Anyway, these two recipes are not so healthy, but they are delicious. We brought snacks in for church and I wanted two different types of treats (plus fruit). They even got rave reviews from the self-proclaimed foodie in the class.
So first, pecan pie muffins. I would say these are significantly healthier than actual pecan pie. My conservation group was my guinea pigs and they all liked them, so I figured they were safe for church. I used the recipe from Mennonite Girls Can Cook (the name makes me giggle growing up in LancCo)
Things I changed: I doubled the recipe and used a Calphalon mini-muffin pan. It didn't make a full pan, I think I was 2 short.
The Apple Pie Bars are from Smitten Kitchen, she calls it a slab pie which might be more descriptive but oh well.
Things I changed:
I used store bought dough (4 disks) because I realized the muffins weren't enough and there was no way I was making pie dough at 9 at night.
I also used a slightly smaller and deeper pan, creating a deeper, slightly goopier pie.
I played around with the Apple Cider Drizzle because I couldn't get the right consistency.
I crimped the pie edges with a fork.
DH ate the leftover raw dough (I think that's gross and weird)
Other Thoughts: Use the parchment paper! Made cleanup - and serving - so much easier.
