Last night my padres joined us for a pre-Thanksgiving dinner. This year we will be spending Thanksgiving with Nana and Pa so Grandma and Poppa joined us for some yummy, homemade broccoli/cauliflower/cheese soup, accordion potatoes, and these yummy, mini apple pies.
This is a really ingenious idea. Personal mini apple pies. Great portion control … unless of course, you eat like 4 at a time. Fun for the kids too. There are a couple steps – bake apples, make dough, chill dough, roll and cut dough and then bake – which can seem at first a bit overwhelming but once you do it you realize they are easy steps to do. You can do one and go to work on something else and come back and finish that step and start another. And then go do something else again.
And I actually found these less intimidating to make, the dough part, than an actual standard pie (which I’ve only done once). I am always nervous at the thought of making homemade pie crust and struggling with the kneading and rolling. But when you are just making smaller versions … well it just seemed more doable to me.
And they turned out great!
