Perfect Party Dessert: Mini Apple Pies
Last night the Mr. and I had friends over for the Superbowl. This was the first time we had a large group at our house, so I was pretty excited. I spent most of the day cooking and cleaning in preparation and wanted to try something new for dessert. Enter mini apple pies.
My mom had purchased a dough press set for me which she randomly saw at a Ross. Such a fun random little surprise. I hadn’t had a chance to use it yet and dessert for friends at a party seemed like a great excuse. I used this recipe for dough (I didn’t want to use shortening and that recipe is all butter), and this recipe for the filling. It was pretty delicious (even if my crust didn’t get dark brown). It was still crispy and that’s what matters.
Start with the apples and butter
Once it starts to thicken it’s a great point to steal a bite or two. Not that I did that…
It ended up being a fun way to serve dessert and a great distraction from the horrible commercials. Seriously, everyone wasted their money on those. Maybe if CBS hadn’t insisted on taking half of the commercials to advertise their shows there would have been a chance for a few good commercials to air. Oh well. At least the food was good.
