A fantastic treat on a cold winter’s day– there’s nothing better than your own little tart of apple pie heaven! These are great for brunches and fancier desserts alike.
6 lady apples
Pie crust for a two crust pie (So, I always cheat and use Jiffy… you’ll need one box 🙂 )
6 pats of butter
1/2 cup of cinnamon sugar (add a dash of nutmeg if you like)
1.) Peel and core the lady apples. Since they are so small, you’ll have to do the coring very carefully with a paring knife. If it’s easier to just cut them in half and remove the core that way, it’s okay to do that; the recipe will still work.
2.) Roll out the pie crust and cut out six 6-inch diameter circles. Place a lady apple in the center of each circle. Top each apple with a pat of butter and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top.
3.) Fold the dough up around each apple and pinch together (like you would for a pot sticker). If you need to, use a little water to help the dough stick.
4.) Line the apples up on baking sheet over a layer of parchment paper, and bake for 30-45 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve warm.
