Mini Apple Pies with a Personal Pie Maker

Used Nicole's personal pie maker from Sears

Coulda added cinnamon too!


N for Nicole...and some messy pies lol

Turned the extra dough into a little dumpling/empanada/hand pie

Mini Apple Pies

Recipe from AllRecipes (I just copied and pasted this time directly from the site), but we had a lot of leftover filling since we weren't making a full pie. We're planning to use the leftover insides in our oatmeal and other things.
  • 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 8 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar and brown sugar, and bring to a boil. Reduce temperature and let simmer.
  2. Place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
  3. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes, until apples are soft.

    To make the little pies, basically follow the directions on the pie maker. I think it was easy and pretty fun. Thanks, Nicole, for the idea and letting us (Grace and Corrie) share this pie-making fun with you!
