Just like my healthy bun bread or dinner roll or healthy cinnamon raisin bread these pie are also eggless. This recipe makes melt in the mouth pie crust. It does not have much sugar either. Adding brown sugar to the filling it makes recipe healthier too.
Ingredients For Pie Crust:
1.1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2.1/2 cup unsalted butter
4. 3 and 1/2tbsp cold water
1.In a mixing bowl combine flour and butter. Mix the flour until it feels crumbling.
2.Slowly add cold water and make soft dough. Kneed dough well. Cover it with plastic wrap and put in freeze.
Ingredients For Apple Pie Filling:
1.2 Apple (I used red delicious but you can use any other sweet variety)
2.1/4tsp lemon juice
3. pinch of salt
5. 3tbsp brown sugar +3tbsp sugar
6. 1/2tsp cinnamon powder
7. 1tsp roasted all purpose flour (with out butter)
Method for apple filing
1.In a bowl sprinkle salt and lemon juice so that apple does not turn brown. Peal the apple skin and cut them in small cubes. Mix them with salt and lemon juice that is already sprinkled in the bowl.
2. In a sauce pan take butter and put it on medium high heat. After butter is melted, add apple cubes.
3. Stir apple cubes for a minute and then add sugar to it.
4.After apple is tender add cinnamon powder and mix it well.
5. Add all purpose flour and mix it well. Turn off stove top and lets the apple pie filling cool down.
Method for Small Pie
1. Divide pie crust in 10 equal portions
2. Roll each portion about 3 and 1/2" circle.
3. Place each rolled portion at the bottom of mini pie pan. Add 2tsp Apple pie filling and top it with another rolled portion.
4. Press the edges. Make 2-3 slits using knife on the top layer of the pie. This allows for steam to release and make pie crispy.
5.Pre-heat oven at 400 F. Bake the pie for 20 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 350 F bake again for 10 minute.
Pie is ready to serve. Verdict? - Both my grand kids absolutely loved it. For 5 minutes that they were eating the pie, there was no noise at all. My daughter called me about same time they were eating pie and she asked why there is no noise. Where are the kids ! Hope you love this mini apple pie recipe just as much as my grand kids. Do let us know.
