  • 1 package refrigerated pie crust dough 2 crusts
  • 1 can apple pie filling 21 ounces
  • 1 egg optional
  • 1 tbsp sugar optional


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Remove the pie crust from the fridge and let it warm up to room temperature. Unroll each crust and use a 4-inch round cookie cutter to cut out nine circles.
  • Carefully press each of the 4 inch circles into one of the muffin cups. The edge of the dough should hang slightly over the top of the cup.
  • Fill each cup with apple pie filling.
  • Combine the leftover dough scraps and roll the dough with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface until it’s around 1/8 inch thick. Using a pizza cutter, slice the dough into small strips, about ¼-inch wide.
  • Use a 3-inch round cookie cutter to cut the strips into circles.
  • Remove every other strip from the circle and place the strips horizontally on top of the mini pie. Weave the remaining strips vertically through the horizontal strips to form a lattice pattern on top of the apples.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg until smooth, then brush the egg wash over the top of each pie with a pastry brush.
  • Sprinkle sugar on top of each pie.
  • Bake the pies in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until the crust is golden brown. Allow them to cool to room temperature before serving.


  • You can make this recipe easier by skipping the top crust, and making a crumb topping with some butter, flour, and brown sugar instead. (You can use the extra dough to make more pies.)
  • If you don’t have a circle cookie cutter that’s the right size, you can use a large drinking glass instead.
