recipe: mini apple pies

mini apple pies

2 premade pie crusts, unrolled
4 apples (2 sour granny smith, 2 sweet Spartan)
2 T sugar
2 t flour
2 t cinnamon
2 1/2 T salted butter

preheat oven to 350 degrees, put cupcake liners in 10 holes of regular size muffin pan

let pie crusts come to room temp and unroll.  cut 5 large circles out of each crust (I used 4" circle cutter)
carefully tuck one circle into each cupcake liner
peel and cut apples into small pieces, fill each mini crust with a mix of the two apples
mix sugar, flour, and cinnamon together in bowl.  put 1 teaspoon of mix over apples in each mini pie.
cut tablespoons of butter into quarters and put one cube in each mini pie
cut remaining crust into strips for a simple lattice or use a cookie cutter to put a single shape as the top crust

bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees or until golden brown

makes 10 mini pies
