First Up: Mini Muffin Tin Apple Pies
Get ready for some easy and adorable pies, my friends. You’re gonna need:
- 4 medium-sized apples, peeled and chopped
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1 tablespoon of flour
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
- A pinch of salt
- 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter, melted
- 1 package of pre-made pie crust
Preheat your oven to 375°F and grease your mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Time to make the filling! Combine your chopped apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, lemon juice, and melted butter in a medium-sized bowl. Stir everything together until your apples are nicely coated.
Unroll your pre-made pie crust and, using a cookie cutter or cup, cut out circles big enough to fit into the mini muffin tin cups. You should be able to get around 24-28 circles. Press each circle into the muffin tin cup, and then spoon your apple filling into each one.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until your crust is golden brown and your apple filling is bubbling. Allow the pies to cool in the muffin tin for 10-15 minutes before removing them. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and enjoy!

In a saucepan, melt your butter over medium heat. Add your chopped apples and cook for 5 minutes, or until they start to soften. In a separate bowl, whisk together your flour and water, and then add it to your saucepan. Stir everything together until your mixture thickens.
Add in your brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg to your apple mixture, and cook for an additional minute or two. Spoon your apple mixture into each muffin cup. In a small bowl, whisk your egg white until frothy, and then brush it onto the edges of your pie crusts. Sprinkle your coarse sugar onto the egg white edges.
Bake your mini apple pies for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Allow them to cool in the muffin tin for a few minutes before removing them. Serve with vanilla ice cream or caramel sauce, and enjoy every single bite!
