Apple Shaped Mini Pies
out and my little ones and I celebrated today by making some miniature apple-shaped pies for the big kids’ after school snack. We had just finished reading A Was Once an Apple Pie, and it seemed like a good idea.
I went for ease rather than taste. I grabbed some store bought pie crusts from the refrigerated section and a can of apple pie filling. I have an amazing apple pie recipe, but I knew that I’d be baking with three helpers age 5 and under so I opted to keep things simple. I’m glad I did. We had a lot of fun together.
When they cooled we slipped them in little bags to give to the big kids.
While the taste could be improved simply by using a real recipe, the pies turned out great. They looked good, and my family gobbled them up. They were really easy to make.
My little ones and I had so much fun that we’ll definitely do this again soon. It was a great activity.
