Yes, you guessed it. I am STARVING. And I am really really craving my mother’s apple pie right now. (I keep writing ‘applie’ instead of ‘apple’ for some reason?!)
But you know, being extremely lazy after a hard day’s work of pre-Baccalaureat revision, I’ve decided, I STILL need apple pie.
So after surfing through Youtube, watching random peoples’ boyfriend tag videos (I find most of them pretty fake and cheesy), I found a pretty cool video that was screaming my name on otherjuicystar07‘s channel: Apple Pie Party Dip!
Not only was my mouth watering, but it triggered the Curious Cook inside me, so I googled the recipe, and found another apple pie recipe: Mini Apple Pie Bites!
So here’s my advice to you: when you’re lazy, and you’re craving, youtube it, then google it, then MAKE IT.
Apple Pie Party Dip
For the Dip:
1 1/3 cups peeled, cored, and diced apple
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. apricot preserves
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
For Cinnamon Sugar Chips:
(6”) flour tortillas
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
½ tsp. cinnamon
1 ½ Tbsp. sugar
-Combine all dip ingredients in a bowl.
-Cover the dip and refrigerate until chilled. This is great to make early in the day for snacking later on!
-While you’re waiting for the dip to chill, make the cinnamon sugar chips. Brush melted butter onto the tortillas.
-Cut tortillas into wedges or strips.
-Arrange wedges or strips onto a nonstick/greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
-Bake at 350° F until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool.
Mini Apple Pie Bites
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 package refrigerated pie crust (2 crusts)
3 tbsp. melted butter
2 granny smith apples, cut into 16 wedges
Take your pie crusts out of the fridge and let them sit on the counter for 10-15 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl.
Roll out your pie crusts and cut them into 8 strips (16 strips total). For this, you can use a fluted pastry cutter, a pizza cutter, or a sharp knife to cut your strips. Brush each strip with melted butter and sprinkle on some of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Wrap each strip around each apple wedge (with the sugar side facing the apple). Brush the tops with more butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Place your “pies” on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until golden.
