My most recent foodie TV show obsession is Unique Sweets,
which features innovative treats made around the U.S. and usually includes
the creation process of the most popular item(s). They don't typically give the recipes,
but they do give the ingredients and most are complicated enough that I wouldn't try to guess.
I should say, all with the exception of a
recent episode featuring, Suck It Sweets, based in California.
They basically make very uniquely flavored gourmet popsicles
and one pop seemed easy enough and sounded delicious enough, that I
decided to give it a whirl - a pop that tastes exactly like peach pie/cobbler. Below is a simple recipe inspired by their creation.
It makes a popsicle taste a little more grown-up, not that it matters to me.
Peach Pie Pops
Recipe for peach pie pop with chunks of cinnamony peaches throughout and rolled in honey crumble. By Marysmaking
Prep time: - Cook time: - Total time: Yield:12S
For Peach Pops
- 6-7 Peaches, cut into bite-sized pieces (peel on)
- juice from half a lemon
- 1/4 cup (heaping) brown sugar
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 t nutmeg
- 1 t cinnamon
For Honey Crumble
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 cups whole wheat flour or all-purpose
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/8 cup honey
Put all ingredients into a pot and cook on low for 5-10 minutes if peaches are very ripe or 10-15 minutes if peaches are firmer.
You want peaches to be soft, but not mushy.
Let cool completely. Spoon mixture into molds and add sticks, then stick in freezer
Should be completely frozen in 8 hours (depending on freezer).
For Honey Crumble
Combine all ingredients until mixture sticks together like wet sand.
Form mixture loosely on baking sheet and bake 12-15 minutes at 350F.
Let cool then break mixture into crumbles.
To roll pops in honey crumble, let them sit out at room temperature, so that they release from the molds.
The pops should be slightly soft, but not melting. Roll side of pop in water and then roll in crumble and press gently onto the pop gently.
Once pops have been rolled, put them back in the freezer on a cookie sheet and let the crumble and pop re-freeze.
Place pops in sealed bags for storage.
