Individual Phyllo Apple Walnut Pies (…for people who hate to make pie dough)

Individual Apple Phyllo Pies [...for people who hate to make pie dough.]

Raise your hand if you hate making pie dough? Obviously, I can’t see you…but I have a feeling a decent portion of you might have just emphatically nodded at your computer screen. I’ m actually one of those people that doesn’t hate to make pie dough from scratch, but I totally get it.

Today’s last-minute Thanksgiving individual apple walnut phyllo “pies” are for you. As you can probably already tell, instead of using traditional pie dough as a topping, today we’re going to be using phyllo dough.

Individual Apple Phyllo Pies [...for people who hate to make pie dough.]

If you’ve ever worked with phyllo dough in the past, you’ve probably come to realize that it can be tricky to work with, as it has a tendency to dry and crack easily, and you have to work rather quickly.

However, tearing the phyllo dough (particularly when you are only using one sheet per individual “pie”, as we do in this recipe) definitely removes the complication factor from phyllo dough.

Does phyllo dough taste like pie dough? No, not at all. But it has a lot of texture, and is definitely a fun alternative to a crisp or crumble, which is pretty much the only alternative out there. Plus, this recipe is more time-friendly than traditional pie!

It wouldn’t be #BrusselsSproutWeek without pasta! Ok, well, it wouldn’t be any week without a good heaping bowl of pasta, but that is an entirely different matter. You know that famous Sophia Loren quote, “Everything you see I owe to spaghetti.” That basically defines my life. In a nutshell. It...
