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

"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..."
Mini Apple Pies (So Easy, Not Much Hassle!) created by Ashley Cuoco
Ready In:
12 pies




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

    The filling was easy to make, but the crust did not roll out for 12 cups. I did add some water to the dough, and chill before rolling. But it was just a very stiff recipe. Ended up with a full pie instead. Thanks for the recipe.

    Made these with my 3.5 year old. The recipe was so easy and delicious. Big hit!

    Well they taste really good, so I guess the recipe works. DON’T PUT THE CRUST DIRECTLY INTO THE MUFFIN PAN. USE SPRAY OR SOMETHING. Seriously - what a disaster. I’m going to have to soak my pans to get all of the crust off now. Definitely will NOT be making these again!!

    I did not use the recipe for the pie crust, but I used the filling recipe, and it turned out great. To make this even easier, I used a store-bought pie crust. Also, 5 medium apples were a little too much for 12 muffin sized pies. I think I could have used just 4 apples. So easy!

    This is a great recipe - but instead of a using muffin pan for 12 mini pies I used a jumbo muffin pan and made 6 instead. Everything else remained the same. They were a big hit with my friends. Thanks for sharing.
