Quick Mini Apple Pies

Being a pathetic baker I find short cuts really handy. Such a short cut is these quick mini apple pies. Apple Pie with filo pastry right!!! Who knew?? With a crispy crust this quick apple pie is all what you need to meet your sudden sweet cravings. I mean...they are perfect!! I like them even more than the traditional pies. The traditional pie is richer and fuller...and perfect for formal occasions. But this little mini pies are perfect as appetizer and some go to friends' get together. Once you make them....I guarantee that you will go back to them more than you should.

Serves 3

how to make quick apple pies recipe and preparation

3 apples
½ cup brown sugar
4 filo pastry sheets
1 tbsp cinnamon powder
4 tbsp butter
A pinch of salt

Peel and chop the apples. Take all the apples in a bowl and add in the sugar, cinnamon powder and salt.
Mix them well and keep aside.
Take a saucepan and place it on the stovetop. Put the flame on low and add 2 tbsp butter to the saucepan.
As the butter melts add the sugar and apple mixture into the saucepan.
Start stirring and you will see the sugar caramelizing and apples becoming soft.
When the mixture starts to bubble switch off the flame and transfer the apples to a bowl. Keep aside.
Take the filo pastry sheets and cut each one of them into 4 equal parts.
Take one square and brush it with melted butter and place another square on it in a way that they look like a star. Brush this square as well and place another one on it. Follow this step with the last one as well.
Now you have a layered star like frame.
Place a little of that apple pie filling in it and tug all the edges together and seal them with a little water giving it a potli / parcel kind of look.
Place this parcel in one of the greased muffin tin.
Follow the same method with the other sheets as well until you are finished with the pie filling.
Pop this muffin tray into the oven for about 7-10 minutes at 325F.
Serve it hot with a little sprinkle of caster sugar or a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or just a drizzle of maple syrup.
