Bacon cheddar cheese apple mini pie

I saw some pictures of cheddar apple pie by “feeding maybelle” and decided to adapt the idea to clear up  some chopped apples in my fridge.  I wanted something crunchy to the filling so I added fried bacon.  The saltish sweet taste of these mini pies are uniquely delicious.  I like that they are mini and it is not too filling even if I take two but I took three after they were baked and I have to stop myself not to take the fourth! An idea came to my mind, these mini pies will be a great snacks to carry on a road trip. 

I am submitting this recipe to Aspiring Bakers #6: Say Cheese! (April 2011) hosted by Jean of Nom I must. To find out more click here. Do head over to Jean's blog, she has lots of great bakes. 

Makes 18 mini pies

2 ½ pieces of  10 x 10 inches Borg short crust

Ingredients for fillings:
1/1/4 cup chopped green apple
3 tbs brown sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 pcs fried bacon
2 ½ sheets short crust pastry

Put A in a small pot and cook till apple is slightly limb.  Fried bacon till crispy and drain away all facts. Cut bacon into bite size. Mix bacon bits and shredded cheddar cheese with half cooked apple. Cut out 36 pieces of round short crust dough about 2 ½ inches in diameter.  Place a teaspoon of filling in the center of each piece of cut-out dough and place another piece on top and seal it. Use a fork to poke some holes in the top crust and top with 2 thin slices of cheese crossing them.  Preheat oven at 170 degrees C. Bake the pie for 25 mins.  Serve warm.
