Lately, I’ve been CRAVING apple pie but since I’m the only one in my house that likes it I decided to make a mini (and easier) version.
I used Athens Phyllo Shells because I love the crispy texture and it’s easier than pie crust.
To make the apple filling I spiralized two medium-sized apples into a saucepan and added a dash of cinnamon, a tablespoon of water, and two tablespoons of brown sugar. Then I cooked the mixture on medium heat for five minutes. At this point, the entire house smelled so good and I started drooling (kidding…sorta).
While the apple mixture was cooking I popped the phyllo shells into the oven to get them super crispy.
Next, I made the crumbly topping by mixing 12 shortbread cookies (graham crackers would also work) with a tablespoon of butter, a tablespoon of brown sugar, a dash of cinnamon, and a splash of cold water in the blender.
Then, I added my apple mixture into the shells and sprinkled on the crumbly topping.
To finish them up I put them in the oven at 350 for 5 minutes.
They are SO good!
