Apple Shaped Mini Pies

School is almost 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.
