Apple Pie Bites

I’m always on the lookout for bite-sized recipes that are perfect for parties and potlucks. The other day, the mini Athens phyllo shells were on sale, so I decided to whip up some apple pie bites, based loosely on a recipe I saw on the Athens website. Oh mama, are they good! They’re just the […]
