Who ever said that you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Well just because I’m on weight watchers now, doesn’t mean I can’t treat myself to something delicious and sweet. I still get my sweet tooth every once in a while and well simply put, we just need to make better and healthier choices. So these mini apple pies are so yummy and they just hit the spot. And you know what the best part of it all is? 4 of these little apple pies have only 3 points!

We all know how good apples are for you and let’s face it, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. :) And this way makes eating apples a pleasure.

I love wonton wrappers because there are so few calories in them and they are very versatile. You can pretty much fill them with anything.

I don’t really have step by step pictures for this recipe because it was just too simple to make. The hardest part was really just peeling and cutting the apples.

Prepare a muffin tray by spraying each muffin cup with cooking spray then lay a wonton wrapper in each muffin cup.

In a sauce pan you just add the water, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and flour and whisk over medium heat until mixture thickens as the flour cooks. Add the apples to the sauce pan and continue cooking for another 10 minutes until the apples are soft. Then simply drop a tablespoonful of the apple mixture in each muffin cup.

Bake in a preheated 375 F degree oven for about 10 minutes, or until the wonton wrappers begin to get brown. Serve and enjoy, you could probably add some whipped cream to them but I didn’t want the extra calories, this was good enough and like I said it hit the spot.

      You could, I’ve refrigerated mine for a day and they were fine, though not as crispy. Since they only take 10 min to bake, perhaps you could bake them right before serving if the oven is free and prepare them the day before.

    Made these in apple & cherry for my church luncheon. They are so easy, & good. Everyone enjoyed them. I will be making these with other fillings for other events.

      I kept them in the fridge and they will get a bit soggy, but I kept them in the fridge for a couple days and they were still not too bad. Of course they’re the best when they’re fresh.

    I love minis…Mini pies are no exception. I realized the reason I love miniatures is that they remind me of the value of living life in moderation. A little dose of this and that lets you taste the flavors without going overboard, without overindulging.
    These mini apple pies are just perfect! In size and in taste!

      Absolutely Anna, you are so right. I came home from work on Friday had my dinner and I had a couple of these mini apple pies, and I can’t tell you how flavorful they were, and just enough so make me feel satisfied. But they were so delicious, I love them cold, tasted just like I had a slice of apple pie.
