Mini Apple Pies

No baked item says the holiday season to me like an apple pie. I remember my Grandma baking pies from scratch and pinching the crusts with her hands. Making pie crust is an art, but for those times when you are in a time crunch Pillsbury™ Pie Crusts come in handy. The work is already done for you. All you have to  do is prepare the filling.

These mini apple pies are a treat at any gathering. They are great for large crowds or with a bowl of ice cream. Best of all they are easy to make and only one bowl gets messy in the process.

Mini Apple Pies 

Yield - 12 mini pies


1 box Pillsbury pie crust
10 medium sized granny smith apples
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
