Cinnamon Sugar Mini Apple Pies

Every now and then you need some external influence for your cooking.  That's probably why you're here looking up recipes on our blog. Welcome Friend!  Here at 2Brokebakers we also learn from others.  Especially the TV show The Chew.  If you haven't seen this lovely show, its time to start.  With a great set of hosts who hilariously banter and amazing recipes, its a sure win.  And thats where we got the idea for these Cinnamon Sugar Mini Apple Pies.  They're bite-sized and delicious and you'll have to walk away before you eat them all up single-handedly.

Start by peeling four Granny Smith Apples.

Cut the apples into some pieces.

 In a medium sauce pan add 2 tablespoons of butter.  Once melted add all the apple slices.

Add 1/2 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, the zest of 1 lemon and 1/8 cup flour.

Once cooked pull off the stove. Let sit.
On a floured surface lay a pre-made pie crust and cut out circles.  Do this with both pie crusts in the box.

Ashley's tip: We used a small bowl but a cookie cutter would also work.  Find what's available in the kitchen.  

Put a small amount of the apple mix on a crust. It's about a tablespoon of apple mix.

Fold over and use a fork to seal the edges together.

Flash fry in a pan of oil.  Once pulled out of the oil place on a paper towel.  After plotted dry, but not completely cold, place the mini apple pie into a container of cinnamon sugar mix  (1/2 sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon).

These are definitely better warm so consume immediately.  For a more tart flavor add the juice of the lemon as well.  For a sweeter flavor skip the lemon altogether.
