Pinterested in Mini-Apple Pie

If you love to gawk at food as much as I do, you MUST be on Pinterest. Ranging from delectable caprese stuffed burgers to scrumptious cup brownies, Pinterest is the modern day cookbook. With all of these dishes posted on my board, I wanted to see if some of these recipes were as good as they looked. More importantly, are these recipes even doable for the average cook? The first recipe I wanted to test was Mini-Apple Pies. I'm sure you’ve seen pictures of this mouthwatering dessert all over Pinterest. If you haven't, you’re in for a treat-literally!

Mini-Apple Pies adaptedfrom Little Bit Funky Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes, Makes 28 pies

Ingredients

8 cups of apples (about 8 medium apples) 1/4 cup flour 1 1/2 cups sugar 4 teaspoons cinnamon 2 teaspoons nutmeg (optional) 4 tablespoons butter 4 pie crusts (2 boxes of Pillsbury pie crusts)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Grease muffin pan and set aside.
  3. After peeling and coring the apples, cut into small 1/2 inch pieces and place in a large bowl.
  4. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  5. Mix dry ingredients with apples. Be sure to coat all the apple bits evenly.
  6. Carefully unroll piecrusts. Make sure they are room temperature or they will crack (you can microwave them for a few seconds if they aren't.)
  7. Cut several circles out of piecrusts. (Mason jar tops or cups work best)
  8. Place crusts into muffin pan and fill with apple filling.
  9. Divide butter into 28 equal pieces, one for each pie.
  10. Place a piece of butter on top of each pie and cover with leftover dough.
  11. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

That’s it! Now, you too can master this Pinterest legend. After attempting this recipe, I have to say it was tedious work. So unless you have a helping hand, count on spending a fun hour peeling and coring apples by yourself. Not the best when you’re craving the sweet treat! Overall, the outcome was a success! These bite-size deserts were perfectly sweet and moist. (None of that fake filling you may find in bakeries.)

So, if you want to send your Valentine a delicious surprise, or if you’re drooling just looking at these pictures, this recipe is a must!
