Recipe: Mini Apple Butter Pies

Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful readers!

It cannot be surprising to any of you that I decided to try making one of the pies I made for Thanksgiving in mini form...

And they are adorable.

The filling is the same as the full sized Apple Butter Pie.  The full recipe made a LOT of mini pies and needed 4 pie crusts total.  Feel free to halve the recipe.

To make the mini pies, cut the pie crust out with a 2" biscuit cutter (or other round cookie cutter). 

Spray your mini muffin pans, and carefully press the crust down into each cup.

Fill with a generous scoop of pie filling.  Bake at 400 for 5 minutes, and then lower heat to 350 and bake for an additional 12-17 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Aren't they adorable?

I cut out mini apples of pie crust using the inside of a linzer cookie cutter and popped them on top of each mini pie after the first 5 minutes of baking.

Pin It!
