Kids In The Kitchen-Mini Apple Pies

Well this post is going to look freakily familiar ... though I haven't actually "posted" it before just something like it, only a couple days ago! Look I am OBSESSED with those mini pop pie that I found over at Bakerella. The first batch I made was for the church bake sale and then the next day hubby talked us into makin a second batch but this time Lu whip up some homemade apple-pie filling I found over at I Blame My Mother (Oh it was fabulous!) and then we also used the left over cherry pie filling so we had alot of pies! This time instead of making the pops we just made our pies "mini" and used the largest sized bisquit cutter I have (I don't know the correct messurments, but I know its not HUGE) So here its is... I love this picture, it took a LONG time before Lu could actually peel it, so if you let your child do this part, remember to be PATIENT!
Chop the apples (I will admit my chopper didn't work quite like i'd planned, so I did cut them by hand too!) Pour in the MELTED butter
In goes cinnimon .... MmMmMm Lu put a Little more in than the recipe called for :) thats ok we like cinnimon!
And stir it up .... here is the filling recipe used from Sara
2 or 3 apples, peeled and chopped, we used Golden Delicious which is a great cooking apple
2 Tbs melted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Pie Crust - we used store bought, hence the "easy" in the title.
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1/8 tsp cinnamon
2 or 3 tsp apple juice
We did EVERYTHING EXCEPT add the apple juice ... only bc I forgortThen we prepared the pied which you can find the recipe on my previous post here

And here they are in all they're GLORY! So good, the Cherry pie ones ... the juice leaked out so you see those more, but the apple pies LOOKED and tasted perfect and no leakage!!! Have fun these are great go try them!!!

  1. Aren't these great!! No cooking for us this week. The kids are not happy about that!
