Farm Share Dessert

We got two Fuji apples in our farm share this week and Hungry Girl's newsletter included an "Apple Pie Bites" recipe that called for Fuji apples. It seemed like the perfect pairing so I had to do it. It was quick to make and pretty tasty. The fillo shells have a definite crunch to them and the apples are soft and just a little sweet. My husband and I ate the whole 15 pies ourselves even though it says that makes five servings. I would absolutely do them again. Here is the link directly to Hungry Girl (just scroll down) and I have pasted their recipe below.
