Mini Apple Pies
A coworker sent me this completely adorable, super simple, all edible apple pies and I had to test it out immediately!

I added my own small spin and wanted to provide a few tips and tricks I learned along the way. Only 4 Ingredients!
- Granny Smith Apples
- Can of Apple Pie Filling
- 2 Packets of Maple Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal
- Refrigerated Pie Crust
(Cinnamon to taste)
Start by slicing the tops off of your apples. The recipe mentioned gutting them with a knife and spoon and I started a few with that. I am either not coordinated or not very strong but I switched to a melon baller and it seemed to go much quicker. :)
After scooping out the apples, mix together in a large bowl the can of apple pie filling, packets of oatmeal, sprinkle in some cinnamon and a half cup of hot water.
Fill up the apples to the very top!
Time to roll out the pie crust. The lattice work is so cute but does take some time. The recipe calls for 30 minute of work using 4 apples but I had a whole bag and it took me about 2 hours. eeek!
I added a small amount of water to the pan (make sure it has high sides because the apples like to roll around), popped them in the oven for about 30 minutes. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and oh my goodness, you have a great healthy fall dessert that makes the whole house smell delicious.
My end result!
2 thumbs up for simplicity, inexpensive ingredients, and big adorableness factor.
