Last week I promised the recipe to my Mini Apple Pies that I shared from my Fall Tasting Party. Well, here they are! I cannot take the credit for the filling. The filling is all my mama.
Before I get to the recipe, I have to share my absolute favorite contraption ever! I'm sure there's a fancy name for my contraption, but I just love that word. The apple gets put onto a bar that you crank to a peeler on the far end, which then gets put through a small hole that cores and slice the apples. It literally takes me five minutes to peel, core and cut up to five apples.
The absolute best part of these mini apple pies is the filling.
Mini Apple Pies
- 5 - 6 apples
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter melted
- Mix all of the ingredients together.
- For the crust, I use pre-made crusts and a cookie cutter that will fit perfectly into a muffin tin.
- Drop a teaspoonful of the filling into the center of each pie crust.
- The filling fills 24 pie crusts.
- Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes or until the crust has a golden brown appearance.
- I chose to top half of the apple pies with a topping made of ¼ cup brown sugar, ¼ cup flour, 2 tablespoons of melted butter.
The topping gave the pie a candy-coated taste. I actually preferred the pies topped with vanilla ice cream, rather than the sugar topping. Do you prefer a particular topping?
How much crust is needed? One 9"? Two? How big is the cookie cutter? Going by the width of the top of one muffin doesn't seem like it would have enough dough for the depth of the muffin tin.
A teaspoon? That doesn't seem like enough. Is it because it will bubble over? Looks delish!
These turned out delicious!! I used a store bought premade crust. I think next time I will take the time to make my own homemade crust.
Hey Jenny, they look great. Thanks for sharing, I think I could eat about 5 before I felt guilty - love minis

This looks delicious! I make something like it but without the crust. I bet this would be wonderful for breakfast!

those look SO delicious! and easy to make too. I am going to pick apples later this month and want to make these!
These are so great! I have a list of "little" desserts and these are going on it.
Wouldn't that be called an apple corer. Hmmm...I don't know but I love that it peels.
