Mini Apple Pies (makes 12)

Happy {Almost} Valentine’s Day!

I was in a loving mood and made my roommates mini apple pies. There’s a secret ingredient in these that makes them so mouthwateringly delicious… it starts with L and rhymes with dove. Anyway, I thought these might be a cute treat for whomever you show some love to this V-day! I love all of my followers ❤

For the dough you will need:mini apple pie

For my dough I used Immaculate Baking Company pre-made crusts. If you want to make your own you’ll need:

2 cup of all-purpose flour

1/2 cup water

1 cup of butter

1 tsp of salt

For the filling you will need: 

5 apples, peeled

3/4 cups of sugar

6 tbsp. flour

2 tsp. cinnamon

You will also need:

1 12-cup muffin tin

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425. You do not have to grease the muffin tin.

2. Roll out dough on a floured surface and use a 4-inch round bowl to cut out 12 mini pie crusts. Line each muffin cup with one crust, press the crusts around the top of each cup in a crinkle-cut pattern.

3. Peel and dice the apples into bite size pieces, spritz with lemon juice if you’re worried they might go brown too quickly. Then, in a large bowl, mix the apples, flour, sugar, and cinnamon.

4. Scoop just enough filling into each cup until it reaches the surface. It’s about 1/4 cup of filling.

5. For the top of my mini pies, I used a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make heart toppers for the pies. You could do something similar, or make a criss-cross pattern, or simply leave them exposed.

6. Put a small square of butter on the top of each pie. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until crusts are golden brown.

7. These are absolutely to die for right out of the oven. But, you can heat them back up again by sticking them in the microwave for 20 seconds. And don’t forget your milk!

Recipe found on Food.com… altered the time sequence and the crust pattern.
