These little pies were so much fun to make.. so EASY…and so delicious. They went together in minutes and before long… we had fresh hot apple pie for dessert! Start to finish was maybe 20-25 minutes.
I wasn’t sure if I should peel the apple or leave the skin on, as the recipe didn’t specify. So I left them on…I liked the texture and color it added. Next time I’ll try without so I can compare the taste, though. I also wondered if the apple would be hard and uncooked baking such a short time, but they were very soft and tender, the crust crispy and golden.
I served them warm with ice cream….2 little pies a piece was just a perfect size dessert. I made only half a batch as I wasn’t sure how they would taste cold or reheated.
I still don’t know…… as they were gone in a flash.
But my kitchen smelled great all day…. apples and cinnamon…making me wish I had made the full batch!
