Grilled apple pies
SmartPoints® value per serving
Grilling individual apple pies is a fun and unexpected recipe: It makes the transition from summer to fall a little sweeter by using a favourite warm-weather cooking method to add robust charred notes to an autumn fruit superstar. We use store-bought pie dough for ease; be sure to roll it out thinner and larger than it comes (and reroll scraps) so that you can get nine four-inch circles from it. If you have leftovers, reheat them in a 350°F oven for 5 minutes—because these pies are best enjoyed warm.
2 cup(s), peeled and diced (about 1 large)
Unpacked brown sugar
Refrigerated pie crust, unprepared
7 oz, (half of a 14.1-oz pie crust)
- Coat an outdoor grill rack with nonstick spray. Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
- Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add apples; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in brown sugar; cook until apples are tender, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon.
- Unroll pie dough onto a piece of parchment paper. Roll dough into a 12½-inch circle. Cut out 7 (4-inch) dough circles. Reroll scraps and cut out 2 more (4-inch) circles. Spoon about 1 tbsp apple filling into the center of each dough circle. Fold dough over filling to form a half-circle; press edges together with the tines of a fork to seal.
- Arrange pies on grill rack; grill until lightly charred and crust is done, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
