Apple Pie-lets

I saw this modified version of an apple pie on Food Network from my favorite chef, Giada.  I love apple pies but despise all the fuss it takes to make them.  It just takes too long.  This recipe is a perfect way to get the great taste in a no-fuss and fast way.

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced into eighths
1 T cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
1 9-inch roll of store bought pie crust, thawed but chilled
whipped cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Toss the apples in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar to coat well.
  3. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes until dark brown and caramelized.
  5. Meanwhile, cut the pie crust into 8 discs using a 3 inch cookie cutter (I like to experiment with fun shapes).
  6. Prick the top of the discs with a fork several times.
  7. Bake on parchment paper-covered baking sheet for 8-10 minutes.  You can also place them in muffin cups instead of having them in a disc form.  (Note: Make sure to cook them separate from the apples because the apples creates too much moisture for the pastry.)
  8. Layer the pie-lets together: Crust, apple, whipped cream, sprinkles of cinnamon

    It’s like you learn my head! You gaze to understand lots close to this, as if you composed this manual inside something like that. I have faith that simply may employ several Percentage to be able to tension the message property somewhat, but other than that, that is great blog. An excellent examine. I am going to be back again.
