Ever since I figured out how to make a nice "pie-like" crust using our Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix, I just can't get enough of these little pies! This time, apple cinnamon - delish!
For the crust:
1-1/2c Thrive 6 Grain Pancake Mix
3T Thrive Butter Powder
3T Thrive Sugar (white or brown)
Dash Ground Cinnamon
Grease a 12 cup muffin tin. Combine ingredients and mix until a soft dough forms (if your dough is too dry, add additional water one tablespoon at a time until it is moist). Drop the dough by heaping tablespoon fulls into each cup your muffin tin. Grease your fingers, then gently press the dough onto the bottom and up the sides of each cup to form the crust. Set aside.
For the filling:
2c Thrive Apple Slices
1/2c Thrive Sugar (brown or white)
1t Ground Cinnamon
1/4c Chopped Nuts (walnuts or pecans would be great)
Combine apples, water, nuts, sugar and cinnamon in a small pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until apples begin to break down and sugar melts into a thick syrup, about 10 minutes. Carefully spoon mixture into crusts and bake in preheated oven for 16-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
