Reviews for Apple Pie Tartlets
"I think the sugar foe the filling should be reduced; 1 1/3 tablespoons is sufficient, but it depends on your taste. Also, eliminate the caramel topping as the added sugar from both the apples and white sugar will make it too sweet. If you need a slight liquid to cook the apples, use a scant amount of water; maybe 1 tablespoon, and cook until the apples are slightly caramelized but not mushy (about 5 to 6 minutes). I would use a regular size muffin tin for my own personal preference, which would mean doubling the recipe."
"I used a Pillsbury pie crust and rolled it significantly thinner before cutting circles. And I brushed lightly with melted butter because we didn't have cooking spray. This was a huge hit with everyone!!"
"Very easy and very good! I used frozen tart shells for convience and they were wonderful but now that I know these are so good I may opt to do the pie pastry next time. :)"
"Fantastic !! The only change I made was to use the frozen tart shells instaed of making my own. The sauce thickened very quickly before the apples were tender so I just added some water until they were soft enough. My family and dinner quests loved them."
"So incredibly easy and I hardly go two or three days without being asked to make them for someone :)"
"Very good but a little too sweet."
"These were the greatest little apple pies I have ever made. If you use the frozen little tarts, you don't have to use the oven which makes these the quickest summer treats that taste good."
"Very tasty. I would make the crusts a little thinner though."
"I made these and everybody that tried them thought they were great"
"I made the crust in a larger muffin pan to make a bigger serving. I am freezing some and take them out just before serving and use pie filling with shipped topping. Quick."
"These are so excellent. The only thing I did differently was to use light butter. Yummy!"
"This was excellent, I would like to ask what mullenpm thought? since this is someplace where you can tell us what you thought after you made it? otherwise, you telling us the obvious, is pure ridiculous for your comment. Those of us that DID make it, seemed to have enjoyed it? 3, yes 3, T sugar for 10 servings..does not make it prohibitive for Diabetics, if you are Diabetic you know how to exchange this!!!!"
"No recipe which calls for sugar is "diabetic friendly" - and the fat free ice cream topping also contains sugar."
"Family gobbled up. Only thing I changed was I used 1/2 cup melted caramels instead of ice cream caramel topping also doubled recipe and forgot lemon juice didn't seem to notice. I also made my own pie dough sweetened with sugar"
"I made these for Thanksgiving using baked mini phyllo shells - so easy (Mike filled the shells) and very good for the apple pie lover thats full. They should not be baked in mini muffin tins because the shell needs to be crisp."
"This was very easy and they taste very good. Nice one bite to pop in your mouth! Definitely make it again."
"I have not made them as yet but will soon. I was wondering if I could use the frozen tart shells from the grocery store. Thanks BJ"
"Huge hit at cockatil parties and easy to make!"
"This was absolutely delicious and a hit with my family! I actually opted to make the crust with my homemade crust instead of from the store and it was phenomenal. My roommate has requested these for her reception!"
"I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF MARY KELLY EVER LIVED IN FARIBAULT, MN. MY NEIGHBOR LADY WAS MARY KELLEY. SHE WAS THE BEST NEIGHBOR FOR MAKING BAKED GOODS."
"Yummy and satsfying sweet treat"
"The printing hotlink is broken. Again."
