I’ve always tried to stay away from politics on this blog, because sometimes it’s nice to think only through one’s stomach.

Hopefully these apple hand pies can let you do just that, even if only for a few minutes.

These mini apple pies do really well at parties and are a big hit at Friendsgiving.

They’re easy to serve, need no refrigeration, and are the perfect size for people who want just a little dessert or who don’t want to commit to one giant slice of pie.

If you’re looking for a more traditional pie, here is my favorite recipe: Healthy Apple Pie Recipe.

 

How To Make The Mini Apple Pies:

apple batter

Step One:

Prepare the muffin tin, then peel and finely dice the apple, and set it aside.

Stir together the first 6 ingredients to make a crumbly crust.

Step Two:

Press around 2 tsp of the crumble dough firmly into the bottom of each muffin tin. Stir remaining ingredients in a bowl, and place a little over 1 tsp of this apple filling on top of each crust.

Divide the remaining crumbles over the apples, pressing firmly down.

Step Three:

Bake for 14 minutes or until the crust is golden and mostly set.

Let cool before removing from the muffin tins, then serve or transfer to a covered container to serve at a later time.

If you want to vary the filling, feel free to substitute diced pear for the apple.

Or you could honestly fill them with anything you wish!

Mini Apple Pies – Baked In A Muffin Tin
4.92/512

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup spelt, white, or ap gf flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unrefined sugar
  • 3 1/2 tbsp cold buttery spread (or oil, see note)
  • 3/4 cup peeled, finely-diced apple
  • 1 tsp arrowroot or non-gmo cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup, agave, or honey
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

*Using oil will yield a crispier crust, while using non-hydrogenated buttery spread will yield a softer crust. Both will work fine for this recipe.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a mini muffin tin. If desired, put a thin strip of parchment inside each tin (see photo). Set aside. Combine the first 6 ingredients, completely breaking up the butter until fine crumbles form. Press around 2 tsp dough firmly into the bottom of each tin. Stir together remaining ingredients in a bowl, and place a little over 1 tsp of this apple filling on top of each crust. Divide remaining crumbles—around 2 additional tsp per muffin tin—over the apples, pressing firmly down. Bake on the center rack, 14 minutes or until crust is golden and mostly set. Let cool at least 5 minutes before either pulling up the parchment strip or simply going around the sides of the pies with a knife.

  1. Laurie says

    These look so good! I am confused, are apples part of the crust mixture? In the list of the first 8 ingredients the apples are included, I think. Which ingredients go into the filling? Sorry if this is a silly question, but I would really like to try these. Thanks

  2. Jillian says

    I am also a little confused like Laurie! can you please clarify? the apples are part of the first eight but then you mention the apples at the end. did you maybe mean the first6 ingredients and not 8?

  3. Nicola says

    These look scrumptious, and also like they’d be particularly scrumptious with peaches?! Must try (will try with apples first)

  4. Rebecca Sherman says

    I want to make something sugar free for my diabetic dad for Thanksgiving, and these sounded like a good option. Any thoughts on how to do that with stevia? (I went out and got a bottle of nuNaturals stevia at Whole Foods per your recommendation.)

  5. Kate says

    These look perfect for a smaller dessert, and so seasonally perfect–I was just at the apple orchard!
    Also, I love your new blog format–it’s a little more user-friendly but still familiar!

  6. Leslie says

    Katie. I appreciate the comment at the beginning of your post. This is definitely a time of uncertainty but I appreciate your focus on things that we do have in common–like appreciation of chocolate and other sweets. ? Your sweet heart is part of the reason I follow your blog.

  7. Fluffberries says

    Thanks for the recipe Katie, this looks so delicious! I’m devastated by the election results, I cried for hours and it’s terrifying knowing that half the country openly hates me and people like me. Browsing your blog and looking at the delicious food is always calming… :’)

    • Anonymous says

      Also sending hugs. Don’t be afraid. No one hates you. During elections we often overstate how bad “the other side” is. Neighbor will not turn on neighbor. And we know Katie will make sure we have a reason to come together over some good desserts and understand each other better.

      • Vera says

        They are already expressing their hate across the country. And the people they are targeting are our neighbors, children and still at least as of today equal citizens.

