So every Wednesday, starting in October, I have been a part of a Tea Party/Bible Study/Book Club on The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis. This is different from my book club and the Book Club Picks I have been reviewing (and desperately need to catch up on). The first week we had Cederberg Tea Company Rooibos + Ginger Tea, Cranberry-Spice Scones with Maple Cream, Cucumber-Four Peppercorn Goat Cheese Canapés, Ham and Cheese Tea Sandwiches, Fotina & Pork Puffed Pastry, and Mini Apple Pies.
I have been posting the recipes from the first meeting, but am ending on the last thing we had during that session: Mini Apple Pies
Today’s recipe is one that I’ve shared before, but made mini. It an easy recipe and a delicious one. After all, who can resist pie?
- Pre-made Pie Dough
- 1/2 Cup – 1 Cup of All-Purpose Flour
- 6-7 Granny Smith Apples peeled, and cut into slices
- 1 Cup of White Sugar
- 1 Cup of Brown Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons of Butter
- Peel and slice the apples. When cutting up the apples, make sure to remove the hard pieces where the seed grows along with any spots or blemishes.
- Preheat the oven to 375°
- Combine the apples, with the brown and white sugar.
- Add the flour and cinnamon, mixing them all together.
- Roll out the dough and using a cookie cutter or small bowl, cut round circles out-large enough to fill a cupcake/muffin pan.
- Lay the apples down on the dough in the pan.
- Chop the two tablespoons of butter and put a little in each mini pie.
- Place the second ball of dough down and roll it out into a large circle, cutting it to create a lattice top.
- Add a dash of cinnamon and sugar on top.
- Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
These were delicious and a great final piece to our tea time. After all, as Mr. Woodhouse says:
