Ingredients

  • One package of two rounds of pre-made pie crust thawed at room temperature
  • 3 green apples peeled, seeded, cut into very small pieces
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground all spice
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • Cinnamon Sugar mixture: 3 tablespoons granulated sugar mixed well with 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Grease the bottom and sides of four mini pie or tartlet pans.
  • In a large bowl, combine cut apple pieces, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice until spices are evenly dispersed among the apples. Set aside.
  • Unroll one of the pre-made pie crust dough rounds.
  • Using a large round pastry cutter or the edges of one of the mini pie pans, cut out large circles of dough.
  • Gently place each circle in the bottom of a mini pie pan and press up the sides.
  • Scoop generous helpings of the spiced apple filling into each tartlet pan and spread evenly.
  • Unroll the second pre-made pie crust dough. Using a pastry cutter or knife, cut strips that are slightly less than 1/2" wide and just slightly longer than the circumference of each apple pie round.
  • Lay strips over the pie filling in a lattice pattern. Brush the top of one mini pie with melted butter, then immediately sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over it; repeat on remaining mini pies.
  • Place prepared mini pies onto a shallow rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 25-35 minutes, until the tops of the lattice pie crusts are golden brown.
  • Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes out of the oven before digging in.
  • Makes 4 mini apple pies.

Notes

You can substitute palm coconut sugar for brown sugar and Stevia for the granulated sugar, if you wish.
