Sweet pie dough
Place butter, sugar, & salt in electric mixer with paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed for one minute. Add cream cheese & mix one minute. Sift in dry ingredients & gently work in by hand into butter mixture to break up bigger pieces. Continue mixing on medium low while gradually adding vinegar & cold water until just combined. Do not over-mix. Wrap & chill for at least one hour.

Apple Filling
In medium saucepan bring first 10 ingredients to light simmer on medium low heat. Simmer for 15-20 minutes on low heat uncovered. Combine cornstarch and water to make a slurry and slowly pour into apple mixture while stirring. Let cook 1-2 additional minutes. Take off heat and cool.

To build pie lollipops You will need
Prepare egg wash by mixing 1 yolk, ¼ cup milk, 1/8 tsp sugar, and 1/8 tsp salt (kosher). Prepare a half sheet pan with parchment paper. Roll out chilled pie dough onto floured surface 1/8” thick. Cut 12 circles with 3” round cutter & place onto sheet pan. Place lollipop sticks starting from the top of each circle firmly, but not completely through, each pie circle. Place 1 tsp of apple filling in the center of each dough circle, leaving a rim around to outside of each one. Freeze for 15-20 minutes. Roll out 12 more 3”-pie circles. Brush the egg wash on the rim of dough surrounding the filling and cover and seal with the remaining circles. Gently press the edges together with fork. Brush tops with egg wash and sprinkle with raw sugar. Chill for 1 hour. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
