Mini Apple Pies

"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"

Ready In:
20 mini pies


  • 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


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine first 5 ingredients (sugar - salt) and then add the apples and toss.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Bake pies on baking sheets for 20 minutes or until golden.

    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.

    I made these for an appy grandson loved them with whipped cream on top...I served them at room temperature...I did cut the recipe in half and got 7 cute pies...I felt that the filling was enough to fill 14 keep that in mind when making this...this was very easy to prepare and I will be making them again and freezing my next batch to see how that works...thanks for posting the recipe...=)

    I made them but I didn't use cupcake holders. I just rolled the dough handmade a few little squares and larger ones. Then I just made an open pie. They were good but I think I would have liked the phylo dough effect better just cause I like it. But your dough was great. Sandy


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
