Who does not love apple pie? Okay I will admit it is not my favorite pie but it sure is my husbands. So since we have so many apples still (Got to think of more apple recipes, I still have a TON) I thought it would be nice to make him an apple pie. But truth be told I did not want to go through all the hassle of making an apple pie, plus if I made a whole pie I usually end up eating most of it and I did not want that to happen, yes myself control is lacking!
So when I found this cute Mini Apple Pie Mold in the store I knew it would be perfect. I could make a few mini apple pies and then it is already portioned out and I won’t eat the whole thing, I could also make the filling my way and NOT add all the sugar that is normally added (I am trying to cut down on my sugar).
As soon as my husband saw what we were making he headed out to the store to get ice cream, I guess it does go really well with hot apple pie doesn’t it. However my daughter once she saw the ice cream only wanted ice cream and was no longer interested in the pie’s we made, oh well more for us! We had some extra filling left over and I have to say that I actually really LOVE just that on top of my ice cream so if you have extra filling when done making yours don’t throw it out, use it as an ice cream topper it is YUMMY! Oh I bet it would go good on oatmeal too, okay trying that tomorrow for breakfast!!
