We have enjoyed sharing our Monday coffee recipes so much that we have decided to expand our horizons with a new series of dessert and breakfast recipes! But, these aren't just any old recipes. We have hand selected easy to prepare, simple treats that pair well with, you guessed it...Kcup coffee! Not only will we include a delicious recipe but, we will suggest a Keurig Kcup coffee to enjoy with it for optimal taste!
Up this week...Mini Apple Pies.
I don't know about you but, I have a huge
bowl full of fresh apples ready to an waiting
to be used in a variety of delicious dishes.
Apple pie is of course on that list! I might
make one for the whole family but, for now
I am going mini and keeping it all to myself
(shhh don't tell them)!
Let's get to the recipe...
1 refrigerated pie crust (or homemade if that is how you roll)
6 cups chopped apples
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
Half pint size glass canning jars or similar sized dishes
In a medium sized bowl, mix together the apples, sugars, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir so the apples are coated well. Pour the apple mixture into your jars or containers that you are using to cook in.
Roll out the pie crust, slice into ½ strips and layer over the tops of the jars, pressing slightly where the pie crust hits the rim of the jars so it stays on while baking.
Place the jars of dishes on a bar pan (or a cookie sheet with sides) and place in the oven. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until the apple mixture is bubbly and the crust is brown.
If you’d rather make this more of an apple crumble (I love it this way!), you can since mix the following together and place on top of the apples in the jars instead of the pie crust.
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup white flour
4 tablespoons oats
4 tablespoons melted butter
Since cinnamon is always an amazing compliment to apple pie, I would recommend Donut House Collection Cinnamon Roll Kcup coffee to enjoy with your mini pie. BUT, if you really want to kick it up a notch try a Spiced Apple Chai tea...this would make one amazing flavor companion!
