious and fun to make. We only used sticks on the first couple of dozen. We found that the sticks we were using didn’t set very well in the tart.

      Oh I’m so glad you made them! Aren’t they delicious? You’re right that the sticks aren’t necessary. Just an extra dose of cuteness when serving them at a party. As for keeping the sticks in, I find that if I crimp my dough right up next to the sticks on both sides, that really helps them stay put. Either way, they don’t last long!
