Miniature Pies

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.





  1. 1
    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Get muffin pan out. No need to grease it.
  2. 2
    In food processor blend flour, salt and butter until it looks like little peas.
  3. 3
    Add in water and blend just until it looks like it's sticking.
  4. 4
    Take out and combine it by hand until well blended.
  5. 5
    Roll out on lightly floured surface until about 1/4 inch thick.
  6. 6
    Cut 12, 4 inch circles with cup or bowl.(You will need to roll out twice).
  7. 7
    Note: you can use the rest of the crust for anything you may want to do on top of the pies.
  8. 8
    Press each circle in muffin tins until all the way up each side, to form little bowls.
  9. 9
    Mix by hand all filling ingredients and spoon into muffin bowls.
  10. 10
    Cut up butter into 12 little pieces and place one piece on each pie.
  11. 11
    You can decorate them anyway you like with extra crust, or just leave plain.
  12. 12
    Bake at 425 degrees for 16-18 minutes. (Until crust is light brown and apples are bubbling).
  13. 13
    When cool, just loosen with a spoon and they'll come right out!
