Mini Apple Pies

Being a working mother and wife makes for a crazy life.  I need simple quick recipes that I can share with my family.  Today I'm sharing my newest creation...easy Mini Apple Pies.  They will fill your house full of a warm cinnamon apple smell without slaving away in the kitchen.  I can't wait to try them with other wonderful fillings too.  I hope you enjoy!!

Makes approx. 20 mini pies

2 refrigerated pie crusts
1 can apple pie filling
cinnamon and sugar

Unroll pie crust on floured surface

Cut out circles with cookie or biscuit cutter.  I used a 2.5" biscuit cutter.

Chop 1/2 can of pie filling into smaller chunks
Place pie crust circles on a baking sheet.  I always use parchment paper.  Add a teaspoon full of filling to middle and top with another circle.

Crimp edges with a fork

Cut vent hole in the top and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  Bake at 450 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes.
