There is nothing more American than simple Apple pie. But I have to say I don’t always love simple. So here is a great twist on the basic apple pie. Make these bite-sized mini apple pies!!
How to Make Mini Apple Pies
If you love these mini apple pies be sure to take a look at:
Mini Apple Pies
- 4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 stick butter cubed
- 4-8 tablespoons ice-cold water
- Apple Filling:
- 5 cups apples peeled and small diced
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Stir together the flour and salt, then cut the butter into this dry mixture.
Add in the cold water, and mix just to combine all the ingredients. Be careful not to over-handle the dough. After the dough comes together, divide it into two spheres, wrap each sphered individually and loosely in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
While the dough is chilling, combine all the apple filling ingredients and set aside.
After the 20 minutes have passed, remove one of the spheres of dough from the refrigerator and roll out to 1/4 inch thickness. Using a round cutter or drinking glass, cut circles in the dough large enough to fit the base and walls of each well in a muffin tin. Line the muffin tin wells with dough, cutting away the excess.
Fill each well with the apple filling (you may need to strain the apples to remove excess moisture).
Working with the other dough sphere, again roll it to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut circles in the dough again, but this time set the spheres on top of the filled apple pies, and pinch the edges to create a decorative border around each.
Bake at 350°F for 35-45 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
