Bite-Sized Apple Pies
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 package (14.1oz) refrigerated pie pastry
3 Tbsp butter, melted, divided
2 medium tart apples, each cut into 8 wedges
In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside 1 Tbsp. On a lightly floured suface, unroll pastry. Brush with 2 Tbsp butter sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture.
Cut each sheet into 8 - 1in strips, about 8 inches long. Wrap one strip around each apple wedge, placing sugared side of pastry against the apple.
Place on parchment paper -lined baking sheet. Brush tops with remaining butter; sprinkle with reserved sugar mixture. Bake at 425 for 13-15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.

These were soooo tasty! Just like a mini apple pie, paired with 1/4 cup of low fat ice cream and it was just perfect! Now did I want to all 8 mini apple pies in one sitting... why yes I did... but I'm restraining myself. It's all about portion control. For some reason a whole apple pie sitting on the counter is fair game, but the individual apple pie wedges I can restrain myself. Mind games, that's what it is, mind games! Whatever works!
