Easy Mini Apple Pies

I got the inspiration for this from a book called Quick Meal Solutions which I  checked out from our local library. It is full of ways to make meals, snacks and desserts easier for busy lifestyles. I changed up the recipe while keeping the basic premise.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 7.5 ounce can of small biscuits (10 to a can)
  • 20 ounce can of apple pie fillingStreusel topping:
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

The tiny biscuits work best, but if you can only find larger ones,  cut them in half”sideways,”  so they won’t be so large that they push the filling out when they bake.
Then pat them down in your muffin tin, and up the sides as much as you can, so it will hold the filling.
(I did give my pan a quick spray of vegetable oil, just to ensure easy removal).

Then put a large spoonful (about 2 Tablespoons) of apple pie filling in each one.

Make up the streusel topping, and sprinkle on each little pie.

Bake for 15 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees, till the biscuit crust is golden.  The wide range in baking time is because I’ve made these in metal pans, and in silicone on top of a cookie sheet, and the time various quite a bit.
Serve as is or with a scoop of vanilla icecream!

  1. how much do i love that you utilize your local library!!

    PS. I don’t tend to buy processed food (ie canned apples & pre-made dough) – not that there’s anything wrong with that! But you’ve inspired me to make a from scratch version 🙂

  2. Those look so delish on the cold day it is here. Of course I’m in love with anything miniature!
    Have a great day!

  3. Now that’s the kind of easy recipe I like — easy yet unique. Can’t wait to grab some apple filling so I can try them.

  4. Hi Margo,
    I just love your little Apple Pies, they look so good. My very best wishes to you and your family for a blessed Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope to see you again real soon!

  5. What an easy great treat! Great idea to use the biscuits. YUM! I’d love for you to stop by my linky party tomorrow, Crazy Sweet Tuesday, sometime. 🙂

  6. I’ve got a very similar recipe that’s upside down – you start with a little brown sugar, butter, and sliced apple and then put the biscuit on top. When it’s done baking you invert and it’s like a mini apple tatin. SO simple…

  7. Oh yum! This is perfect:) I am seriously loving your post! It is so informative and I think my subscribers would really enjoy reading this. I would love for you to come share it at Frugal Days, Sustainable Ways on Frugally Sustainable (http://frugallysustainable.blogspot.com/2011/11/frugal-days-sustainable-ways-2.html). I really hope that you will put Frugal Days, Sustainable Ways on your list of carnivals to visit and link to each Wednesday!
