  3. Add in water and blend just until it looks like it’s sticking.
  4. Take out and combine it by hand until well blended.
  5. Roll out on lightly floured surface until about 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Or use frozen dough, and follow directions to thaw, etc.
  7. Cut 12, 4 inch circles with cup or bowl.(You will need to roll out twice).
  8. Note: you can use the rest of the crust for anything you may want to do on top of the pies.
  9. Press each circle in muffin tins until all the way up each side, to form little bowls.
  10. Mix by hand all filling ingredients and spoon into muffin bowls.
  11. Cut up butter into 12 little pieces and place one piece on each pie.
  12. You can decorate them anyway you like with extra crust, or just leave plain.
  13. Bake at 425 degrees for 16-18 minutes. (Until crust is light brown and apples are bubbling).
  14. When cool, just loosen with a spoon and they’ll come right out!


Alternate Ideas

Use Pillsbury (or other) frozen pie crusts.  Muffin pan holds 24, so might want to get a total of 4 pie crusts.  Suggested apples to use are Granny Smith (most often chosen), Honeycrisp (second choice), Crispin, and Pink Lady.  One site suggested a mix of Granny Smith and Honeycrisp.
