    Mini apple pies... If you've been around a while you know that I like to make some sort of dessert or treat for my husband to take to work with him on Mondays. Food is my love language. I am not a diet friendly friend. It's just a small way that I feel I can help him with his work day...he and all his coworkers have a super long meeting on Mondays and...well, it's Monday...how can dessert not help that? It gives me a good excuse to try new recipes and now all of his coworkers expect and look forward to what I will make and send in. I've been meaning to document what I have tried here...but it's taken weeks for me to start...so we'll just start here. :) This week I made mini apple pies for him to take...and I made a large batch so that I could keep some too! This recipe makes 24 mini pies but you could easily halve it to make 12. Start by cutting up eight cups of apples into small 1/2in bits. Mix the apples with: 12 tablespoons of flour 1 1/2c of sugar 4 heaping teaspoons of cinnamon 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg (depending on how much you like nutmeg...you could also leave it out) You will also need: 4 tablespoons of chilled butter cut into 24 equal portions. two boxes of pilsbury pie crusts (four chilled NOT frozen crusts) Make sure you stir everything around getting the apples nice and coated. Unroll your first pie crust and cut several circles out. Continue this until you have enough crusts. I found that a wide mouth mason jar ring worked perfectly. Line each cup of your muffin tin with a tiny pie crust. I found that pinching the edge of the dough around the top edge of the tin and making a hammock of sorts worked really well. You can then gently fill the crusts with your apple mixture and push the crusts down the rest of the way. You should be able to fill until slightly mounded. Then take your equally divided butter... and put a dab on each pie. Cover as desired with left over dough. Brush with melted butter and bake at 400 for 18 to 22 minutes. I started checking in on mine at 10 minutes and checked every two until they were perfect. And YUM! They are the perfect size and I am looking forward to having the extras with my coffee in the morning. Yes, for breakfast, there is fruit in there! Enjoy making these! It's the perfect excuse to head out to an apply orchard and pick some fresh apples!

    Mini apple pies -- awesome thanksgiving idea!! I used the extra pie crust to weave a lattice on top of each one. They are delicious!!!! Both mini pies were much easier to make in a silicone pan, they just popped right out!

    individual mini apple pies : Looks like they'd be TOTALLY yummy ! I love to bake and have done plenty of it, but never thought of using a muffin tin and making individual apple pies. You could do this for ANY kind of pie !

Eagle Brand - Sweet Condensed Milk (which when boiled in the can for 8 hours) produces a thick caramel. Do NOT let the boiling water go below the level of the can or it will explode! It's a mess you will never forget. Use your crockpot, on HIGH, 8 hours of boiling. Cool before opening or it will explode then, too! In other words, make it a day in advance, let it get to room temperature.
