Wonton Apple Pies

There are not a lot of spells to make something smaller. Bigger, frequently makes more sense- if you’ve got a faithful dog, and you’re trying to intimidate someone, it makes much more sense to make the dog larger than to make it smaller. A small horse can carry almost nothing- a giant horse can carry an entire party! In many ways, most of the time, bigger is better! But when it comes to special treats or desserts, I tend to want something a bit more moderate, like these mini apple pies.

I get creative when I have extra of an ingredient to use up. This recipe came about because I had ordered pecans from a fundraiser, so I was trying to find more uses for pecans. Also, I’d made vegan rangoons, but was still long on wonton wrappers. I was presently out of green onions and vegan cream cheese, so making more of those was out of the question! Add to that a few extra apples just begging to be used, and necessity gives way to invention.  I decided to turn my wrappers into tiny pies, with a pecan crumble on top!

I feel bad that I have no idea how well these keep- we made a dozen and ate all of them hot out of the oven! I had to rush them over to the window to get a picture of them before we polished them off! I don’t usually have a craving for many traditional dessert items, but I am a bit of a sucker for apple pie and crisp! This wound up being somewhere between the two!
