I like to use red apples such as Pink Lady or Honeycrisp for this recipe as they tend to be sweeter in my opinion, but any apple will work.
Coconut sugar is my favorite sweetener to use in my recipes, but brown sugar or cane sugar works great too.
Add in lots of cinnamon to really bring out that fall flavor.
A touch of vanilla extract adds a ton of flavor.
Sprinkle turbinado sugar on top before baking to really make these little pies stand out.
How To Make
ONE: Peel, and dice apples into small bite sized pieces. Add them to a bowl with the coconut sugar and cinnamon. Mix well and set aside.
TWO: Next, roll out pie dough on a floured surface and use a circle cookie cutter, or the top of a glass to cut out circles. Add circles to muffin tins and mend to the edges.
THREE: Add about a tablespoon of the apple mixture to each pie crust and then with the remainder pie crust add on the topping overlapping every other one.
FOUR: Lightly coat with non-stick spray and sprinkle with turbinado sugar before baking. Let cool, remove and enjoy!
Tips And Tricks
Use pre-made store bought pie dough for a quick and easy recipe.
If you have a homemade pie crust, feel free to use that!
Make the apples first so they have time to marinate before adding into the pie cavities.
The top crust isn’t mandatory, but i strongly encourage it because they turn out much cuter.
