I love to make extra special baked treats for the ones I love on the holidays. However, I'm not one to make pie crusts or dough from scratch. I admit it - I just don't have the patience to do it. Instead, I like to come up with recipes that taste like they are made from scratch, but involve less hassle.
For breakfast this morning, I made Apple Pie Tarts and Cherry Tarts for my family. The great thing about this recipe is you can use whatever pie filling you'd like. These are also really good served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and caramel ice cream topping. I hope you enjoy making - and sharing - these tarts as much as I do.
APPLE PIE TARTS
1 can apple pie filling
2 cans biscuits (I use Pillsbury Grands, but anything will work)
1 stick melted, salted butter
1/2 cup sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Sprinkle a pinch of sugar-cinnamon mixture onto the work surface. Place one biscuit onto the mixture and roll it out with a rolling pin. Place one tablespoon of pie filling onto the center of the biscuit.
Fold the left side of the biscuit over to the right side so edges meet and filling is covered. Crimp edges with a fork.
Brush melted butter over both sides of the biscuit; roll entire biscuit into cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Allow to cool on pan for a couple of minutes and place on serving plate. Enjoy!
