I had this idea to make some mini apple pies and decided to use muffin tins. Also, I wanted to use a different pie crust, I follow Connie Murray @Happybellyfoodie.com.
Back in May of this year, Connie posted this recipe, Butter Crust Chicken Pot Pie. Ever since I read this post I've wanted to try her pie crust recipe so here was my opportunity.
When you read Connie's recipe you'll see that she made the crust in a food processor using chilled butter. I used a KitchenAid stand mixer so I thought it best to have the butter at room temperature.
Other than that I followed her instructions perfectly and what a wonderful crust this makes, you can get this recipe by clicking the above link for her Chicken Pot Pie, and enjoy so many more of her amazing recipes.
Here is how I made these muffin tin apple pies:
I filled these with my apple mixture, oh and by the way I added 1 tablespoon of sugar and sprinkled some cinnamon into the apples while I made the pie crust. Then I cut tops for these using a 2 1/2 inch glass top and pressed them together. Adding a sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon on top, then cut two slices on the top of each one as a vent.
Connie's pie crust recipe is buttery, flaky and melts in your mouth, Thank You, Connie.
As always Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
