Mini Apple Pies

Mini Apple Pies


1 pkg of refrigerated biscuits
1 apple, peeled and cut into small pieces
2 T brown sugar
1 T lemon juice
1 t apple pie spice (or 1/4 t of allspice, cinnamon, ginger, & nutmeg)
1-2 T butter

Preheat oven to 350.   Put the apple pieces into a small bowl.   Add brown sugar, lemon juice, & spice.   Let set while preparing biscuits.   Have spouse or kids open biscuits (the popping sound freaks me out!)    Take each biscuit and divide in half (should have 12 total pieces).   Take each section and stretch out with your hands until slightly wider than a muffin tin hole.   Push stretched out biscuit piece into a hole of a muffin tin.   Add a small scoop of the apple mix onto each pie crust.   Add a dab of butter to the top of each pie.   Cook for 15 minutes.   Can be served with a dollop of whipped cream.


Deliciously easy!   The kids were able to help prepare and the mini pies were the perfect amount for an after dinner treat!  It would also make an excellent after school snack.   I don't think it will ever replace Mom's homemade apple pie, but if you are craving a bite of apple pie, this is super fast and easy and will hit the spot!
