Apple Pie Minis

This is one of the easiest recipes ever, and yet it is so super adorable and delicious that it makes you look oh, so brilliant!

2 granny smith apples
1 1/2 Tbsp flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 egg
refrigerated pie crust, room temp

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Peel and cut the apples into small cubes. Add the sugar, flour, salt and cinnamon. Mix together and set aside.

Flour your countertop and roll out the dough. I had a a 3 1/2" cookie cutter that was a perfect size, but really any shape or size would work. Hearts would be cute, huh? You'll need two for each pie.

Place some of the apple mixture in the center of half of the cutouts. It's tempting to put a lot, but you have to control yourself or the top won't fit.

Beat the egg with a little water to make an egg wash. Using your finger put a little wash around the edge of the bottom circle of dough. Put the top layer of dough on each little pie and crimp the edges with a fork to seal.

Use a pastry brush to egg wash the tops.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve warm with ice cream (it's a must)!
