Bite-Sized Desserts to Cook with Kids – Apple Pie Cups

It’s been so nice having the kids at home over the holiday season it’s meant that we have had a lot of time together and as normal some of that has been spent in the kitchen playing around with recipes. One of our favourite apple recipes we’ve cooked together I had to share with you is our Bite-sized dessert Apple Pie Cups to cook with kids. These were so easy to make and taste delicious I’ve decided that as they are so quick and “bite-sized” that they can also be one of our go-to Rainy Day Desserts when we need some sweet treats for everyone.

Bite-Sized Desserts Mini Apple Pies

We’ve decided to top ours with one of my kids favourite additions to all desserts at the moment – SQUIRTY CREAM!

But you could top these mini pies with ice-cream or even whipped cream.

I love how simple these are to make not only are they quick for desserts they also make a really simple party dessert which we ended up bringing to a New Year’s Eve Party with our friends this year.

A word of warning you do need to grease the muffin tins – I like to use a sunflower oil as it doesn’t have a taste but you can use butter or margarine as well. I haven’t tried it with cake release spray so can’t comment on whether that would work well or not.

In this recipe I’ve used Wonton Wrappers – they are found in the World Food Ailse in our local Tesco.

However, we also tried with Filo Pastry – but if you do use Filo you need to use multiple layers otherwise they won’t hold the apple pie filling.

I like making my own Apple Pie Filing it’s really easy – you can find the recipe over on our Apple Pie Topped Cupcakes however a can of filing will work just as well and makes these bite-sized desserts even easier to make.
