Game Day Snack!

Fall is officially in the air and with that comes a cool, crisp breeze, warm hot coco, rainy nights and game day events! So what better way to end Saturday evening than by posting 2 great game day side snacks. Check out these gummy recipes below!

Potato Chips with Avocado Ranch Dip:
Start by thinly slicing potatoes.

Lay out the potatoes and brush lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. These get put into a fairly hot oven and then baked into golden glory goodness. Drain them on a baking rack, paper bag or kitchen towel.

For the dip, we’re going to start with creamy and ripe avocados.

Mix in Greek yogurt, lemon juice, a cocktail of spices and herbs and mash in the avocados for a dip that is made for those hearty potato chips.

 Apple Pie Bites:

  • 1 9″ pie crust
  • 2 apples, diced
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp bourbon or rum (optional)

1 egg beaten with 1 Tbsp water (for egg wash)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. To make the filling, combine the diced apples, flour, sugars, cinnamon, salt, and bourbon or rum. Stir until well coated.

Roll the piecrust out to about 1/4″ thick. Using a 4″ cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out circles. Drop 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoon of the filling on to each circle of dough.

Fold the top of the dough over the bottom, and seal the edges. Place the pies on the baking sheet and brush with the egg wash. Cut a small slit in the top of each pie.

Bake 30-40 minutes or until golden brown, makes about 10 bite-sized pies. 
add to a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a great dessert!
