Mini Crumb Apple Pies

Make an easy mini apple pie with a crumble topping instead of a full size apple pie! Easier to serve, easier to eat, mini apple pies are the same as my favorite apple pie recipe in bite size form!

For the pie:

  • 2 recipes all butter pie crust or use a refrigerated pack of 2 pie crusts, readymade
  • 5 medium Granny Smith Apples
  • ¼ cup (50g) sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

For the crumb

  • ½ cup (100g) sugar
  • 1 cup (124g) flour
  • 8 tablespoons (113g) butter slightly softened


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray 3 mini muffin tins (36 total cavities) with cooking spray, preferably the kind with flour. Otherwise, grease them with butter or shortening.
  • Unroll your pie crusts and use a 2.5” circle cutter to cut rounds of crust. A cookie cutter is perfect, but a glass or a jar lid will work too. Press one crust into the bottom of each muffin tin cavity. With re-rolling your dough, you will get about 36. Chill until filling is ready.
  • Peel and slice apples to a small dice. Place one inch of water in the bottom of a pot. Add apples and cook, stirring occasionally, approximately 3-5 minutes after water boils. You want the apples semi-opaque but not mushy.
  • Stir 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • While apples are cooking, add the crumb ingredients to a large bowl. Using a fork or pastry cutter, cut the ingredients together until they form coarse crumbs, about the size of a pea.
  • Drain apples very well and divide among crusts, about 1 tablespoon each. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon sugar mixture over the apples in each pie. Add your crumb mixture evenly on top of each, about 1 tablespoon per mini pie. Place muffin tins on a cookie sheet to avoid mess in the oven.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes, until the edges of the crust are browned. Cool at least 10 minutes in pan and remove carefully using a knife to help you lift out each pie.



If you want, you can use a regular size muffin tin and get about 12 pies from two crusts.
