Mini Apple Pies

…because everyone loves Apple Pie!

Ingredients

2 apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/4 inch dice
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, optional
One 8 ounce containers of crescent roll dough (I used Pillsbury)
Confectioner’s sugar for garnish

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375. Line a cookie sheet with foil.
2. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add apples, sugar, cinnamon and nuts (if using) and saute for about 5 minutes or until apples start to soften. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
3. Open the container of dough and carefully separate the perforated triangles – you will have 8 triangles. Spoon a generous tablespoon of apple mixture onto the wide end of each triangle. Carefully roll up the triangle so that the pointed end wraps around the outside, making sure the apple mixture doesn’t spill out the sides. Press the sides of the mini pie gently to seal it.
4. Transfer the pies to the prepared cookie sheet and bake until golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack, cool for about 10 minutes, sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar and serve warm!
