Mini Apple Pies

I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather for most of the week, so I haven’t been doing much of anything except resting and trying to get healthy again. Even though I’m not quite feeling 100% yet, I was really hankering for a fresh-baked treat, so I decided it was time to do a little baking.

I’ve had one lonely, large apple sitting on my kitchen counter for several days now, and I really needed to use it in something. That “something” turned out to be in these Miniature Apple Pies.

These bite-sized little pies are wonderful to snack on when you just want a little something sweet, but you’re not quite hungry enough to eat a whole piece of pie – which is exactly the way I’ve been feeling this week.

~Enjoy~




Miniature Apple Pies

Crust:
1 cup Krusteaz Pie Crust Mix
2-3 tablespoons water

Filling:
1 large apple, peeled, cored and diced
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cold butter

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease and flour a 12 cup mini muffin pan.

Place pie crust mix in a small bowl. Sprinkle water (one tablespoon at a time) over mix while tossing with a fork, until moistened. Form dough into a ball. Flatten into round on floured surface. Roll dough to a thickness of 1/8 – 1/4 inch.

Using a medium-sized biscuit cutter, cut 12 circles from rolled out dough. Press one circle into the bottom and up the side of each muffin cup, to form little bowls.

In a medium bowl, combine diced apple, sugar, cinnamon and flour. Place a spoonful of apple mixture into each miniature crust. Cut butter into 12 little pieces and place one piece on top of each pie. Decorate the top of each pie with any remaining pie crust pieces, or leave plain.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until crust is light brown and apples are bubbling.
Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack.

Makes 12 miniature pies.

  1. These pies look terrific. I just used up a batch of Granny Smiths (will post tomorrow). I have recently become fascinated with making mini-pies in muffin tins. So – perfect timing!
