More yumminess

I told you last week how I LOVE apple pie and autumn...and anything that has to do with this awesome season and it's sights, smells and sounds. Mmmmmm. Anything apple is good isn't it?

 These little apple pies are so easy and delicious. Anna and I love making them and the boys LOVE eating    them!!
                 Aren't they pretty? Baked........ so you don't feel QUITE as guilty as the fried version:)
 Light and crispy......the crust has powedered sugar and butter so you can imagine it's delicious richness.
 They look beautiful set out...that is if you can keep the male species away from them long enough to plate them!

Here's the quick and easy recipe. Enjoy!! And have a beautiful autumn day in the Lord!
With much love,

Ok, I'll admit it. My tummy suddenly started rumbling when I looked through your pictures!! What a great recipe. I'm copying it! I hope to make these as soon as I'm off my neighborhood "Biggest Looser challange" at the end of the month.
These look fabu-licious!!
