I love apple crumble and apple pie desserts! So, this week for mini chef Mondays we made some delicious mini apple pie ravioli! These small apple pies are a great dessert for kids because they are small and easy to eat with your hands. You could also serve them hot from the oven with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream on top.
All you need is puff pastry and apple pie filling. We made homemade pie filling (I’ll share the recipe soon!) but you can also used store bought, which is just as good, not to mention faster! If you use store bought pie filling make sure to chop the apples up into smaller pieces from the can.
Roll the puff pastry out so that it’s as thin as you can get! Since it puffs up (hence the name) you want it really thin so your ravioli doesn’t just turn into apple pie stacks. Although come to think of it, that would be delicious, too! Use a ravioli cutter or square cookie cutter to cut out the puff pastry into raviolis.
Alternately, you could use a ravioli press for this, if you have one!
Place half the ravioli squares onto a baking sheet. Fill each ravioli with a small scoop of apple pie filling. Brush the edges with water and top each one with a remaining square. Press the edges down so they stick firmly together. Cut a slit or small “X” into each ravioli to help keep them from leaking. Last, sprinkle a little sugar on top!
Bake according to package directions, but keep an eye on them so they don’t burn. Our package called for 25-30 minutes and it really only took 12.
Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!
