Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)
May 14, 2013

This has been an amazing day. I went to the Academy for Talented Young People today and I couldn’t make it to school before. So i spend my morning doing a couple of nice things.
Among other things I did this:

Tiny Apple Pies

Tiny + apple + pie = perfect :-)

I have a thing for small things. I really don’t know why. They are just cute. And when it comes to food “tiny” means that you can eat more of the same thing. WIN!

But the apple pies was just one of the things that made my morning wonderful…

I started the morning with a great run. And it was raining! Yay – perfect.
Yep, perfect. I love rain. It makes me so happy. I know it sounds crazy but well, we are all crazy in some ways aren’t we? Rain really make me feel free. Alive. Running, walking, jumping on the trampoline in rain – best thing ever. In the weekend when we went to my summerhouse, my brother, 3 smaller cousins and I went jumping on the trampoline when it was pouring down. Haha, that’s the best.

I also spend this morning searching for datas for a big assignment I’m doing in the school. During high school you have to make 3 big assignments – one in 1. grade (sophomore), one in 2. grade (junior) and one in 3. grade (senior). I’m what equals a sophomore. Finally I found out what subject I want to write about. Wonderful.

After having heard a very interesting presentation at the academy I went on a little shopping with some friends. So nice! I bought a new pair of running shorts and a sports bra – YAY! And a cute summer dress. I’m so happy. Aaaaaand we had ice cream. The event at the academy took place at the high school in Ørestaden, which is the eastern part of Copenhagen. All the buildings here are brand new and SO cool. Just take a look at the picture below :-)

So pretty much a wonderful day:

Running, biking, cooking, photography, an interesting presentation, shopping, ice cream, blogging and new clothes. What’s not to love?

The only thing we need now is a recipe:

Tiny Apple Pies

16 pies
For the crust
  • 70 g. butter
  • 125 g. flour
  • 50 g. sugar
  • 1 egg
For the filling
  • 100 g. applesauce
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cardamom
Preheat oven to 220° C / 430° F.
Start by making the crust:
Mix cold butter, flour and sugar in a bowl. The mixture should end up looking like shredded cheese. Add in the egg and mix very well. Eventually refrigerate for 10 minutes.
For the filling mix everything together.

1) Roll out the dough and stick out small rounds using a small glass.
2) Add a teaspoon of pie filling
3) Close the pies using a fork
4) Make little hole using a fork to make sure the pies don’t crack

Bake for 5-10 minutes (depending on your oven).

Cool down and enjoy!

Stor in an airtight container.

  1. These are adorable. I love tiny desserts too! I like the idea of using applesauce, no need to peel and cut apples. I know the kids will love em.
