Mini Apple Pies are filled with delicious fall flavors for the perfect holiday dessert!
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, who wants to spend the entire holiday party 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 celebrate Thanksgiving every other year with Bryan’s extended family, so I made these mini apple pies as well as some mini cherry pies. Cherry is definitely Bryan’s favorite pie filling while mine is apple – or maybe Lemon Meringue. They were a big hit!
What I really love about making individual apple pies instead of one large one is that they make really good leftovers. I put mine in tupperware in the fridge, and they usually stay good for a week. We just pop ours into the microwave for about 10 to 15 seconds and serve alongside ice cream, and we have warm, apple pie a la mode in no time!

Time to Bake Adorable Mini Desserts!
Mini apple pies are ideal for your holiday parties! Bake these individual apples pies in a muffin tin for an adorable holiday dessert. Plus, you can make them a day ahead for easy serving!!
- 3-4 medium apples chopped (I used gala or honeycrisp)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 tablespoons of flour
- 2 tablespoons of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon Cloves
- 2 pie crusts
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
Peel, core and chop apples.
In a large bowl mix together the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. You want all the apple slices to be evenly coated.
- Unroll the pie crusts on a floured surface and cut out circles at least 3 inches in diameter. I use a drinking glass as a template and a pairing knife to cut. Make sure to save the scraps for topping.
Cut off little square 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.
Cut the left over pie crust scraps into strips and use them to make an easy "lattice" on top of the pies with 3-4 small strips.
Sprinkle the pie tops with the sugar/cinnamon topping mixture.
Bake the apple pies at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
