Hey Everybody! Welcome to Day 4 of Christmas with A Little Bit of Life! It has been so great so far this week writing posts for you guys every day, and I want y’all to know that I super grateful for you all this Christmas. I hope your Christmas Eve’s are very Merry! But before you guys go too crazy with the Christmas Spirit, here is a quick little Christmas Treat you can make easily, last minute for your family and friends’. Here we go!!
Mini. Apple. Pies.
Who doesn’t love apple pies, especially at Christmas, with a little bit of ice cream on the side? Well I know I do at least, but recently my mom made these mini apple pies for us one night after supper and they were absolutely DIVINE. They are the perfect combination of flaky crust, gooey apples and cinnamonny sweetness that everyone craves at Christmas in little, like 2-3 bite portions.And they litterally take like 15 minutes to make. Just Beautiful.
Here is what you will need:
1 package of Pillsbury Crescent Dough
1 can of Apple Pie filling
Brown Sugar (optional)
For the Icing:
3 tbsp of Powdered Sugar
1-2 tbsp of Milk (depending on how thick or thin you want it.)
How To Make It:
1. Start off by preheating your oven to 350F, then grab a muffin tin and give it a good spray down with some Non-Stick Baking Spray.
2. Crack open that package of crescent dough and cut out all the little individual triangles along the little perforations. Place the triangles of crescent dough in the muffin tins with the middle/widest part on the bottom and the ends coming out of the tin.
3. Scoop a small/medium (depending on how much filling you like in your mini-pies) amount of pie filling into the bottom of each muffin tin, on top of the dough.
4. Sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon and brown sugar on top of your filling. (You can do it alot or a little but that is up to you!)
5. Grab the ends of the triangles hanging outside each tin and fold them over, so they are laying on top of your filling, creating the little individual pies!!
6. Put them in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown on top.
7. Once removed from oven, let cool before putting icing on top.
Now For The Icing:
Add your milk to the powered sugar and mix until it is smooth (no more lumps). You can add less or more milk depending on how thick you want it. More Milk: Thinner. Less Milk= thicker. A little goes a long way.
And there you go!! Bundles of delicious goodness that you can whip up for you families and friends on this Christmas Eve! (Or Santa) It’s great for parties too, anytime of the year really.
