Recently I've been searching for new recipes to try and add to my Superbowl Sunday menu. Next weekend is the Super Bowl which means a lot of friends across the nation will gathered around together and spend their entire Sunday eating and cheering for their favorite team! Even though I'm not a big football fan I still do enjoy participating in this event and getting together with friends to watch the game, drink and eat food. Since most of the time these gatherings don't involve an actual sit down meal finger foods and bite-size food are always a good choice. This way as people get hungry they can just grab a little bite and don't even need a plate necessarily. That is why I decided to try these mini rose apple pies. They are small enough to fit into your palm and take about two's bites to devour. Just enough of the dessert to satisfy you without having to commit to filling up on this one dessert choice. It also helps that they are super pretty! hehe
Servings: One 200Gr Pie Crust makes about 6 mini pies roses.
3 Apples (Washed and cut into quarters, remove seeds than slice thinly)
6 TBSP of White Granulated Sugar
1/4 -1/2 of a Lemon (juiced)
400Gr PiIlsberry Pre-made Pie Crust
Cinnamon Spice (as desired)
Icing sugar for garnish (as desired)
*You will also need toothpicks and a baking tray covered in wax paper/ nonstick baking sheet.
In a sauce pan add in your thinly sliced apples, 2 TBSP of sugar and lemon juice. Fill sauce pan with water to submerge your apples and place on stove on High heat. Bring your water to a boil, then reduce heat letting it simmer for an additional two minutes before draining the water.
Lay the apples out on a absorbent cloth to suck up any access water.
Preheat over to 350 Degrees.
Next lay out one of your pie crust. Sprinkle it with the remaining sugar (more or less as you please) and cinnamon.
Cut the dough into 3/4 to 1 inch strips and place your apple slices slightly overlapping along the strip. Roll the strip and tie off the end using a toothpick to hold it in place.
Place strip on baking tray (previously covered with wax paper)
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden.
Remove from oven and allow to cool before sprinkling icing sugar on top. Enjoy!!!
