Valentine's Day mini Apple Pie.

Valentine’s Day mini apple pies are the perfect dessert to share with a loved one. These have all of goodness of an apple pie served up in a cute heart shape.

These are buttery, brown sugar and cinnamon coated Granny Smith apples, wrapped up in a heart shaped flakey pie. I used these Wilton cookie cutters to get the heart shape.

Using a rolling pin Roll out puff pastry on lightly floured surface. Use Heart shape cookie cutters to cutout an even amount of pie cutouts.

When making these I first did the large heart cut out. I had more apple mixture left then pastry, so I bought more pastry and used the smaller hearts to finish off the apples.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. I like the parchment paper sheets because they are easy to lay down, no sizing required. Fill the heart cutouts with apple pie filling, leaving about a 1/2 inch border.
