‘Tis the season and that means baked goods, gifting, and spreading holiday cheer! The adorable steal today, Martha Stewart Crafts Treat Packaging, is just begging to be filled with your favorite homemade goodies. Well today we have recipes for scrumptious mini apple pies and an addicting coconut snack mix that will be a hit with neighbors, friends, and family. Even better, they’re both super simple!

Mini Apple Pies

 

Ingredients

1 package premade pie crust dough
3 apples
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
pinch of ground cloves

 

Directions

Peel and slice apples into small chunks. Add in sugar, flour, cinnamon and cloves and stir until equally coated. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a cookie sheet. Roll out dough on a flat surface and cut out 4″ circles (I used the top of a large glass). Using one package of dough I got about 22 pies. Put a spoonful of apple mixture in the center of each circle. Dip your finger in water and coat water on the edge of the dough around the apples, then fold in half and press until sealed. Use a fork to add a decorative look to the edge of the pie and repeat until all are on your cookie sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until light brown.