    • Brandy Armstrong says

      I just wanted to comment on this bc i felt the same way since Tuesday but then I remembered the MAJORITY of this country DOESN’T hate us. In fact only about 20% of population voted for hate. Hope that helps you like it does me on the harder to stay positive days. And i hope as a nation we can now try to figure out how we are alike rather than focus on our differences. When all else fails eat some chocolate :). Sending love & hugs to everyone who is scared, worried or depressed.

          • TB says

            Wow, it’s so ironic that people who supported hatred, bigotry, ignorance, mysogyny, and INTOLERANCE to differences are now calling people who are asking for all of us to show love and understanding to all intolerant. Wow. Take a look in the mirror. You are the one being intolerant….to others’ feelings, their way of life, their opinions…you name it. All of the comments from Trump supporters on here have been nasty and vitriolic. Is this the kind of America we will have under Trump?? Is this really the kind of country you want us to be??

      • Diane R. says

        This is exactly why people voted for change – sick and tired of being judged as racist, or hateful because we, more than half of the American people, disagree with a political candidate’s views. “Voted for hate”. Seriously? You are part of the reason the country is so divided by posting rhetoric like this. Go to your “safe space”, and grow up and get over it. It’s called democracy. Why not focus your sympathy and concerns on our military men and women serving and have served so you can continue to voice your “opinion”. No room for this on a food blog.

    • Sandra says

      No, no, half the country doesn’t openly hate you. I’m sorry that you feel that way. It is certainly not justified. No one hates you. Where is that coming from? Makes no sense. Those to be feared are those holding these protests, the Hillary supporters… we all should fear what they are advocating, like assassination, killing others in civil war (lives will be lost on both sides, they say)….. those are the haters, not the “half the country” that supports Trump. Those protesters are the Hillary supporters who advocate violence, and they are the true deplorables, right along with Hillary. We will ALL, including you, be better off without her as our president. So take heart, things are looking up for you. Anyone who is a decent, law-abiding citizen has nothing to fear from Donald Trump… we need fear only those who are sore losers and cannot support our country and try to help to make it a better place for all, but instead, want to destroy it with uprisings and civil war and killings. How sad.

      • nat says

        Sandra, your words are well said. It is amazing how blind people are to the truth!! People that lean right have been silenced for fear of the intolerant left and now we have hope again…everyone should have hope again. I have faith that this will be one of the most fair president for ALL…Trump will save America!

      • TB says

        I find it telling that you said half the country doesn’t OPENLY hate. NO ONE ran a more divisive, hateful, fear-mongering, or deplorable campaign than Donald Trump. The fact that half of our country feels the way he does is what is truly sad.

        • Arielle says

          Please wake up to the fact that we have a corrupt and controlled media. Trump did not run a “divisive , hateful, fear-mongering, deplorable campaign”. That was the media who devised that perception; the media which is controlled by those with vested interest in the Globalist Agenda. People who are putting faith in those networks as viable and reliable sources of information will have their minds easily controlled and manipulated. Trump is not perfect, but if you truly investigate to find out what he is really about and what his so-called “hateful” statements really meant, you’d find out he is not the racist/sexist/etc. person that he has been portrayed as by the media. And if you do some investigative research into Hillary Clinton, you’ll see how lucky we are that this frighteningly deplorable criminal did not make it into the presidency. To truly elucidate the situation far exceeds the scope of a recipe blog comment forum. I highly encourage any and all to do your own research and find answers from reliable and honest sources. You could start with Infowars.com, Drudgereport.com or even WikiLeaks.org. There are many others but just please avoid the mainstream corporate-controlled ones as you’ll be hard-pressed to find any truth there.

          • Snoop says

            Well said Arielle. The media is to blame for the negative hype and sensationalism. I only watch HGTV right now because there is nothing political on those shows!

          • jen_scrapbooker says

            While I do agree some venues of media, particularly cable news channels, have blown some aspects of the campaign out of proportion, they certainly did not make Mr. Trump say some of the things he did – banning all Muslims from entering the country, building a wall to separate us from Mexico, etc. Reporting on direct quotes made by the candidate themselves is not being corrupt. He made those central points of his campaign and, yes, there is a backlash to that from members of those groups and their friends, family, coworkers and others who are speaking up on their behalf. I certainly do not support or advocate the violence during some of the protests, though. I think there were many reasons people chose to vote for Mr. Trump and while some of them probably were racially or religiously supportive of his comments targeting Muslims and Hispanics, I believe many were not.

