  • 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


  1. Peel, core and chop 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. 

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Push the pie crust circles into the muffin cups and fill each one with the apple mixture.

  6. 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.

  7. Sprinkle the pie tops with the sugar/cinnamon topping mixture.

  8. Bake the apple pies at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
