These individual Mini Apple Pies are easy to make using homemade apple pie pilling and store bought pie crust. Fill a cupcake tin and they are the perfect treat for fall, lunchboxes, dessert platters and more! The extra bites of crust will be loved by the crust lover!
I have to admit, my favorite part of a pie is usually the CRUST! The rich, buttery, flaky crust that literally melts in your mouth, yeah, that’s what I’m talking about! Yum!! That’s why I love these Apple Turnovers so much!
Typically I make my own crust for all of my pies using my favorite pie crust recipe, however, since the house fire, I no longer have any of my kitchen appliances, etc. Although you can actually make my favorite crust using a fork, I always make it with a handheld dough/pastry cutter, like this one, without it, I just wasn’t up for making the pastry crust. I cheated and bought a pre-made pie crust.
The package of two pre-made, roll-out pie crusts yielded 7 mini pies, the size of a cupcake pan.

Lets Make Them Together!
Start by rolling our your pre-made pie crust on a cutting board (I got a little anxious and rolled this out before it was fully thawed, hence the rip in the crust). Using a circle cookie cutter, I cut out 7 circles in each pie crust.
Place the circle pie crusts into a cupcake tin. In a bowl, toss together diced apples, cinnamon and sugar.
Fill the pie crusts with apples and top with second set of circle pie crusts
With the excess pie crust dough, cut & press out fun shapes – I used leaves and acorns!
Once the pies are assembled, place in the oven and bake until golden brown!
Let cool, remove from pan and enjoy!
