apple pie bites

As our final act in our fall filled weekend we went to the kitchen once more to make these apple pie bites that Kerri had heard about. She did most of the heavy lifting while I did such difficult things as peeling apples. And the majority of these photos? Taken by Letty herself. And I must say she's getting quite good wouldn't you agree?
1 store-bought pie crust
1 apple (peeled and chopped)
2 tablespoons melted butter (or if you are Kerri double that)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. If you have parchment paper this would be a good time to line the baking sheet but alas, we do not, so we just used cooking spray. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. This is where Kerri added the butter which she shouldn't have but it sure was tasty so who's to say this is a problem? Not this girl. 

Cut up the pie crust into roughly three inch squares on a floured surface. Brush the squares with the melted butter. Sprinkle (or in our case spread) the cinnamon sugar mixture on each square and then add a bit of the chopped apple. Then sort of fold the square into a dumpling shape, pressing the edges till it seals. Then top with more butter and more cinnamon sugar and bake for 8-10 minutes.  

And now for Letty's fantastic photos!

As a rule lately I eat zero desserts but I had to make an exception for these little guys. And it was worth the cheat, it truly was.

Oh and of course the resident photographer, as taken by Kerri.
