Ingredients:



6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and coarsely chopped (into 1/2-inch pcs.)
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Mini Apple Pies

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°F. In large mixing bowl, combine apples and lemon juice; add sugar, flour and cinnamon. Mix and set aside. Roll out pie dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. With paring knife, flip pie tin upside down on the dough; cut a circle 3 inches larger than rim of pan. Fit dough into four 5-inch round pie tins, crimping edges; prick bottoms with fork several times.

Fill each pie tin with apple filling and 1 piece of butter. Cover, using cookie cutouts or strips of flaky pie pastry dough. Be creative: use different cookie cutter shapes to give a unique look to your pie. Top with a sprinkle of Cinnamon Sugar garnish (recipe follows).

Place on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Bake 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350°F and continue to cook approximately 20-25 minutes, checking every 5 minutes until apples appear tender and crust is golden brown.

In small bowl, combine both ingredients. Sprinkle atop pie, as topping.

Quick Tips

-Covering the pie completely with a top crust will increase your baking time.
-Be sure to vent top crust with slits.
-Using cookie cutouts will decrease baking time.
-For a shiny crust, create an egg wash using 1 egg mixed with 1 tsp. water. Brush top of each pie just before bakin
