Cranberry Apple Hand Pies- cranberries, apples, nutmeg, and cinnamon they’ll be the sparkle in your holidays!
I like to enjoy a beautiful dessert with coffee after dinner, but sometimes a whole piece of pie just isn’t going to fit into my already full tummy. That’s when our adorable little Cranberry Apple Hand Pies are the perfect solution!
They’re filled with everything we love about pie but in a 3 bite size or maybe it might be 4 bites if you’re a dainty eater 🙂
I love to create for Truvia! I especially love their Brown Sugar Baking Blend… it tastes just like brown sugar but with 75% less calories. I’ll take less calories any day! Click here to find my other Truvia creations– you’ll love them all.
