Mini Apple Pies

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.

Mini Pies

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 get put through a small hole that cores and slice the apples.  It literally takes me five minutes to peel, core and cut up five apples.

The absolute best part of these mini apple pies is the filling.

Serves: 24
These Mini Apple Pies are a sweet, individual sized piece of homemade goodness.
  • 5 – 6 apples
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted
  1. Mix all of the ingredients together.
  2. For the crust, I use premade crusts and a cookie cutter that will fit perfectly into a muffin tin.
  3. Drop a teaspoonful of the filling into the center of each pie crust.
  4. The filling fills 24 pie crusts.
  5. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes or until the crust has a golden brown appearance.
  6. I chose to top half of the apple pies with a topping made of: 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 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?

  • Carli

    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.

  • Gina

    Oh good heavens. I could eat like 10 of those. Probably not a good thing for me to visit while hungry.

  • Trish - Mom On Timeout

    So perfect! I love anything little 🙂 Pinning and featuring tonight! Thanks so much for sharing at Mom On Timeout!

  • Maria @ Inspiration Affirmation

    Wow, these look delicious — and I just LOVE the fact that they are ‘miniature,’ too. Nothing cuter than that, in my opinion! 🙂 Thanks for sharing with us!

  • Mel

    Hey Jenny, they look great. Thanks for sharing, I think I could eat about 5 before I felt guilty – love minis

  • kathy

    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.

  • Jennifer

    A teaspoon? That doesn’t seem like enough. Is it because it will bubble over? Looks delish!

  • Ken

    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.
