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.
