{Tasty Treats} Mini HEART shaped apple pies

Hello there – It’s Melissa from My Party Passion here again at Eye Candy Event Details.   As with most months, February is a great month to incorporate some fun parties into your life!   Today I am coming at you from my kitchen with a fun Valentine Mini Apple Pie!

Simple ingredients – apple cut up small, cinnamon, 1 tablespoon melted butter and a premade pie crust.   For glaze I used powered sugar and water. 

Roll out your pie crust on a lightly floured surface and use heart cookie cutters to cut out your pie crust cookies.    Baste lightly with butter on one side.

Place a teaspoon full of apples on the buttered heart.  Dust with cinnamon (I put my cinnamon on 1st).  Then place another heart over the one you just put apples on.  

Using a fork,  “marry up” the two sides.   This seals in the apple.

Now baste each “mini” pie with some more butter.

Cook at 350 degrees until brown.  While cooking whip up the simple glaze using powered sugar and water.  

Let cool for 3 minutes and pour the glaze you prepared over the top.  I put in a little red food coloring (gel) to make pink.   Wait for glaze to “set” and eat with a tall glass of milk!  (or in my case a cup of tea)

These are so easy and fun to make!   I hope you have a wonderful February!  Until next time – Party On!
