Mini Apple Pies

INGREDIENTS

7 whole apples - Pink Lady or Honey Crisp

2 Tablespoons honey

1/2 Teaspoon Apple Pie Spice

1/4 Cup Pecans, chopped

1/4 Teaspoon Rum Extract

2 Tablespoon Oil, coconut

1 Refrigerated Pie Crust

1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter, Melted

To Taste Coconut Whip Cream

To Taste caramel sauce

To Taste cinnamon

To Taste Vanilla Ice Cream


STEPS

1 - Heat Traeger to 375F degrees. (we used apple flavored pellets but pecan would be equally amazing)

2 - Slice the tops off four apples.

3 - Using melon baller, carefully remove inner part of each apple.

4 - You may need to slice the bottoms evenly to stand upright as well. Dice the remaining three apples into small chunks to use in apple pie filling.

5 - In a large bowl mix diced apple chunks with honey, apple pie spice, pecans, and rum extract to make the apple pie filling.

6 - Heat coconut oil over medium and sauté apple mixture for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

7 - Fill hollowed apples with prepared apple pie filling

8 - Using a pizza cutter, slice pie crust into even strips ( about 1/4") and lay in lattice fashion across the top of each apple. Trim excess pie crust around the edges with a knife.

9 - Brush melted butter on top of pie crusts and sprinkle pie crusts with cinnamon-coconut sugar.

10 - Place apples in a high walled baking dish. Add about 1/4 cup of water to bottom of dish to just cover the bottoms of the apples. Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove foil and return to oven for an additional 20 minutes. Apples are done when crust is golden brown along edges and apples are soft to slice.

11 - Serve warm with coconut whip cream, clean caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
