Apple ginger mini pies (mini pies de jengibre y canela)













Although I love autumn and winter very much, I am always surprised by the first signs of Spring.
Here spring begins on September 21, more than ever the flowers of the trees are like a miracle. 

We have had a bad winter, very icy and without rain and this is the worst, the planet really has a problem of climate change in that the seasons are no longer the same. 
What will happen to the apricots, peaches and others? Only we have to wait . 

In the old times the people of the countryside lived in seasonal changes, the summers, and then the autumn in which the nature rests and then the winter in which we need the rain, and all begin again.
But just now nothing is sure.
Oh well, I made these  apple mini pies.
I love apples and especially apple pie!

  21. YUmm, these pies look delicious, never thought of pairing apple and ginger, alway associated ginger with pears. You are right about the weather, even here in the maldives we have really strong winds these days and when it gets hot its searing hot. nothing is sure when it comes to weather.
