A few months ago I was thinking it would be great to make a portable apple pie. As I was making them they totally brought me back to my childhood, reminding me of the Hostess pies and store brand pies we used to eat twenty or thirty years ago (this makes me sound so old:). Sugary sweet; too sweet.
One of the great thing about these apple pies is that they don’t have a huge list of artificial ingredients! You can control the amount of sugar you use in them. Plus, they taste great. The pie crust is nice and flaky.
The Verdict: This is a nice little treat, and is a portable way to eat an apple pie. It’s perfect for a little dessert appetizer. They freeze well, too! If you get an apple pie pocket with too much pie crust and end up with a dry portion, put some glaze on it (recipe below).
Thanks Jolie and Joshie for your help in making the bites!
If you have leftover apples, you can throw them into an apple pie smoothie.
