Mini Apple Pies

So as I no longer sleep past 7 am because my body hates me, I decided to make some mini pies!

This is a recipe I created and quite enjoy as is. Feel free to add more cinnamon or nutmeg to your liking. I keep the cinnamon content low as my Dad can’t have much cinnamon. I however love cinnamon but find the amount in the recipe while mild is still enough. Enjoy!



12 Tart shells

3 cups peeled and chopped apples
1/8 brown sugar
1/8 cup white sugar
1/8 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Lemon zest
1 teaspoon vanilla

Crumble Topping

1/2 cup oats
1/2 brown sugar
1/4 flour
1/4 butter
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg

Glaze (optional)
1/2 icing sugar
1-2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Place frozen tart shells on a cookie sheet and set aside to defrost.

Peel and chop apples into small cubes mix medium bowl with remaining filling ingredients and set aside.

Note: I use vanilla sugar instead of plain white sugar and fresh ground cinnamon and nutmeg. These are options but not necessary .



Mix all ingredients for crumble topping together until mixture resembles course breadcrumbs.

I use my hands for this as I find working the butter with my fingers yields the best results.

Divide apple mixture equally among the 12 tart shells. Do not over fill the tarts.

Divide crumb mixture equally among
the tarts to top them.

Place in preheated 375 degree oven on the middle rack and bake for 25 minutes.

At 25 minute mark place on lowest rack and bake for another 5 minutes

Pies are done when topping and tart shells are nicely browned and apples are soft!
