How to Make Bite Size Apple Pies


  1. Prepare Apples: Peel and core apples. Cut apples into small pieces (1/2 inch chunks). Put them in a small glass baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon juice.
  2. Put cinnamon and sugar mix in a small bowl. Add 3 Tablespoons of corn starch. Mix together well being sure to break up any "chunky" pieces of corn starch.
  3. Pour cinnamon mixture over the top of the apples. Toss apples to completely coat. It will be wet and sticky now. Make sure there is no dry mix left on bottom of baking pan.

    Dot the top of apples with small pieces of butter.
  4. Place apples in oven and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or until apples are soft but not mushy.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Juice will thicken while cooling. Every now and then fold apples thru juice.
  6. Prepare Fillo Shells: When apples are completely cooled. Take fillo shells from the box.

    Heat a small amount of butter in microwave.

    Turn fillow shells upside down and brush each with butter lightly, then sprinkle lightly with cinnamon and sugar, immediately after brushing with butter.

    Turn shells back over and arrange on serving platter or dishes.

    Fill each shell with apple mixture and sprinkle with plain granola if desired (i did half with and half without)

    I refrigerated mine for about an hour then since my family likes their apple pie cold.

    You can also put a very small dollop of cool whip on them before serving.