      • Pat says

        Sandra, I am a law abiding citizen! and I have a lot to fear from Mr. Trump and his supporters. Perhaps you have failed to remember the violence and intolerance Trump and his supporters displayed during his campaign?
        I think you are overlooking the effect Trump and his alt-right supporters will have on the United States and the World into the distant future.
        Are you ready to have your retirement plans and SSI, Medicare (remember Paul Ryans plan?) and Medicaid, clean air, clean water, the national parks, pubicaly owned lands, the oceans and your children’s and grand childrens’ futures destroyed so that he and his cronies can “make ‘Merica strong again?”
        How will Mr. Trump help the people suffering in the Rust Belt when Ronald Reagan’s policies started their econimic decline. And, the Republicians have done nothing to interceed even though they have been in control of the House since 1995. They are the law makers and they have done nothing to help!
        How will Mr. Trump and his followers protect our dream of living the Americian dream if we not wealthy, are severly under educated, are disabled, are not white or straight or male? How will it come to be that those that are suffering due to neglect by the lawmakers for the past 20 years will be changed by Mr. Trump and his alt-right cabinet?

        • J'Marinde says

          Re: “suffering due to neglect by the lawmakers for the past 20 years”
          Loathe that I am to take part in this sticky “discussion” of politics, make that the past 36 years… To my recall and experience, it was the Reagan’s, particularly Nancy, who started the hate-on for ‘others’ and the non-wealthy, which seems to be still going on.

          On yet another note, Katie PLEASE fix your comments text size. It is SO tiny that I need to hold a magnifying glass to see what I am writing. I am not the best typist (after FIVE typing classes I can do about 20 WPM WITH errors, LOTS of errors – – might the MS.) Thanks.

          • Pat says

            J’Marinde, I really appreciate your response. You are also correct. It has been 36 years since the start of Republican policies that have brought the poor and struggling middle class to this crisis.

            For those that didn’t realize the “lawmakers” I spoke of in my earlier post are the Republicans in the House of Representatives. They have been in control of the House for the past 20 years. They have done their best to ignore their elected duty to pass Bills which would bring about the needed change to protect us or help our current situation.

            It is so demoralizing to me that so many voters have not learned from our recent history or choose not to educate themselves about the manipulalting games played by those that want to control our freedoms. Learning from history and understanding the motives of the people that control our lives is energy intensive and we are in surivial mode! Poverty, poor education, unemployment, homelessness, poor and inadequate health/dental/vison care, fear of terrorism, and many other stressors are huge distractions that sap the energy and metal drive we need to question why and who is behind our problems and how we, as individuals, can solve those problems. As long as we remain preoccupied with only surviving the current situation we will continue to perpetuate those problems to the advantage of those in control.

        • Sandra says

          Pat, in regard to your comments about “violence and intolerance” of Trump and his supporters….. that was absolutely nothing, few in number, very tame demonstrations in comparison to what I’ve been seeing on the news for three days from the Hillary supporters. These people are the haters. Thousands and thousands of them. They are unbelievable. Their behavior is inexcusable. Trump supporters have not behaved in such a deplorable manner. These people are trying to start a civil war and advocating killings and violence and destruction. If you’ve missed this, please turn on your TV and catch up on the news. Watch the haters beat a man just because he voted for Trump, no other reason. These people need to be locked up along with Hillary.
          As for SSI, Medicare, and other things you mentioned in your list, those have been in trouble already for years under Democratic presidents. They’ve been dipping into the Social Security and Medicare funds to the point that Trump will have a hard time trying to build them back up again, if that is even possible now, along with many other things that have declined under all those years under Obama’s and Clinton’s presidencies, including the enormous increase in the national debt. They have put America on the road to destruction. We can only hope that it isn’t too late for Trump to be able to turn it around. You are so misinformed about so many things, both about Trump and about the current administration. Obama has done very little for America, Bill Clinton did very little for America, but they both did a lot to contribute to the decline of America. I feel so bad for Trump to have to come in now and try to straighten up their messes.
          You spoke of neglect of the lawmakers for the past 20 years…. that would be Clinton and Obama, the two top lawmakers of that time period. But you only mentioned the House. How convenient. It’s easy for people to blame their problems on “the lawmakers” and not take responsibility for themselves, which is all too often the case. Too many people just want hand-outs.
          How can you think that Trump is out to “destroy” things? So not true. Stop listening to all the hype and lies and fear-mongerers out there and start believing in America and its new leaders. You will be so much better off if you will do that. Things are going to get better, although it will take some time to straighten out the messes and problems, and there are plenty of them that need to be fixed.
          So much more could be said, but this is not the place to do it.

