Make It Monday - school lunch apple pockets


We took the last of our orchard apples and simmered them into a great applesauce: chopped apples, water, a little sugar, lemon juice, and our secret weapon...


4 or 5 twists of this cinnamon sugar grinder from Trader Joe's turns out to be the perfect touch of cinnamon.


Combine the apples, water, 2 Tbls sugar, lemon juice, and that touch of cinnamon sugar and "cook the apples down" or "stew" them as my Nanna used to say. Then use your favorite pie crust recipe or this quick easy option from Whole Foods (it's great)...


Roll the crust and cut out thin rounds to press into a greased mini quiche pan...


Then spoon the applesauce into the mini quiche pan and add a top to each one...


Bake them at 350 for 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. These are soooo delicious and your kids will gobble them up.
