My daughter brought me the book Family Funstuff Bible Stories Preschool and said she wanted to do one of the activities with the kids and would it be okay if she made the recipe that went with it! Oh yes! I just love it when she takes the initiative to do special things for her siblings. As it worked out she made them for all of us to enjoy for dessert!
The recipe was very easy. She even let her little sister help make the apple tarts. It is simply 1 can of refrigerated biscuits separated and flattened a little on the pan. We use Pillsbury Grands and have made them with the JR and regular size. When making the regular size biscuits just add a little more time for baking.
Top that with a couple of tablespoons of apple pie filling. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until the apples are hot and the biscuits are slightly browned.
Make a powdered sugar glaze while the Apple Tarts are baking. Mix 1 teaspoon melted butter mixed with 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. Make sure and cream together well. Then add just enough milk to make it a thin glaze. Be careful pouring the milk. It only takes a small amount.
This is about the consistency I like the glaze, but you can make it as thick or thin as you like adding the milk little by little.
With a spoon drizzle the glaze over each apple tart! My family loves these. They are super easy to put together for a quick dessert. You can also add dollop of whipped cream or even a small scoop of ice-cream!
While we all enjoyed eating the tarts Faith asked the kids the questions that were in the book. What would have happened had I not followed the directions? What happens when we don’t follow God’s directions? A great treat and lesson to go with it!
What an amazing kiddo! I can see a love of teaching growing in her… and what a fun activity idea! you are a good mama, encouraging her to try new things, and to cook. 🙂
That looks tasty and perfect for littles!!! So happy you shared this! I am DEF going to try it with Ian!

Those do look good – when our apples come into season this fall I’ll have to try it!
Yum. One of very few things I like about living in the Netherlands is their apple tarts.
