Blog With Friends- September 2017- It's Apple Season!

Hello and welcome to September 2017's edition of Blog With Friends. This month we're all talking about apples. 

I experimented and made Mini Apple Crisp Pies.

I love apple crisp, while the rest of my family prefers apple pie. So, I decided to combine the two. The following recipe makes nine mini-pies right in a muffin tin. 


  • 1 Refrigerated pie crust (or make your own)
  • 1 20 oz. Can of apple pie filling
  • 4 Tbsp. Butter or margarine, divided
  • 1 Tsp. Cinnamon, divided
  • 1/4 C. Flour
  • 1/4 C. Brown sugar
  • 1/2 C. Quick-cooking oats
  • 1 Tbsp. Granulated sugar
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Using a large glass or round Pampered Chef Sandwich Cutter, cut pie crust into rounds. I got seven out of it, and then rolled it again between two pieces of wax paper to get two more out of it. 

  • Place each round into a standard muffin tin and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Melt 2 Tbsp. butter and brush onto each pie crust once removed from the oven. I used my brush to push the dough back down since some of them puffed up.

  • Sprinkle each round with cinnamon and granulated sugar.
  • Divide the can of apple pie filling among each of the nine pie crusts. 
  • Prepare crumb topping and divide among each of the nine pies.
    • To prepare crumb topping:
      • Mix flour, brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon in a bowl. 
      • Melt 2 Tbsp. butter and pour over top of mixture.
      • Mix together with a fork until crumbly.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until tops are crunchy but not burned. 
  • Serve warm with ice cream or any other way you would prefer!

  1. What a perfect marriage of a pie and a crisp, and I love the individual size!

    1. I love the individual size due to the fact that I won't eat as much.

  2. These look absolutely delectable! Ahhh! And the individual size would be perfect for my family where picky eaters abound! :)

  3. A sweet and tasty compromise! They look cute, too, and thanks to the miniature size there is enough room for ice cream on the plate ;-)
