Doesn’t this look delicious? I know. It does. Wouldn’t you like to make one for yourself? You sure would! Here’s how you make Mini Apple Pie Cups.
First get out a few ramekins. Next take out your store-bought pie crust. I used a rolling pin to flatten it out a bit, just to get a bit more crust out of it. Cut it into quarters and put each quarter into a ramekin, being careful to push it into the dish without tearing it.
Next up, dice up one apple and split the pieces in between the four dishes.
You’ll want to sprinkle some cinnamon on top of the apples and splash a little lemon juice on the apples.
After that you want to add a little slice of butter (not too much, just a tidbit) and sprinkle with a little bit of flour.
Once all of the ingredients have been added, fold the crust over the apples and create a top crust, pinching the crust together to close it.
I used a baking sheet to get all four ramekins in the oven at one time. You’ll want to bake the mini apple pie cups at 400ºF for about 15 to 20 minutes. Watch them carefully; you want the crust to be browned, but not burnt.
Once cooked through, top with a helping scoop of ice cream. I served mine right out of the oven so the heat of the cup would melt the ice cream a tad and create that awesome apple-crust-ice cream goodness where warm meets cold in the most delicious combination. Mmmmm, yum!
