Mini Apple Pies Recipe: This Sweet Hand-Held Apple Pie Recipe Is So Easy to Make

After making this easy apple pie recipe for my boyfriend's birthday, I decided to make it again for his office – in mini size! This easy mini apple pie recipe screams fall and goes a lot further when feeding a crowd than one pie (think Thanksgiving).

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 1 box refrigerated pie crusts, at room temperature
  • 5 - 6 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and lemon juice. Toss to combine. 
  2. Lay the pie crusts onto a work surface. Cut some of the dough out using a 4-inch biscuit cutter. Place the pie crust rounds into muffin tins
  3. Use a 3-inch biscuit cutter to cut rounds of the remaining dough for the top. You can also cut out strips and do a lattice top. I did both. 
  4. Spoon some of the filling over the crust in the muffin tins. Top with a round of dough or make a lattice top. 
  5. Bake in a preheated 425-degree F oven for about 23 to 25 minutes or until crust is golden. 

Note: I didn't bake them in baking liners, but put the cooled pies into them to make serving easier.
