Apple Pie Filling

  1. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice and set aside. Pour water into a Dutch oven over medium heat. Combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg in a bowl; add to water, stir well, and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  2. Add apples and return to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until apples are tender, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cool for 30 minutes.
  3. Ladle into 5 freezer containers, leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Cool at room temperature no longer than 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Seal and freeze. 


Mini Apple Pies

Push the circle of pie filling down in your muffin tin.  Fill the tin with pie filling.  Then cut out various shapes with cookie cutters from those same refrigerated pie crusts.  Top your mini apple pies with the cutouts.  The beauty of making these pies like this is you can make as many or as few as you want.

Just bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until the pie crust is nice and brown.  Let sit for about 10 minutes before trying to remove from the muffin tin.

Enjoy these mini apple pies with nothing but your hands!  They are so convenient to eat that a plate and fork are not even necessary.  Plus they are perfect for any fall parties or family gatherings.
