Individual Apple Pies

I have a few friends that love it, when I make them apple pies. I invited one of them, to our home before Christmas for a pre-Christmas dinner. For his Christmas gift, I decided to make him a big dinner, with everything homemade and plentiful. For dessert, I made him his favorite, apple pie. I used my Pastry Crust Dough recipe and made three individual pies. He really enjoyed it and I hope you will like making it too! This recipe for apple pie filling makes 3 deep dish individual apple pies.

 

Ingredients for Filling:

1/4 cup of sugar

2 tablespoons of flour

heaping 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1/8th teaspoon of ground nutmeg

dash of salt

3 cups of peeled and thinly sliced Macintosh Apples

1 1/2 tablespoon of butter (cut into 9 pieces

 

Glaze:

2 teaspoons of water

1 tablespoon of sugar

Directions:

  1. Prepare pastry dough crust, as written here: Pastry Crust Dough
  2. While pastry dough is refrigerating, combine all ingredients for the filling, except the butter.
  3. Divide the pastry dough into 3rds
  4. Take one piece of pastry dough and divide that into 2/3rd and 1/3rd piece
  5. Using the large piece, roll out your dough and place it into a small oven-safe ramekins.
  6. Add 1/3rd of your pie filling into the crust
  7. Add 3 of the pieces of butter.
  8. Cover pie with the remaining 1/3rd piece of dough, rolled out into a circle.
  9. Trim the sides of the pie and seal with a fork
  10. Repeat with the remaining two pies.
  11. Cut vents on the top of the crust, to let out steam
  12. Brush the top of the pie with glaze and bake at 450F for 40 minutes

Enjoy!
