Easy Apple Pies

Ingredients:
canned biscuits
apple pie filling
cinnamon sugar

Flatten out each biscuit
Put a tablespoon of pie filling in center
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar
Fold biscuit over and press edges together
Place on baking sheet and bake until golden

This smells so yummy.

We love to read this book with these.  How to Make an Apple Pie and see the World ~

 I love this easy little recipe.  It is fun to do at home or works easily with a larger group.  We have made them in kindergarten several times !
