Meet the Sullivans: Mini Apple Pie a La Mode

Mini Apple Pie a La Mode

This isn't so much a recipe as it is an idea. Like I said in my Menu Monday post, There were little Keebler graham cracker dessert shells on sale at the end of one of the aisles when I was shopping this week and they looked so cute so I just had to get them! Luckily, they have some great looking easy recipes on their website. 

Here is what you will need: 

For the pies: 
  • 1 can (21 oz) apple pie filling
  • 1 package Keebler Ready Crust Apple Pie crusts 
  • 1 pin vanilla ice cream 
For the crumb topping:
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, soft
  • 1/4 flour

The line up.

preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine brown sugar, butter and flour in a medium size bowl. 

Mix with a fork until combination is like coarse crumbs.

 Place mini pie shells on a baking sheet.

Fill the shells with  pie filling.

And then evenly divide crumb topping between the shells. 


Bake for 25 minutes, or until bubbly and "crispy" looking. Let shells cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before serving. 

 Top with one larger scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I really like how easy this was for a week night treat and I always find mini hings so appealing and adorable. I would definitely make my own filling next time. I had never tried making apple pie with a canned filling before and I don't think I will do it ever again. Apple pie is so much better with freshly cut apples and spices. Not bad for a quick apple pie fix.

If you have more than 30 minutes I HIGHLY recommend this apple pie recipe. Its a Good Morning America winning recipe for Crunchy Caramel Apple Pie from 2001 and it is always a hit whenever I make it.
