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. 


 Close-up!


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.
