  • oven adjusted to the center rack position
  • 12-count muffin tin
  • Baking nonstick spray
  • pastry brush
  • Apple corer/peeler
  • large mixing bowl
  • cutting board & knife
  • pastry cutter


Pie filling

  • 5 large Granny Smith Apples peeled, cored, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Pie crust

  • 14.1 ounces refrigerated pie crust I used a box of refrigerated dough
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • Wash, dry, peel, core, and cubed your apples.
  •  Add apples to a bowl and coat with cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg, and flour. 
  • Remove apples from the bowl, and place apples into a large skillet with butter, and cook over medium heat until apples are tender; about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the over to 400°F degrees, and coat the muffin pan with nonstick spray or additional melted butter.
  • Roll out dough and cut out 4" circles which will be inserted into each muffin tin. This will be the crust layer. You will have to re-roll the dough to make all 10 pie crust circles, however you should have enough left over dough to make little 1/4" lattice strips. 
  • Once apples are tender, allow them to cool for 5 minutes before filling each pie crust cup.
  • Once each mini pie is filled, using a pastry dough cutter, form lattices in a crisscross patterns over each pie. 
  • In a small bowl whisk the medium egg and water to create a light and fluffy egg wash. Once pies are assembled, brush them with the egg wash.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until pies are golden brown and crust feels firm.
  •  Allow Mini Apple Pies to fully cool before removing. Enjoy!
