20(ish)-- Apple Pot Pies

Oh my! Apple pie!  Bring these out for your Easter festivities. 

At this point in my life (exhausted from growing a baby in my belly) I am so NOT about spending time in the kitchen and so want to just GET IT DONE! They are so much easier to make than apple pie, but just as tasty.  AND a bit healthier.  I even included the nutrient breakdown to prove it.

Apple Pot Pies
Serves 4

6 Golden Delicious apples, cored and sliced into very thin slices
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
Baking spray
4 sheets phyllo dough

In a medium mixing bowl, combine apple slices, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Toss to coat.

Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray.  Add apple mixture and heat over medium heat.  Saute until apples are softened, 10-15 minutes.  When apples are soft, sprinkle mixture with flour and mix to coat.  Remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat four ramekins with baking spray.  Evenly spoon apple mixture into ramekins.

In a cutting board, lay out one sheet of phyllo dough, spray with baking spray, then layer with additional three layers, spraying between each one.  Cut into four even squares.

Lay one square onto each ramekin and press phyllo dough down onto apples, leaving edges to drape over ramekin.

Bake for 8-10 minutes on the middle rack, or until phyllo is lightly brown.  Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.
