For the love of Fall!

I love fall.  It’s absolutely my favorite season.  I had my fall decorations up on September 1st after texting my friend Julie and asking her if it was too early.  She sent a smiley face back and said that she had just started decorating her house with fall decorations too.

I love apple cider candles, apple picking, apple pie (do you see a theme here), halloween candy, pumpkin decorations, football (GO PACK GO), leggings with boots, scarves, and comfy sweaters, brisk nights with beautiful sunsets and the smell of leaves in the air.  My list could go on and on but you get the picture.  The same weekend that I decorated the house with fall decorations, I made these little gems, mini apple pies.  Brian had a couple friends over for an afternoon of football and appetizers and I have to say, these were a hit and SO easy to make.  The boys ate theirs with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce while Makenzie and I ate them as is no additions needed.

Peel & Core 5 green apples, cut into 1/2 pieces.

Mix the apples with:
6 Tablespoons flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
Make sure all the apples are coated well with mixture

Next you need one box of Pillsbury pie crust
Unroll the dough and cut out circles
{I used a medium circular mold, similar to a cookie cutter}
Do the same with the second pie crust
{Be sure to save the scraps from both}

Grease muffin tin
Line muffin tin with the circle pie crusts and pinch the sides for it to fit nicely
Image

Add the apple mixture to the crusts
{remember the apples will shrink slightly}
Add a small piece of butter to each tin

Image

Top each pie with the scraps from leftover crust {this does not have to be perfect}
When complete, brush the tops with melted butter and bake at 400 for 18-22 minutes
{I took mine out after 15 minutes, when they started turning brown}

Enjoy them with ice cream or on their own.  These definitely will not disappoint your crowd, they are delicious!
