I have this thing about individual food servings. I find them irresistible. They are easy to serve for parties which means I find myself enjoying my company more than serving them. Because let’s be honest – after spending hours preparing for a holiday party for family gathering, who wants to spend the entire night behind the kitchen counter? I want to be laughing with friends and enjoying the food I baked.

Mini-Pies are probably my favorite! As a non-cake fan, I would always prefer having pie to enjoy over most other desserts. Plus, it’s so easy to make a large batch of mini pies with multiple flavors just by making smaller filling batches.

We celebrated Thanksgiving last year up in Wisconsin with Bryan’s extended family, so I made these mini apple pies as well as some mini cherry pies. They were a big hit! They also seem to last longer as leftovers. I just put mine in the fridge and any leftovers are still good even a week later!

Individual Apple Pies!
 
Author:
Ingredients
  • apples of your choice. I use Gala or Honey Crisps
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 4 Tbsp of flour
  • 2 Tbsp of cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp Cloves
  • Topping: 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • Pie crust: Either 1 box of two premade dough (4 crusts) or make your own
Instructions
  1. Peel, core and chop up apples.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. You want all the apple slices to be evenly coated. I normally take a bite or two of the apples; I just can't resist, so there is no judgement here if you do the same.
  3. Unroll the pie crusts on a floured surface and cut out circles at least 3 inches in diameter. I normally use a glass as a template. Make sure to save the scraps for topping.
  4. Individual Apple Pies - perfect for Thanksgiving!
  5. Cut off little pieces of aluminum foil and put them into each cup of the muffin pan. Doing this step will make getting your pies out of the pan easier.
  6. Push the pie crust circles into the muffin cups and fill each one with the apple mixture.
  7. Individual Apple Pies - perfect for Thanksgiving!
  8. I cut the left over pie crust scraps into strips and use them to make a make shift "lattice" on top of the pies with 3-4 small strips.
  9. Then, I sprinkle the pie tops with the sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  10. Bake the apple pies at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. They should be a nice golden brown.

    These are so cute! I have always wanted to make individual pies like this. You make it look really easy. I would have never thought to add foil to each muffin tin to make it easy to get them out. Great idea!
