Apple Bite O'Pie
We are going to a potluck house concert tonight, so thought I'd bring mini apple pies. I had about 10 Granny Smith apples, cored, peeled, cut into chunks and put into a food processor. Add cold butter, juice and zest of a lemon and pulse until finely chopped. Put the chopped apple mixture into a bowl and add brown sugar, white sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves; mix together.
I cheated and used pre-made pie crusts, using my large biscuit cutter, cut into rounds. Put into mini-muffin tin, with dough barely overlapping the rims. Spoon in apple filling. Add another round (next size down), for the top, egg wash edges, put on top crust, crimp (I used a small child's fork). Egg wash top, cut a slit for the steam to escape, bake. I baked at 400, convection for about 13 minutes.
I will be taking these to the party with a triangle of sharp cheddar cheese on top w/toothpick.
