easy and oh-so-cute mini apple pies

Do you ever find yourself getting almost giddy over a recipe you've put together? I was like this today. I was like a kid on Christmas morning. Okay, I might be going a bit overboard but I was really quite pleased with the way these little pies came together.

I bought these rounds wraps at the store the other day and I wanted to find something fun to do with them. I thought of several different combinations of ingredients from sweet to savory. I finally thought I had it all worked out in my brain to make apple turnovers...I changed my mind at the last moment and thought that mini apple pies would be more unique and fun.

The first step is to place 12 wraps into a lightly oiled muffin pan.

Add the apple filling. Bake for 12 minutes at 375 degrees.

Add a bit of oat topping. Bake for 10 more minutes. Covering with foil if wraps are getting too brown.

2 large apples, peeled, cored and chopped (I used golden delicious)
1/4 cup raisins
2 tbsp spiced apple cider
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp honey
2 tsp flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
dash of salt

Topping

3/4 cup oats
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp cold butter

Place the oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon into a food processor. Pulse to combine. Add the butter and pulse to combine. Place into a bowl and mix a bit more with fingers until you have course crumbs.

Serve these adorable pies with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt and a drizzle of caramel sauce.

I have never had a dinner party in my life but if I ever did I would serve these. They are lovely and bring smiles. I hope you will give them a try!

Have a wonderful week!

What a great idea to bake them in muffin tins. I love your ideas!

Love your apple mini pies. You are so clever, Kim. Using the wrappers for the crust is genius and it saves all the mess of making pie crust.

Your recipe just gave a great idea for a party appetizer, using the same round wraps. I've been wrecking my brain all weekend and thanks to you now I know what to make! I'm thinking pears and blue cheese...

What a great use for dumpling wrappers! I tend to steer clear of pies because I'm not so great at crust, but that completely eliminates that problem!

5 Star Foodie said...

These are great, awesome idea to use the wrappers to make the mini apple pies! I've actually done something similar recently, more in a tart style - fried the open dumpling wrappers and put apples on top (cooked quickly in a pan with sugar & spices).

the twins said...

those look so good! i wish i could eat one now =) good idea with the wonton wrappers. i've made mini apple pies with premade graham cracker crusts before.

Sophia said...

Wow Kim! I love the use of that wrapper for the pastry! I don't really like pie pastry, but these are perfect...light and crunchy!

m.e (Cathie) said...

oh my, I have never thought of using wonton wrappers like that, what a fantatsic idea, they look fantastic

Ginger said...

I have TWO packs of those in my freezer!! I have apples in a basket!! THANK YOU!! Those mini apple pies make great little treats to share with your neighbors!! They look unique and really delicious. To me, vanilla ice cream is always a wonderful addition and I love your photos!!

Joanne said...

Whoa what a great idea! I love how these are portion sized so that you can have the scoop of ice cream along with it and still feel satisfied without completely overindulging. Although I bet it's hard to just stop at one mini pie. Awesome idea! You are a genius.

A Year on the Grill said...

Oh this looks so yummy! I love the different twist in using dumpling wrappers - way easier than crust but I'm sure just as delicious!

Super cute, clever and fun. I do that sort of thing with tortillas at times but hadn't thought of using dumpling wrappers. Great idea!

Megan said...

That is such a creative and adorable way to use dumpling wrappers!

I never would have thought that Asian wrappers would work so well as a pie crust. What an awesome idea! I always seem to have a ton that go to waste, and these little pies look so yummy.

The Nomadic Gourmet said...

These look really awesome. I've never heard of mini apple pies or even apple pies with an oat topping. Must be tasty, and it's pretty healthy too :)