          • Pat says

            Sandra, thanks for the laugh. Please stop watching television and please educate yourself. Why haven’t you commented about about all the horrible acts perpretated by Trump supporters on the LGBTs, immigrants, and those with different ethnic background or skin color since he’s been elected?
            Read the Constitution and learn how bills are passed. Pay special attention to the 12th Amendment. Learn on how impeachment is brought about and how the electorial college can change the out come a presidential election. If Mr. Trump survives impeachment he will be no more than a puppet of his corrupt cronies and criminal manipulators like Putin.
            Actually, Mr. Trump is already looking very uninterested in assuming the presidential duties – didn’t show for any Vetren’s Day activities – oh, that’s right he has a history of stealing their donations, calling heros cowards if the were caputred and disrespecting Gold Star Families. Not to worry, his minions – from Brietbart and KellyAnne – will generate enough spin to quelch the non-thinkers. Fortunately, there are thokse who are not as gullible. Then, you’ll have to deal with Pence.

        • altamama says

          Great blog and recipes!! just discovered it. I like reading comments on things, and then – what did I see but political views back in November!! of 2016…… Sandra and Pat, what do you think of the political scene now?? Pretty weird to say the least! Your neighbours to the north are watching with amusement, shock, and awe all at once. When I get tired of it all, I go and look up a delicious recipe and I eat it……

      • TB says

        It’s time you did some educating of your own and take hard and honest look at what Trump really stood for during this election.. I already know the truth.

        • Valerie says

          That monster will NEVER be my president. These people holding him up as some sort of savior now are those who’ve perpetuated the hate and racism toward the Obamas for the past eight years. I’m not one to hold hate in my heart but that man will get no respect from me. He’s the lowest of the low.

          • Em says

            Well, Valerie, I suggest you find a new country to live in and create your own little liberal fantasy land where everyone agrees with your viewpoint. You obviously have no tolerance for a democratic society where everyone’s voice counts, whether you like their point of view or not, and where your opinion isn’t better than theirs. I am so sick of this entitlement attitude. BTW, Hillary is also described by many as a Monster. She’s just more secretive about it.

      • Sandra says

        Pat said:
        Sandra, thanks for the laugh. Please stop watching television and please educate yourself.
        hmmm…. perhaps you yourself are so uninformed and uneducated because you don’t watch TV…

        Why haven’t you commented about about all the horrible acts perpretated by Trump supporters on the LGBTs, immigrants, and those with different ethnic background or skin color since he’s been elected?
        Those horrible acts were not Trump supporters, they were anti-Trump protestors, they were Clinton supporters who are sore losers. They refuse to accept Trump’s election. You need to watch more TV. Or online news. Do you need me to give you some links?

        Read the Constitution and learn how bills are passed. Pay special attention to the 12th Amendment. Learn on how impeachment is brought about and how the electorial college can change the out come a presidential election. If Mr. Trump survives impeachment he will be no more than a puppet of his corrupt cronies and criminal manipulators like Putin.
        Speaking of criminals….. that would be Hillary….. or rather Killary, who is responsible for the deaths of others as well as her criminal activities involving the e-mails. Go buy and read some of the many books written about Hillary and also her husband. She truly is dishonest, a liar, crooked, evil, and a law-breaker. We sure don’t need the likes of her in the White House.

        Actually, Mr. Trump is already looking very uninterested in assuming the presidential duties – didn’t show for any Vetren’s Day activities –
        You are really stretching it to try to find fault with that. That, my dear, to Trump’s credit, was out of respect for Obama. There can only be one president at a time, and right now, it’s still Obama, and it was only proper for Trump to allow him his last time for this ceremony without interference. Trump’s time is coming. Trump will do much more for our troops and our veterans than Obama has done or that Hillary would do. You people need to quit desperately trying to find fault with everything just for the sake of finding fault.

        oh, that’s right he has a history of stealing their donations, calling heros cowards if the were caputred and disrespecting Gold Star Families.
        These and other statements like these are either outright lies or misunderstandings and exaggerations. People open their mouths without getting all the facts.

        Not to worry, his minions – from Brietbart and KellyAnne – will generate enough spin to quelch the non-thinkers. Fortunately, there are thokse who are not as gullible. Then, you’ll have to deal with Pence.
        The nonthinkers are the gullible Clinton supporters who can’t see beyond the “what am I gonna get outta this?” mindset, thinking selfishly only of themselves instead of the good of the country as a whole.
        I can’t figure out what you were laughing about….. however, I will be laughing on the day that Obama and his flag-burning wife leave the White House.

