Mini Apple Pie A’La Apple

apple pies

So, now that I’ve concored the mini strawberry cheesecake bites, I’m on to another party-friendly Fancy, simple and healthy (okay, healthier) than their larger, much doughier counterparts.  Traditional apple pies are great, but when you’re looking to change things up a bit these mini versions (inside the apple!) are fun to make and pretty impressive looking if you ask me…



6 medium apples (I like fuji or gala)

For each apple you will need:
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tbsp all purpose flour
1/4 tsp powdered cinnamon
Cut off lids from each apple. With a small sharp knife and a small spoon cave the apples forming bowls and set the chopped pulp aside. To avoid the apples from getting dark, you can add a few drops of lemon juice.

Mix the ingredients and sprinkle over the reserved apple pulp. Toss with a spoon and fill the apple bowls.
And now for the flower tops…
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup corn starch
1tbsp sugar
100g butter, cold
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
Put all ingredients in the jar of a food processor and mix only until it forms a ball. If necessary, add a few drops of cold water. Don’t over mix. If you want do do it manually, mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the butter and rub the mixture with your hands until you have a crumbled texture. Add the egg and  mix until it comes together into a ball. If necessary, add a few drops of water. Do not over mix.
Roll out dough and cut flowers with a cookie cutter, make some holes to release vapor while baking.
Carefully place a flower over each apple. Don’t try to mold the dough, it will be firm and will break. The heat of the oven will take care of that 😉
Bake at 370°F in a baking pan lined with parchment paper until they are tender and the dough is lightly golden (about 40 minutes).
Serve warm or cool, lightly sprinkled with powdered sugar.
