Mini Apple Pies
October 26, 2020
These little mini pies make a lovely lazy morning breakfast. Full of spiced apples and the crust is remarkable silky, yet flaky. The almonds add a crunchy dimension to the soft apples.
- Prep: 30 mins
- Cook: 25 mins
- Yields: 11 or so mini pies
2 tsp Everything Nice (Pumpkin Spice - Spice of Life Blend)
1Have your peeled apples ready in a bowl and sprinkle with the lemon juice and toss.
2In a measuring cup mix the dry ingredients together and then toss together with the apples. Set aside.
1Soften butter slightly.
2Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and add butter. Mix by hand until it is like little pebbles. Slowly add water until you can form a ball, but not too sticky.
Preheat oven @ 375º
1Form dough into 2" size balls
2Roll out each ball to an approximate circle
3Lay dough into lightly oiled muffin cups.
Spoon in filling
1Sprinkle on Almonds, top with slivers of butter
2Bake at 375º for 25 Minutes
3Cool Slightly and ease them out of the muffin form with a large spoon or heat safe flat flexible spatula
I used a silicon muffin pan. It was a little tricky lining the pan with the dough and I'd recommend refrigerating the dough overnight, but not necessary if you're prepared to mend the crust a bit.
