Sometimes I get this wild idea to be creative with food for breakfast on the weekends. When I have time. Sigh
don't like making pies. Ok it's the crust I don't like fitting into a pan. If I can buy a crust pre made I'll do it. I should just watch tutorials on how to put crust in a pie dish. I've tried, and failed many times over again. Something always rips.
I can do what I did this weekend, which is cheat!
Why frustrate myself when I can make a crisp, or what I made this weekend Mini Apple Tarts?
Seriously if you have tips, or know of a great tutorial on laying pie crust in a pan I'll read the tips or watch the tutorial.
Mini Apple Tarts:
Mini Apple Tarts are easy, taste good, and are pretty healthy.
I made 1/2 a recipe of pie crust, but you can make however much you'd like. If you want a lot of tarts make a full batch. You'll just be in the kitchen longer. I used this crust recipe
, but any recipe will do.
It helps to refrigerate the dough for 1/2 an hour, or you could make the dough the night before.
Roll out the dough and cut it into circles with a glass, or circle cookie cutter.
Cut apples into circle slices. Add onto the dough, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, crimp the edges and bake.
We set the oven to 425 degrees. It took about an hour to bake them to our liking. I was looking for the apple to be baked, and the crust to be tan.
They were good! We all liked them!
I could see making Mini Peach Tarts too. Although the big seed in the middle gets in the way for a close to perfect circle.
You could top with a dollop of whipped cream. It would taste good with vanilla ice cream for a dessert. We actually had them for breakfast though.
