Mini Apple Pies

In Desserts on December 8, 2011 at 11:19 pm

Just in time for the holidays…
Mix 8 diced apples with:
12 tablespoons of flour
1 1/2c of sugar
4 heaping teaspoons of cinnamon
1/4-1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg (depending on how much you like nutmeg…you could also leave it out)
For the actual pies, you will need
4 tablespoons of chilled butter cut into 24 equal portions.
two boxes of pilsbury pie crusts (four chilled NOT frozen crusts) Maybe one more if you want to weave the top
mason jar lid for cutting the perfect size pie crusts
1 egg
few dashes of unrefined sugar

Sooo I made these for thanksgiving – and it turns out no one ate the pecan or pumpkin pie because these were so tasty – super easy with excellent effects…

Mix everything together, using the mason jar lids to cut out circles.

Stretch the dough a little to fit them in the muffin tins and place apple mixture inside.

Put one of the tiny pieces of butter on top and then weave leftover pieces of dough to form a fabulous crust on top. Complete by smushing the top and bottom layer together with a fork for cutesey effect!

Before baking, spread one egg yolk on top of the pies and sprinkle unrefined sugar on top – this will make it golden and beautiful (everyone will awwww, trust me)
