Mini Apple Pies

How adorable are these Mini Apple Pies? My friend asked me to make apple pie for our Southern dinner. I remembered that Lishie had made mini apple pies for a recipe swap awhile back so I went in search of the recipe.

These were so awesome and really easy to make. You all know I don't really bake so just stirring a few things together was right up my alley. I loved that these made individual servings rather than a big pie. We served these with some vanilla ice cream for a delicious treat after a tasty Southern meal.

Mini Apple Pies
As seen on DeLish Lishie

2 large honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored & thinly sliced
Juice of 2 lemons, plus the zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup sugar
4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
2 sheets refrigerated pie crust

Preheat oven to 425.

In a medium bowl, combine apples, lemon juice & zest, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Toss gently then set aside.

Unroll pie crust onto a work surface. Using a 4"-wide biscuit cutter, cut out six circles from each sheet, reserving scraps. Press each circle inside spaces of a muffin tin.

Evenly divide apple mixture into each prepared muffin cup. Cut reserved dough scraps into strips 1/4-inch. Top each pie with strips in a basket weave pattern or with cut shapes.

Bake until the crust is browned, about 18-20 minutes. Let pies cool in muffin tin, then remove.
Pin It!
