Mini Apple Pies (So Easy, Not Much Hassle!)

Total Time

These little tasty treats are always a hit. They taste just like an apple pie, except they are mini sized and easy to eat. They are great to take to a party because there is not cutting and serving needed. People always rave about these. I think their pretty tasty too! My hubby loves to eat them warm with vanilla ice cream on the side. Maybe a little caramel sauce drizzled over top! Mmmmm...

Ingredients Nutrition


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

I found your recipe while searching for mini-pies in a muffin tin, and we absolutely loved them! We only made 6 the first time, because we only had 3 apples, and yes, the three of us were fighting over them, and watching each other with hawk-eyes, making sure no one had more than their 2 :) Now, we're going to make mini pecan pies and more apple ones for Thanksgiving. Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe!

I really want to give these a try; part of the recipe calls for butter on top of the pie - do I put it on top of the top crust?

I love these! I usually do not make my own pie crust because I have trouble rolling it out -- but this recipe is wonderful! I did have to use more water than it called for (I live in a VERY dry climate) - but I added water 'till it came together in the food processor. The crust rolled out very easily. The finished pies were very tasty - and the crust was flaky and butter-y tasting. I plan on freezing some of these to save for unexpected guests. (Next I will try the crust recipe for a "real" pie!)
