While we’ve got the deliciousness of apples on the brain, have you tried my Apple Dump Cake? This is a rich, buttery cake covered with a yummy crumb topping. Dump cakes are known for their effortless prep, and this recipe is no different. Dump, bake, done!
Another great combination of apples and cake is my Apple Coffee Cake. I love this cake for breakfast, but it hits the spot anytime!
I couldn’t talk apples without mentioning my Apple Bars with a caramel glaze. These pieces of apple heaven are just sweet enough, with the perfect touch of cinnamon.
You can really play around with this Mini Apple Pies recipe by choosing different doughs. Making mini apple pies with puff pastry might sound intimidating, but it’s actually easy to do, thanks to the modern luxury of pre-made frozen puff pastry.
If you want a more crumbly crust, try your hand at mini apple pies with shortcrust pastry, and another variation is mini apple pies crescent rolls. You can also create mini dutch apple pies by adding a crumbly topping. All of these pastry doughs work just fine, depending on what you might have around.
No matter how you make ‘em, Mini Apple Pies are fantastic!

Recipe Notes for Mini Apple Pies:
Can You Make These Ahead Of Time:
You can bake these little pies up to four days ahead of time, if you’re planning on refrigerating them. You’ll need to take them out of the muffin pan once they cool and transfer to an airtight container before putting them in the fridge.
How To Freeze These Pies:
The same method applies to freezing these Mini Apple Pies, except you can leave them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Fun fun fun! It’s time for a topping brainstorm! Homemade whipped cream is an amazing addition to my Mini Apple Pies, as is vanilla ice cream. There really is no end to the possibilities. See what you can come up with!
