PinterTest Kitchen 2: A Bad Apple in Every Bunch (of Mini Apple Pies)
Welcome to the second edition of the PinterTest Kitchen!
A place to document your Pinterest adventures.
The one’s that have no alibi.
I pinned these cute little mini apple pies a few weeks ago and was itching to try them.
But unfortunately, they had ZERO alibi.
But I think it’s my fault.
Too much butter?
The wrong apples?
A spinning headache.
A big mushy mess that set our smoke detector off.
Here goes nothing.
2 tart apples
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp melted butter
2 tsp cinnamon
1 store bought pie crust
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Unroll one refrigerated crust and place on floured surface.
P.S. The store bought pie crust is my favorite ingredient.
Real, from-scratch crusts give me severe anxiety.
Coat with melted butter.
Sprinkle cinnamon + sugar mixture on top.
Cut crust into 8 pieces, about 1″ wide.
Cut apple into 8 equal pieces.
Roll each piece individually, sugar-side touching the apple.
Coat one side in butter. Dip coated side in cinnamon + sugar mixture.
Lay each mini apple pie on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
End result, pre-fire alarm, should look something like this:
Bake at 425 degrees for 13-15 minutes.
Have 8-year-old with dishrag ready to silence alarm.
The original recipe was much prettier.
She used red apples.
My Granny Smiths were mushy and nasty.
I’m thinking I should have peeled the apple?
And used less butter.
Also the crust baked unevenly. Flaky in all the wrong ways.
I think I’m better off buying TJ’s Apple Blossoms.
And just adding a cinnamon + sugar topping.
Same diff. Less noise.
