Personally, I want a big, beautiful, decadent dessert to be the grand finale and star of the show for holidays or entertainment. Sadly, I have learned over the years that not everyone has that sentiment. I just don’t understand, but it is what it is.

That’s why I came up with this small version of Apple Pie. Plus, they’re great for big parties when you want finger foods. I also like to serve ham and cheese pinwheels, sausage stars, and French Quarter pecan cheese spread at parties.

What’s the best apple for 15-Minute Mini Apple Pies?

These are the recommended best apples for pies. Honestly, I like to mix a tart apple like Granny Smith with a sweeter apple, Honeycrisp, for pies. It gives a wonderful flavor!

For the crust

  • You can make a homemade pie crust. I most often use my Never Fail Pie Crust because, well, it always turns out perfect! As well, the Coconut Oil Pie Crust is just as good and healthier!
  • Furthermore, when I’m in a time crunch, I just buy a pie crust. That’s perfectly acceptable, too! Make note that you’ll need to get the refrigerated pie crusts, not frozen.
  • But, guess what? Sugar cookie dough is good as a crust for apple pie too!
  • Next, puff pastry is another option for a pie crust for this recipe.
  • Finally, phyllo tart shells are good. However, I can typically only get those in my local store during the holidays.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 40 servings


  • 6 apples peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 2 pie crusts premade, refrigerated
  • 1 and 1/2 cup brown sugar you can use light or dark brown sugar
  • 12 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven 375°F. Spray a mini-muffin tin with non-stick spray or coat with Wilton Cake Release.
  • Dice apple small and place in a small bowl. To the bowl, add sugar, flour, butter, and cinnamon. Stir well to coat the apples.
  • Unroll your pie crusts. I used a 2-inch round cookie cutter to cut 40 circles of pie crust. Gently place them in the muffin tin and press to fit. It's much easier to get the pie crust into the little muffin tin if you use a tart tamper.
  • Spoon the apple mixture into the pie shells, filling to the top.
  • Bake at 375°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until the crust starts to brown.
  • Allow the mini pies to cool a few minutes before carefully removing them to cool on a wire rack. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

    These sound good. I like the idea of a sugar cookie crust too! I think one could eat 6 of these to equal a slice of pie! So I bet those who don’t think they want a dessert after a holiday meal would love these. I don’t understand them either. Thanks, Paula.

  3. How delicious and fast! I just moved into a new home so I’m excited to try new recipes in my new kitchen (there was a lot of “new” in there). I’m wondering though how easy it is to work with the self rising flour, I’ve always been a bit worried to work with it. Thanks for sharing- following you on google+ and facebook!

    1. Thanks so much, returning the follow! I grew up always using self-rising flour. I really just started using all purpose flour recently so I find self-rising extremely easy to work with. No need to measure salt and soda. Have fun in your new kitchen!

  4. These apple bites look so yummy! I’ll definitely have to try them. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. It was featured at this week’s Pin Junkie party. Hope you’ll stop by to grab a featured button and share another great recipe at thepinjunkie.com/2014/01/friday-link-party-49.html

  6. These apple bites look adorable! Hehe, loved your story! I’m always scared of what I will find at the bottom of my purse too. I know I always seem to find really old and stale cheerio bits and nuts since I bring snacks for my lil guy to munch on and a few fall to the bottom and get lost 🙂

  7. haha.. love that you found flour tortillas in your purse… and hearing your random carpool line stories. I can’t wait to have some of my own when my little guy starts school. I’ve had some pretty random stuff in my purse, but not sure if I can bet tortilla. 🙂 These apple bites sound delicious and like the perfect mini bite!

  8. I don’t usually have too many strange things in my purse, but I’ll usually find the apple from Panera in there a few days after I’ve gotten it.

  9. Paula, I’m laughing over the what’s in your purse – I’ve had a lot of weird things in mine, too! Although right now, there is so much change in there that handbag, my seatbelt light comes on every time I put it on the passenger seat, lol. These apple pie bites sound wonderful and I love Gala apples, too! Thanks for sharing – pinning and buffering! Hope you have a wonderful first Thursday of 2014!

    1. I went to pay for something and pulled out those tortillas! That’s what prompted me to clean it out! lol! I’m moving pretty slow on this first Thursday, I’ve GOT to get back on a good routine, it’s so hard with everybody home.
