Mini Apple Pies

Apple pie is great any time of the year, but a slice is always nice in the summertime. A few years ago I took on a summer cooking challenge, where I tackled a new recipe every week. Want to make your own mini apple pies? Here’s the run down:

 

What you’ll need:

  • Pie crust – I opted for a pre-made crust, but there are tons of recipes out there to make your own.
  • 7 Apples, diced

For the sauce, heat together

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • Cinnamon – just a few dashes

 

What to do:

Step 1: Use a cup to measure crust, using a smaller cup for the tops. You may need to re-roll left-over pie crust to make more. 

Step 2: Grease and flour a cupcake pan.

Step 3: Line the bottom of a cupcake tray with the pie crust.

Step 3: Add sauce and apples to pie shells, cover with smaller crust top, and pinch slightly to secure.

Step 4: Bake around 15-20 minuets or until crust becomes golden brown. These mini pies won’t take as long to cook as a full pie.

Let cool, top with ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy!

 

What have you been making in the kitchen? I’d love to know!

 

Until next time…
