Mini Apple Crostatas


I found this recipe on Pillsbury site and truly as the saying goes this recipe is as easy as a pie. :) It hardly takes around five minutes to put together these crostatas besides the baking time. And you will have a delightful dessert to please everyone. Even my daughter who hates sweet stuff tried it and said it was yummy.

Ingredients: (Yield 6 crostatas)

Pillsbury or any other brand 9 inch refrigerated pie crust (one from 15 oz box)
2 small baking apples - peeled, cored and thinly sliced
2 Tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
Vanilla ice cream for serving


Method:
1. Soften the crust as directed on the box. Unroll the crust and roll out slightly. Cut into four 5 inch rounds. Collect the scraps, roll again and cut into 5 inch rounds again. (Totally I got 6 rounds.)Place the rounds on a greased baking sheet.
2. Heat oven to 425 deg F.
3. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and toss apple slices into it. Divide evenly the apple mixture onto center of each round. Fold 1/2 inch of the crust over filling, pinching all around slightly so that crust lays flat on apples.
4. Bake for 18 - 20 minutes until crust is golden brown
5. Serve warm with icecream if desired.
