|Soaking seeds in saltwater....mmmm.|
Yesterday was full with pumpkin carving, pumpkin seed preparing, and tiny apple pie making. Yes, tiny apple pies.
|Yummy and cute!|
Have you seen these apple pie's made in 4oz mason jars around the interwebs lately? I have no idea where the concept originated, but it is really cool. I had to bring a preschool snack for their Halloween party today so I thought I'd give these a whirl.
|How cute are these 4oz mason jars?|
|Cut the apple pieces smaller than usual for the little pies.|
I used my tried and true apple pie filling recipe (below) and the Crisco pie crust recipe. They turned out delicious. I will definitely be doing this again!
Apple Pie Filling
5 apples (I prefer tart)
3/4 cups sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1-1/2 tablespoons Penzy's "Baking Spice"
Half a lemon
Peel and slice apples to desired thickness (generally I cut mine for a regular pie at about 1/4" thick). Squeeze the juice of half of a lemon over the apples to coat. Mix the flour, sugar, and spice together in a bowl and then pour over the apples and stir. There is a reason for the expression "easy as apple pie".
I will snack on one of these cuties tonight when I am watching scary movies after the kids go to bed...bwwaaahhh!!!! Happy Halloween all!
