Mini Apple Pie A La Mode

Mini Apple Pies A La ModeAfter a few days of unpacking and cleaning, things are finally looking and feeling like home. We invited Stephen’s brother over for dinner this past Sunday to enjoy our new space with us. I asked him what he’d like for dessert and he said something involving either ice cream or apple pie. So I broke out my Breville mini pie maker and went to work. I was a little unsure about how to make the filling tender, so I precooked it for 10-15 minutes until the apples began to soften. I scooped the filling inside, cooked the pies for about 10 minutes and they were ready to eat! These little guys are simple, delicious and absolutely perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

  4. I’ve found mini pie makers to be tricky to use. They use to burn my pie edges like the ones here but now I discovered this clever tool. Now I bake golden pies almost every time, no more burning. Some of you can get the mini pie tool for free here. I love my pie maker now and have learn how to bake pumpkin pies in it. Something the manual said we couldn’t do.
    Did you know you can use sliced bread for the crust? It works pretty well.
