I adore the Crazy Cooking Challenge - it's is such a great way to see amazing variations of the same recipe. I can't wait to see what this month's apple pie challenge has in store!
I decided to create a bite-sized apple pie with as little sugar as possible. I'm definitely a "dinner girl," which means that by the time dessert comes around, I rarely have any room left for all of the sweet treats. Small portions are absolutely perfect because I get to enjoy just enough of the sweet treats. Another great thing about these little pies is that they don't have a ton of calories, so you can feel good about adding a little whipped cream or ice cream!
Best dishes and yummy dreams!
Skinny Mini Bite-Sized Apple Pies
Makes 16 little pies
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
2-3 Tbsp. brown sugar (2 if you like a little tartness, 3 if you prefer sweet!)
1 tsp. apple pie spice
1/2 c. water
2 9-in. refrigerated pie crusts
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
1. Heat a dutch oven over medium heat and add cornstarch, brown sugar, apple pie spice, and water.
2. Bring the mixture to a simmer and add the apples.
3. Cover the dutch oven and allow the apples to cook for 30-40 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, spray a mini muffin tin with nonstick spray and unroll the 2 pie crusts.
5. Use something with a 2 1/2 to 3 inch diameter to make the mini pie crusts (I used the top of a sippy cup) and press them in the muffin tins.
8. Bake for 20-30 minutes at 350 degrees.
