Let's talk baking and why it can be terrifying. I have admitted to you before, my talents do not lie in the baking department. I mean the pressure of having to measure everything so perfectly and follow the recipe to a tee takes all the fun out of why I love to be in the kitchen in the first place.
And while I am not the most skilled baker, I do frequently get in a baking mood. I have several recipes that I keep on hand to pull out that do not take much time or thought and usually I have most of the ingredients on hand. This is how I usually end up baking...I get in the mood which is followed by rummaging through my pantry to see what I have in there already and that usually dictates what I end up making.
These cute little baby apple pies were the result of a really rainy day, where I was stuck inside and you can probably guess what happened next...yep, I was forced to bake something. I had just bought quite a few of my favorite honey crisp apples, and thought hmm...of course, apple pies!
