Excuse to Eat Pie…National Pie Day is TODAY!

23 Jan

I was watching one of my favorite shows yesterday, Diners,Drive-Ins and Dives Episode 11 Sweet N’ Savory and Guy was at the Meal Ticket a little joint in Cali where the owner whipped up this Apple Grape Pie, OMGoshi!!! Never heard of this before, but it looked so amazing.

Couldn’t find the copycat recipe for the Meal Tickets pie, but I did find a great little recipe from Sugar Rush that will serve as a substitute. These mini pies make a perfect portion size too, you don’t have to finish off a whole pie.

Apple Grape Mini Pie

For the Filling:
2-1/4 c. tart apples (such as Pink Lady or Gala), peeled and thinly sliced
2/3 c. seedless black grapes, halved
1/3 c. sugar

Combine ingredients in saucepan and heat over med-low heat until fruit is translucent, about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to keep sugars from burning. Pour mixture into ramekin.

I am gonna top the mixture with a pre-made crust, cause that’s what I do.

and bake at 350 for 25-30 mins.

Did I mention that it is NATIONAL PIE DAY, for reals! The perfect piggy excuse for a little pie:)
