Last week we had our final Queen's Dish of the season and the theme was All American Barbeque. I thought about calling my father-in-law to get his baked bean recipe. It is legend around here. But I knew his measurements and ingredients weren't exact and that he tastes as he goes, which wouldn't really work for my purposes.
Instead I decided I should make tiny apple pies! Because tiny is so cute, and who doesn't want to say they ate an entire pie by themselves?
I'd seen pies that resembled a Hostess style hand pie, somewhat folded over, but when I came across these little pies shaped like a regular sized pie on Pinterest, I was so excited! The secret is to cook the pies in the lids of mason jars. The lid acts like an individual sized pie tin. Isn't that genius?
I had to take a few pictures because really these pies were just pretty. I will definitely be making variations of this recipe this summer. Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream . . . what's more All American than that?
