i had extra apple pie filling, and the mini apple pies were so good, and i made so few of them in the first batch, that i decided to make more! this time, i made a crumble topping, which is sooo yummy. also this time, i found the regular pie crusts (which are by the cookie dough and biscuits) instead of the frozen ones in the pie tins. they were bigger, so i could make more mini pies. yay!
other than that, second verse same as the first. pie crust circles, apples from a can, topping (lots of crumble on the bigger ones, mini lattices on the mini ones). baked and checked every ten minutes. voila!
i sort of shot from the hip with the crumble topping. i started with about a quarter cup white sugar and half a cup flour and a few tablespoons butter... then my mom told me you make crumble topping with brown, not white, sugar. oops. so i threw some of that in there too. i think it ended up being like a cup of sugars and a half a cup of flour and a stick of butter. so, of course, i ended up with too much crumble topping. i really piled it on the regular-muffin-sized ones, and still had some left over... also had some leftover apples... and pie crust scraps... what to do?
apple crumble cobbler something-or-other!
an inside peek into the apple crumble cobbler something-or-other:
ok, so i realize it doesn't look that great, but it tasted like, oh man. it was amazing. in a glass pan, i put in the rest of the canned apples, and some fresh ones with some cinnamon and sugar, and put the pie crust scraps on top, and the rest of the crumble (and some cinnamon on top). bake at 350 for like 20 minutes (the check-every-ten-minutes method). it was so good. sort of like a crumbled up pie.
here's all three apple creations together: mini apple pies, micro apple pies, and apple something-or-other:
and, all three with, what else, whipped cream. talk about yummy.
i'm originally from the great state of texas, but i came out to the east coast to go to college at gw. now i'm in law school at gw, and part of me is deathly afraid that i'll never return to texas.
i bake to relieve stress, and i like to give away what i bake so that i don't eat it all (or i'd be even fatter than i already am). then i figured i could share my recipes and what little baking knowledge i have with the wide, wide world, so i started a blog.
