Mini Apple Pies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by ellie_

Made these with some Pillsbury piecrusts we had in the freezer for way past their time and these are great --- recipe says it makes 20 - we made 12, but also used a coffee mug for the biscuit cutter - so my coffee mug may have been bigger than the 3 inches recipe specifies. Also these freeze great! Recipe source: local newspaper

I just made these, and they are delicious! I changed the recipe to make 10 total. I used 1 roll out pie crust and actually only ended up with 5 and a little bit of apple left over but not really enough for another pie. I used a large drinking glass to cut the crusts. I do think that the roll out crust is a little thick for this. The only thing I would change is to roll the crust a little thinner. All in all - delicious. I served them (to myself) hot out of the oven with vanilla ice cream. Yum! Thanks for the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 12 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 18 teaspoon salt
  • 2 apples, peeled and diced (I used granny smith apples)
  • 2 refrigerated 9-inch pie shells (I used pillsbury roll-out pie crusts)
  • 1 egg, beaten


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl combine first 5 ingredients (sugar - salt) and then add the apples and toss.
  4. Unroll the pie crusts on a floured board and cut 3-inch rounds (note in description), re-roll scraps and cut out more rounds (need an even number of rounds).
  5. brush each round with beaten egg and then place a large spoonful of apple mixture in center of half of the rounds, top each with a plain round which you have cut a vent in, sealing edges with a fork or your fingers (we used fingers), sprinkle with sugar.
  6. Bake pies on baking sheets for 20 minutes or until golden.
