Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 13-15 minutes

Makes about 18 mini pies

Materials:

  • 2 pie crusts
  • 2 cups chopped apples (I used 3 Cortland apples)
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • Zest of 1/2 orange
  • 1/4 cup sugar (plus more for topping)
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbs. flour
  • Caramel candies cut into small pieces (as little or as much as you’d like, I used 6)
  • 1 egg w/ tsp. of water for egg wash

Process:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with some parchment paper.
  2. In a small mixing bowl combine the apples, lemon juice, orange zest, sugar, pumpkin spice, salt, and flour. Mix well and set aside.
  3. On a clean lightly floured surface place down one pie crust at a time. Using a rolling pin smooth the crust out and make it slightly thinner.
  4. Using a round glass or cookie cutter cut out circles and place them on your baking sheet. Remember to leave enough circles to top each mini pie.
  5. Place about a tbs. of the filling into the middle of each circle, followed by a few pieces of your cut up caramel.
  6. Top each pie with another circle and pat down on the sides to cover the apples.
  7. Taking the back of a fork make a design around the outside of the pie (watch video for visual).
  8. Make 2-3 air holes in each pie, brush with your egg wash, and finally top off with a sprinkle of sugar.
  9. Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes and ENJOY!
