Mini Apple Pie Recipe
Serves: 7-8
  • 1 cup flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cold and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons (or a little more) ice water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Ingredients for the filling:
  • 4-6 apples
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbs flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Cut your butter into small cubes. Using a mixing bowl and a fork, mix butter into the flour.
  2. Add salt and sugar. Then add your ice water and mix well until a dough forms. Start with the 2 tablespoons of ice water, and if it isn’t coming together like a dough, start adding a little bit more at a time. Wrap dough in saran wrap and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Peel and chop your apples
  4. Mix brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, flour, salt and vanilla extract together in the mixing bowl
  5. Add those apples to the above mixture
  6. Get the dough out from the fridge.
  7. Place ¾ of the dough between two lightly floured pieces of wax or parchment paper and roll out until it is pretty thin
  8. Use a small bowl (I used a custard bowl or ramekin) to cut out little circles of dough that are slightly larger than the size of the circles in the cupcake tin
  9. Place circles into an un-greased cupcake tin, using a fork to poke little holes in the bottom
  10. Fill them up with apple mixture!
  11. Roll out the remaining ¼ of dough and cut small strips to use as the lattice top.
  12. Bake the pies for 35-40 minutes at 375 degrees.

    I had a lot of apples from my local orchard that were about to go bad and I wanted something different than the average pie. I just made these and they are perfect! I especially liked this recipe because my Mom has a severe peanut allergy, but without nutmeg I can bring her over a batch. These were so delicious I didn’t miss the nutmeg or alternative ‘pumpkin pie spice’ most recipes call for.

  3. Laurie says:

    These were delicious, but how many should it make? I only had enough dough for 7…did I not roll it thin enough?

  4. Cassandra says:

  7. Teala says:

    If I opted to use canned pie filling would I still add the sugars and other ingredients listed under Filling? Thank you!

    Would store-bought/pre-made pie crusts work?

    How do I keep my dough from shrinking?

    • Rita, rest the pie dough for about 5 minutes after you roll it out onto your work surface and before you press it into your pie plate. Once it is in the pie plate, put it back in the fridge (or leave it on the counter if your kitchen is very cool) to rest for about 15 minutes before baking. This resting gives the gluten time to relax and will help keep your crust from shrinking during baking.
