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..."

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!

    Cut 12, 4 inch circles with cup or bowl.(You will need to roll out twice). What is meant by roll out twice?
  2. Shatavia
    DO we use warm water, hot water, or ice water?
  3. rachaelblossom
    Am I supposed to use salted or unsalted butter?

    Does the dough need to be chilled before use? Also, should it be baked before (and after) pouring the filling in, or can it simply be baked all at once? Thanks!

    Can these be made ahead of time?

    loved how easy it is to make and my husband loved the taste of both the filling and the crust :) will definitely use this recipe again next time! i just used my hands and grated the cold butter instead of using a food processor :)

    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!

    Made these for my grandson's school lunches. Were a big hit with him and Mum.

    Followed the crust recipe to the T but doubled everything to make 24 pies. With rolling to 1/4” thickness I had only *just* enough dough for 24 bottoms, which was too bad, but they still worked out fine. For the filling I added nutmeg and allspice because I love a spicier apple pie. Will definitely make them again, but I’ll know to make extra crust to top the pies.

    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.

    I tried to make this Gluten free by using coconut flour (it was all I had on hand) and it was a HORRIBLE mistake! The dough wouldn't stick together no matter how much I worked it so I wasn't able to roll it out. Instead I decided to just mold it straight into the muffin pan. seemed to work fine until I took them out of the oven. The crust was still so soft and came apart when I tried to pull them out. I'm hoping it's just the coconut flour and that using a different GF flour would work because this recipe is so simple! I'm definitely trying again.

    Apple with a little cinnamon & wild blackberry filling dusted with a little soft brown sugar when cooling. Baked in muffin tin and transferred to muffin cases when cool for easy to handle single size portions.

    Use two refrigerated pie crust. Tasted great and so much easier

    425 degrees is Fahrenheit or celsius ?


This is a picture of my sweet hubby and me. We've been married for over two years and I love cook. My husband is a very fit guy who works really hard, but loves to eat. All of our friends are wondering how long his fitness will last eating all the sweets I cook! :) I love this website and use it quite a bit. I am a Christian, and I work at a home for troubled kids. I teach music. All of the recipes that I have posted are my absolute favorites. I will never post a recipe that I have not made myself. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
