Bitesize apple pies

Friends were coming round over Christmas, and I wanted to make dessert canapes. I’d already baked some Millionaire’s Date Biscuits (actually, an earlier batch were defrosting from the freezer) and Chocolate Whoopie Pies, so it had to be non-chocolatey, maybe even vaguely healthy. And these bitesize apple pies were the result. They’re not super-sweet, so if you have a sweet tooth, you might want to add a dipping sauce, like I did - caramel frosting leftover from the Whoopie pies worked really well.

Bitesize apple pies (recipe from Tastebook)

1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 roll shortcrust pastry (I used JusRol)
3 tablespoons butter, melted 
2 medium apples, each cut into 8 wedges


Mix the sugar and cinnamon, and set aside 1 tablespoon. 
Roll out the pastry on a flour-y board, then brush it with two thirds of the butter, and sprinkle with the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
Cut each sheet into 2cm strips, about 20cm long. Wrap one strip around each apple wedge, placing sugared side of pastry against the apple.
Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Brush tops with remaining butter and sprinkle with reserved sugar mixture. 
Bake at 180° for about 15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown, and serve warm.
