Fall = Apples!

The A team has been really looking forward to fall! We love the weather, the food, the changing colors, EVERYTHING about it. We made a fun fall list and are trying to cross a few things off here and there. One of the big things was that we wanted to go apple picking. I went a few years ago with some friends in Boston and it was a blast. We found a place in Sandy on Saturday and enjoyed doing a little picking. We couldn't pass up the .75 a lb offer they had and went to town!
I was loving these adorable little apples!

 I came straight from volleyball...please excuse me looking gross!

Getting my pick on!
 Not only were there apples, but we found some super yummy peaches too!
 For about $12 we scored all of this and had a really fun time!

Well now that I had all of these apples I needed something to do with them. Well don't you worry...I have PINTEREST! I have been pinning apple stuff for awhile now in preparation. I decided on making some mini apple pies which just looked too cute to not make and super easy!
Thank goodness Amanda has this awesome corer!
 Pretty sure this bad boy saved me at least an hour of chopping!
 Mason Jar lid used for a cookie cutter!
 End result! Yummy mini apple pies with some vanilla ice cream!
I still have tons of apples. Not sure what I will do next, but it was a successful weekend of Fall!


  1. Those mini pies look delicious! Did you use a muffin pan? What recipe did you use for the crust?

  2. They were super yummy! Way easy to make too. If you look on my pinterest board under treats you will find it. It is a muffin tin and then I just used the pre-made dough! It was so easy!
