Quick and easy mini apple pies

We go through a LOT of food in our household every week. With four kids to care for five days a week, it can sometimes be challenging to come up with a variety of snacks and meals to keep them fuelled up for play all day long.

For morning and afternoon tea, I usually serve fruit or yoghurt and sometimes crackers with cheese. But each week I like to come up with a little special treat for the kids, just for a nice change from our usual tea time fare.

Here is one of my favourite tea time treats which I like to keep up my sleeve. It’s really quick and easy enough to even get the kids involved in the cooking process…

Mini apple pies

Ingredients
2 tbsp sugar
1 tspn cinnamon
2 sheets shortcrust/pie pastry

2 medium tart apples, each cut into 8 wedges

Directions
In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Unroll the pastry sheet, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.

Cut each sheet into 8 one inch strips, about 8 in. long. Wrap one strip around each apple wedge, placing sugared side of pastry against apple.

Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 180°C for 13-15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.

I’ve used all sorts of apples for this recipe, including Sundowners, Pink Lady and even Fuji apples. The taste vary with each type of apple, but they all still taste good. I’ve also made this recipe using puff pastry sheets with great results as well.

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.
