Well tomorrow is Thanksgiving, but we are having it today. That way all the kids can be involved. I have been up for hours getting everything ready so we can have dinner before hubby goes to work. Typical right mom cooks while the kids play, and dad sleeps.
Anyway yesterday I made the cutest mini apple pies. The Mini part wasn’t intentional, but it seems my pie plate has grown legs, and run away. The last time I seen it, it was being used as a barbie kiddie pool. Gotta love kids right?
Well these Mini pies turned out really great. I wanted to share the recipe with you all. I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did.
Here is the recipe I used for the pie crust. This was my first time making apple pie, and it was so simple and easy to follow. ——> pie crust recipe here.
10 med sized apples
Cinnamon to taste
2 tablespoons of Vanilla
1/2- 3/4 cups of brown sugar
2 slices of freash lemon, squeezed.
Put apples, lemon juice, and vanilla in a pot. Turn on medium heat, and stir while it heats up. Once mixture is hot stir in sugar, and add cinnamon. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Keep stirring! Once the apple start to break apart, take off heat and leave to cool.
Preheat oven to 350
Instead of making one big crust I made 9 small circles to fit in muffin pans. Make sure to butter, and flour your muffin pan so it dosent stick. Spoon in filling, then cut dough strips for the top. Place the strips on top in a criss cross fashion.
Bake about 30 mins, checking frequently so they dont burn. There you have it. Perfect size, and uber delicious homemade apple pies 🥧
