When you want a change from the same old apple pie, these miniature apple pies are a nice alternative.I find the double crust and the smaller size of the pies a good balance for the sweetness of the filling.These are best served warm with a good quality vanilla ice cream.

Yummy, and not hard to make. I used heavy cream (it's what I had on hand) and water in place of the apple juice (no juice on hand). I thought the final product might be runny, but not at all. The flavor is very good. I served them warm from the oven with french vanilla ice cream - a big hit here at our house! I already have requests from my family to make again - thanks for such a good recipe!
