Mini Apple Pies

How about a handheld apple pie? This recipe is super simple because I used a store bought pie crust to save myself time so I can eat these little yummy pies sooner!  Summer is here so I love going to the Farmer’s Market and picking up the freshest local produce available.  I picked up these apples on our last trip and immediately thought of apple pie but I didn’t want to make a big one. So I tried mini pies and they were even more delicious.

I like using gala apples I find them sweeter but you can use whichever apples you like. Handheld pies are easier to eat, make and everyone loves them! Next time you are at a local farmers market think about what you would like to stuff your pie crust with.  I may try mini blueberry and strawberry pies next time and let you know how they come out.

Hope you enjoy our mini apple pies!
