Nice and quick work, these muffin sized apple pies! Especially if you use store bought pie crust ( 10 x 16 inches ) and cut six rounded shapes to fit into muffin pan holes ( 4 inches in diameter ) and six covers (2.6 inches in diameter ); one of the covers made of patches, though.

No matter how hard I tried to combine to cut them all to use one pie crust only, it did not work. Honestly, I did not want to waste another one pie crust just for one cover, so I patched it up.

I love Granny Smith apples, not too juicy, not too sweet: perfect pie filling if you tend not to overpower your dessert filling with sugar:

As about chopped apples filling, there is one other possibility to give these pies a bit of caramel flavours and fill the baskets with Caramel Apple Jam .

 

 

If you stick to the recipe below, you get 13 tablespoons of apple filling and you need only 8 for these mini pies. I used the rest for porridge topping.

Can you freeze mini apple pies?
