Cooking Activity
Mini Apple Pie Recipe

  • Give each cook a piece of biscuit dough.
  • The cooks will flatten their biscuit with their hands or a rolling pin,
    like a pancake.
  • Each kid will scoop a tablespoon of apple pie filling onto their dough.
  • They will shake the cinnamon sugar over their apple pie filling.
  • They will wet their finger and run it along the edges of the dough.
  • Fold the dough over and pinch the edges to seal, like a fortune cookie.
  • Put the apple pies into the toaster oven at 350 degrees until they are golden brown.
Be careful the apple filling will get hot!!

How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World

By Marjorie Priceman
In this whimsical, geographical shopping journey, a young baker thinks of how to proceed if the market is closed. She directs readers, via various modes of transportation, to gather seminola wheat in Italy, a chicken (for its egg) in France, bark from the kurundu (cinnamon) tree in Sri Lanka, a cow (for butter)
in England, salt water and sugar cane in Jamaica, and apples in Vermont.
Processing the worldly ingredients is quickly handled, a pie is baked, and friends are invited to share. A look around the table reveals children from all of the countries in which the foods have been found.
