Mini pies have been popular for a while, but it wasn't until a few days ago that it occurred to me that I could make these myself. I found a recipe on
I think I am going to try this out tonight. I am not a fan of apple pie.....unless there is ice cream present, but DH (dear husband) loves them.
- 5 medium apples (peeled and chopped up into small pieces)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 6 tablespoons flour
- 2 tablespoons butter (chilled)
1Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Get muffin pan out. No need to grease it.
2In food processor blend flour, salt and butter until it looks like little peas.
3Add in water and blend just until it looks like it's sticking.
4Take out and combine it by hand until well blended.
5Roll out on lightly floured surface until about 1/4 inch thick.
6Cut 12, 4 inch circles with cup or bowl.(You will need to roll out twice).
7Note: you can use the rest of the crust for anything you may want to do on top of the pies.
8Press each circle in muffin tins until all the way up each side, to form little bowls.
9Mix by hand all filling ingredients and spoon into muffin bowls.
10Cut up butter into 12 little pieces and place one piece on each pie.
11You can decorate them anyway you like with extra crust, or just leave plain.
12Bake at 425 degrees for 16-18 minutes. (Until crust is light brown and apples are bubbling).
13When cool, just loosen with a spoon and they'll come right out!
