Welcome the fall with Mini Apple Pies

If you like apple pie, and have a cookie cutter, you’ll love these little mini’s.  I found a recipe in the September issue of  Better Homes and Gardens  that inspired me to make these.  Their recipe was actually for Apple Pie Pops.  Very cute… but not very practical.  I loved the concept of the pie pops, but knew they wouldn’t last long on a stick, so why bother with the sticks?

The recipe for the Apple Pie Pops can be found on page 212.  I used BHG’s recipe for the concept, but tweaked it with my own apple pie making skills.  I did pre-cook the filling like the recipe suggested.  Otherwise, the apples wouldn’t have a chance to cook completely before the little crusts were finished baking, and I veered off course from their recipe by making my own double pie crust from scratch. 

These are great little dessert’s that will travel well.  They would be perfect for fall gatherings.  We enjoyed our’s with our family after a great dinner. 

Can you imagine them filled with peach, raspberry, blackberry, grape, cherry?
