Filling:

  • 8 Cups of Apples (cut into small bits)
  • 12 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 1/2c of sugar
  • 4 heaping teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg

You'll also need:

  • 4 tablespoons of chilled butter cut into 24 equal portions.
  • Two boxes of Pillsbury pie crusts (four chilled NOT frozen crusts)

Makes 12 - 24 depending on the muffin pan you use

Directions

  1. Mix the Filling ingredients together in a bowl until fully coated
  2. Unroll the Pie Crusts and cut out small circles (mason jar lid worked great), save the scraps for the top
  3. Line each cup of your muffin tin with a tiny pie crust.
  4. I found that pinching the edge of the dough around the top edge of the tin and making a hammock of sorts worked really well. 
  5. Gently fill the crusts with your apple mixture and push the crusts down the rest of the way. 
  6. Fill until slightly "mounded"
  7. Place 1 "butter piece" on top of the filling in each muffin.
  8. Top each muffin with the leftover Pie scraps from earlier... some will be pretty, some you'll just love yourself lol.
  9. Brush the tops with Butter and bake for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees.  Keep an eye on them though, because they're small they can burn easily.
