I love these mini pies because I can serve several different types together and everyone can select their favorite. This mini apple pie uses Granny Smith apples. I bought the mini pie dishes online, and they are really fun!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Cut 4 6-inch rounds out of the pie crusts, and fit them into 4 5-inch mini pie dishes. Cut remaining pie crust into 1/8-inch strips, and set dough aside.

  • In a bowl, mix the diced apple, tapioca, sugar, lemon juice, nutmeg, and cinnamon until thoroughly combined; allow the mixture to stand for 5 minutes to soften the tapioca. Stir the mixture again, and spoon into the pie shells. Use the strips of dough to weave a small lattice crust on top of each pie, and pinch the strips onto the bottom crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the pies are browned and the filling is thickened and bubbling, about 30 minutes. Cool before serving.

These were so tasty! I made 2 changes to the recipe though. I cut out the tapioca and added a crumb topping like on dutch apple pie. My husband loved them!!! No need for the tapioca in my opinion. Read More

I used the pie dough recipe from allrecipes.com - it is excellent - I bought the 6 inch ceramic pie plates from Hamilton Beach - then got this recipe - did not have tapioca so added 2 T. flour to thicken - thought it was very good -- would definitely make them again. Great if you are only 1 or 2 for dinner and want apple pie - not to much just enough with a little bit of vanilla ice cream --- YUM MO Read More

I made these for Thanksgiving using muffin pans instead of mini pie pans. Thankfully I had Teflon tins because I don't know how I would have removed them in tact otherwise. The pies were a big hit with my family and I will definitely be making these again. I shortened the baking time to 25 minutes and they were perfect. Had to let them cool a while before removing with the help of a thin spatula. Read More

Perfect. I didn't use the tapioca and added about 2 teaspoons of flour. I also used half white and half brown sugar and microwaved the apples in lemon juice for 45 seconds. Twas yummy!! PS I DID use a muffin pan instead and will upload a photo asap. Some came right out but the ones that I over filled (made 7 could have made 8 in a regular sized muffin tin) not so much. Yummmmmy thank you for sharing!! Read More

These were pretty good! I didn't use the tapioca though. I added flour (about 2 teaspoons). I also added brown sugar in the filling and also mixed some with butter and and put it on the top of the pies for the last 5-7 min of baking pretty good! Read More
