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.
How to make…
1. 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)
2. Make sure you stir everything around getting the apples nice and coated.
