Mini Apple Pie

It was a baking and college football kind of Saturday for me. Since I love autumn, I have been looking up some fall receipts on Pinterest. I found this receipt and I wanted to try it right away.  These little caramel apple pies are the cutest thing to take for a party or to give away for holiday gifts. They are bite size and not as many calories compared to eating a slice of regular sized apple pie. They are so cute and tasty, and I hope you guys try this receipt.

1 box of Pillsbury pie crust (or any brand you prefer)
2 cups of peeled Granny Smith
2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
10-15 Caramel cubes (varies in number)
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
egg wash (1 egg and 1 tablespoon of water)
crystal sugar
Step 1: Combine apple cubes, cinnamon, lemon juice, flour, and sugar.
Step 2: Roll out dough and use a three inch cutter or glass jar to make the circles.

Step 3: Spoon tablespoon scoops of the apple filling onto half the circle cutouts.
Step 4: Now place the caramel cubes around the filling. Cutting the store bought cubes into four smaller cubes may be necessary. Do not over fill!
Step 5: Place a circle cut out over the filling and press down all around the sides. Use the end of a fork to form the lines on the edges.

Step 6: Spread the egg wash over the top of the mini pie, and then sprinkle crystal sugar. The egg wash acts as a glue for the sugar and dough and gives the mini pie a little glow.

Step 7: Preheat over on 425 degrees. Cook for 15 minutes and you will have tasteful and cute mini apple pies.

Thanks for reading. Hope you guys enjoy! :)