        And with that, I have better things to do. I’m outta here.

    • Maria says

      The recipe looks great, can’t wait to try it! Please forgive me for straying from the topic, but I must respond to the comment made even though it has nothing to do with food. I’ve never written a comment of this nature, but feel compelled to do so in this case. You are very mistaken if you think that people who voted differently than you hate you. I can’t speak for anyone but myself, but I know that I always give people a fair shake, based on who they are inside, and how they conduct themselves….not on what gender, sexual orientation, or race they are. The noisiest people get the most attention and right now the haters are making a lot of noise… and not conducting themselves in a very productive way. It is very limited thinking to assume an entire group of people hates you because they don’t agree with your political views. You really should check your facts about your opposing candidate, and the one you voted for. Everything is not as black-and-white as the media makes it out to be. The mainstream media is very biased. Open your eyes and ears and check out information from a variety of sources…. You may be surprised at what you find. Please keep an open mind and heart. I hope that this country can heal from this election drama…hatred, fear and divisiveness are not the answer. I wish you well.

      • June says

        Katie, you are great and you meant well and I support your thoughts, much love!
        Maria, you have stated it well. We, as a country need to remember in who’s hand we are really in…..man or God? This behavior that some are exhibiting is hateful and makes me wonder about the caliber of the people that voted in opposition of our President. I have a gut feeling that if Mrs. Clinton would have won, those in opposition of her would not have behaved as outlandish as I am seeing her supporters behave. This is really crazy and unsettling….I feel for our children that are seeing how the adults of the world handle themselves or don’t handle themselves. I personally didn’t care for either one but I did vote and now I will see how I can make this world a better place. God bless

        • Kenitra says

          Seriously? The gun toting right wing, neonazi, kkk supporters of trump? You’re right they wouldn’t be holding for the most part peaceful protests, more likely they would be out there executing people of colour, lgbtq people and those of other religions.

          • Em says

            Are you seriously calling those who supported trump a gun toting, neonate, KKK supporters. HMMMM, that just sounds ridiculous on so many levels. And it sounds like something a very uneducated, close-minded, entitled, self-righteous (I could go on) Clinton supporter would say. And for the record, you are so very wrong. Get a life.

          • Snoop says

            I voted for Trump and I do not own a gun. I don’t support the KKK. I am not a neonate. I have my reasons for voting for him and they have nothing to do with hate. He wasn’t my choice for the republican nominee, but after careful consideration and research, that is who I voted for. I am actually surprised he won. By the way, our government has a system of checks and balances. We did not elect a dictator. Everyone calm down.

  8. GiGi says

    These look so yummy! Im a bit confused, is the bottom and the top crust the first 6 ingredients? What are the ingredients for the apple filling? Is it the diced apples, maple syrup and vanilla? also instead of maple syrup could we use nu naturals vanilla stevia – Thanks!!!

  9. jill says

    honestly, I’ve loved your site and your recipes for years. Today, I have to stop coming out here. If I want politics, I’ll watch the news. And while this is your blog, you have every right to do whatever you would like. For me, I do as well. Please don’t forget, not all of your readers are liberal. And you also contribute to the divide by insensitive comments.

    • Eve says

      Not really understanding here. I’m a Conservative and don’t see anything partisan in her comments that are asking everyone (no matter how you voted, it says) to be compassionate during this time:

      No matter how you voted, please be extra compassionate towards others around you in the coming weeks. I’ve always tried to stay away from politics on this blog, because sometimes it’s nice to think only through one’s stomach.

        • Em says

          Katie, don’t let the haters get you down. It is sad that there are so many immature hate mongers looking for any opportunity to blame others for their problems and disappointments instead of taking responsibility and doing something productive and positive. Instead of being tolerant and open minded, they find it easier to belittle and destroy, rather than build up. Your words are important and you are entitled to express your opinion, as much as the next person. The ones who decide to stop following will be rapidly replaced by many others who love your recipes AND what you have to say. Thank you!!!!

    • Jean says

      Nothing here, written by Katie, was in any way divisive! We need to come together, if you can’t handle the comments others posted, you might be happier if you could be a little more tolerant of people who have different opinions. Please don’t leave, you are going to miss good food and kind people!

