Have you ever had a craving for a serving-sized sweet dessert? Or desserts that were easier to serve at a gathering? Then this fall recipe is for you!  It gives you the same warm, cinnamon taste and flaky crust as regular apple pie does, without having to go to all the trouble of making the pie. You’ll love this sweet holiday treat!

  • ¼ c. packed light brown sugar
