mini apple pies

i was craving an apple pie one day.
i just wanted one bit so i decided to try and bake style.
i couldnt decide on what to do for the top...
so i tried out a couple different designs:

  • ready made pie dough found in refrigerated isle
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon and 1-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tsp cinnamon powder 
  • 3 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and cut into small bite sizes

preheat oven to 425 F
cut apples, mix with cinnamon and set a side.
in a small pot, mix butter and flour together.
add water, both sugars and salt..bring to boil
add apples into pot, bring heat to medlow and cover lid.

roll out pie dough
using a circle cookie cutter, cut out 24 circles
place into mini cupcake pan 
(i like to line the pan with mini cupcake cups for easy removal later)
add apple mixture into each cup
place top layer of dough.
glaze with sauce left over in the pot

bake for 20-25 mins
(this part i will change later....i started baking it off at the wrong temp so it took me a little longer)

i'll leave you with one close up
enjoy ^^

Great job with the cupcakes! I've always wanted to make mini pies/tarts/cakes but I'm just too lazy. Glad to see someone isn't! ;)