    • Amy says

      You are a perfect example of the biggest problem with this country. Lack of quality education and ignorance. Nothing in katies comments reflected her coice for the presidency or ‘political’ at all!

    • Dz says

      Bye.
      Adults should be able to agree to disagree. So many commenters are throwing stones in a glass house. This was an extremely divisive election where both parties felt passionately right and wronged. If Hillary Clinton would have won, protests would have ensued as well. Each side was gearing up. Neither are innocent.

    • Christine says

      What? Isn’t everyone tired after this long election? Katie didn’t say how she voted. Now, she had to send an apology letter to her email subscribers? Is this what you’re talking about: I’ve always tried to stay away from politics on this blog, because sometimes it’s nice to think only through one’s stomach.

      Hopefully these apple hand pies can let you do just that, even if only for a few minutes.

      What ON EARTH is mean-spirited about that statement? I am so confused. Katie, you have nothing to apologize for.

      • Kaleb says

        I agree, you have nothing to apologize for. All you did was to acknowledge the current event. This is a blog about healthy food so you utilized what I thought was a great transition.

  10. VL says

    Hi Katie, I love your recipes. I don’t have a *mini* muffin pan, but I have a standard muffin pan. Any idea how long to look the standard size individual apple pies? Thanks in advance.

  11. Christy says

    I don’t really care if this makes it on your comment section or not, but I just want to clear up something as someone who voted for Trump. I voted for him because I could not, would not EVER vote for Hillary. I am a Christian that believes every life deserves a chance, with the exception of dire health issues. I am a person that embraces diversity….as long as it’s legally achieved. I am a person that does not hate anyone for their sexual preference, I just don’t believe in same sex marriage. I’ve had co-workers in the past that were gay and an aunt. I love them. I enjoy them in my life. We just have a differing opinion, and quite frankly, that’s ok. My difference in opinion does not make me evil. I am tired of seeing where this country is headed. It is a great country and I would like to keep it that way. I do not support the affordable care act. It is not affordable and it has made it nearly impossible for so many people I know, myself included to afford healthcare. Something needs to change. Hillary would not have done it.

      Embracing diversity means loving everyone and accepting differences, not just when it is convenient for you. There is no room for asterisks or exceptions. You cannot claim to not hate a group of people while at the same time say they shouldn’t be afforded the same rights. Katie did not insult anyone for their vote. She asked for compassion for all. She was embracing diversity!

    I know your post has been edited and I think it’s a shame that others couldn’t respect your opinion- especially one that was aimed in trying to remind everyone to unite and be kind. The readers who complained should have shown more respect and tolerance, -/ there was no anger or intolerance in your words. I’m sorry you felt the need to edit but know I support this site and I can’t wait to try the newest recipes!

    These look delicious! I also really appreciate the email you send out today to subscribers, remembering that we all have different opinions and hope for the best for our country.

    Katie,
    I read the apology email that you sent today. I do not see how there was ANYTHING wrong with what you said in the previous email. Please do not feel bad. I’m starting to think that people just like to be offended. It’s like it’s a trendy thing to be offended. It’s like they’re constantly on the look-out for something that they can get upset about. They crave apologies. They want to make someone else the bad guy. But, you’re not the bad guy. You were very humble and loving. Don’t let your subscribers bring you down.

      Right?! Everyone nowadays needs something to be offended about it. No one can open their moths without someone throwing a hissy fit. Of all days, on today. Do you think veterans wasted they’re time being offended?

    I didn’t read your previous blog post so I have no idea what you wrote. However I believe that this is your blog and you have the right to express any opinion you choose. The people who should apologize are the ones trying to quiet other people’s voices when they disagree with them. EVERYONE has a right to express their opinion and heard!

    It was nice knowing your blog, but since I seem to be one of the “deplorables” that you Liberals loath, I will leave you in peace.

      As a Trump supporter, I have to say that if you can’t accept Katie’s gracious apology (which she really didn’t need to apologize for in the first place because she was asking BOTH sides to be more compassionate) then that really is deplorable.

    Thanks to freedom of speech, Katie can write whatever she wants to write about. And thanks to freedom of subscription, anyone can unsubscribe from whatever blog they want to.

  18. Katie says

    Wow. The hate from some of your readers baffles me. You’re not allowed to have an opinion? You hardly said anything at all! Katie, keep doing what you’re doing. You’re better off without anyone who would unfollow you because you have feelings over the future of your country.
