Collab Kid Apple Pies




½ cup sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 sheets refrigerated pie crust

3 tablespoons butter, melted, divided

2 medium tart apples

A dash of salt



  1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a small bowl, mix sugar, salt and cinnamon; reserve 1 tablespoon. On a lightly floured surface, unroll pie crusts; roll and trim each to an 8-in. square. Brush with 2 tablespoons butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Cut each square into eight 1-in. strips.
  2. Cut each apple into 8 wedges; wrap 1 strip of pastry around each wedge, placing sugared side of pastry against the apple.
  3. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush tops with remaining butter; sprinkle with reserved sugar mixture. Bake 13-15 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Serve warm, with a caramel sauce if desired.

Things to consider while making this recipe:

Parents have the opportunity to develop their child’s self-esteem by encouraging them to take on challenges and learn from their mistakes. One of the significant roles of a parent is to offer guidance and steer clear of interfering. In other words, if children are struggling with challenges, parents should avoid giving solutions right away. The goal is to ask thought-provoking questions or encourage different ways of doing the task. Ask your child questions like “How do think it should taste” and “What other ingredients could we use next time?”.  Above all, don’t forget to enjoy the time spent together as a family!
