Here’s an easy popsicle recipe to make during the last days of summer. You might already have all of the ingredients at home.
Here’s what you need to make Strawberry Pie Popsicles:
- Plain yogurt
- 1 jar of jam (smooth seems to work better than chunky)
- 12 graham cracker sheets
- 1 stick of butter
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- Popsicle molds and sticks
I used this recipe from Food52 to make a graham cracker crust. It was simple — I used a blender to grind up 12 graham cracker sheets into fine crumbs. In addition, I browned the butter on the stove before combining it with the graham cracker crumbs. I then added 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the crust mixture.
Browning butter takes a little more time but is well worth it—browning intensifies the butter’s beautiful flavor and adds some nuttiness. After your crust is baked, cool it and crumble it up into a bowl. Spoon in a thin layer of jam, a thicker layer of yogurt and a thin layer of graham cracker crust crumble into each popsicle mold. Repeat until you fill up each popsicle mold then insert a flat popsicle stick, freeze until firm, then enjoy!
May these last days of summer be slow and enjoyable for you and your family before the fall rush begins!
