Mini Apple Pie Tips
What kind of apples should you use to make Mini Apple Pies?
We’d recommend a tart apple, such as Granny Smith, for these mini apple pies, but you could also go for something a little sweeter like Braeburn as well. Here are more of the best apples for apple pie
How can you make Mini Apple Pies your own?
Because the pie dough in this mini apple pie recipe isn't sweetened, savory fillings work with it, too—as long as you finish the pies with a grind of pepper instead of sugar. No matter what kind of filling you choose, use about a tablespoon of filling per pie. You also could make these mini apple pies in a muffin tin. Cut circles of dough big enough to line the bottom and sides of each muffin cup, add the filling, then use whatever leftover dough you have to create a lattice
or regular crust on top.
Can you make Mini Apple Pies ahead of time?
If you want to save some time later, make the pie dough ahead of time. Prepare and roll out the pastry into rounds, then stack them between floured sheets of waxed paper in the fridge until you’re ready to prep the mini pies the next day. When making the dough, don’t worry if it looks a little dry and crumbly before refrigerating it—the time in the fridge will help it come together like it should!
