easy apple pie bites

Hi there, Stefanie with Simple Acres here again to share some deliciousness with you! Apple desserts are one of my favorites! As the air becomes more crisp and our homes more cozy the smell of apple pie in the oven is a must. I am excited to share some Easy Apple Pie Bites that will steal your heart at first bite.

Mini Apple Pies recipe, so good! Perfect fall dessert recipe, yum!

This version of apple pie is a unique one in that we will be using the apple itself as the “container” for the pie. What I love about these Apple Pie Bites is just that, they are a few bites but so satisfying. This recipe simplifies the ability to treat oneself in decadence and moderation.

Easy Apple Pie Bites

Easy apple pie bites, apple halved and filled with easy apple pie filling.
Author Lolly Jane

Ingredients

  • 3 apples I used Breaburn and Granny Smith.
  • Pie crust pre-made or homemade
  • cinnamon to preference on top of dessert
  • 2-3 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 4-6 Tbsp of sugar; may add slowly and taste per preference for increased sugar need for mixture
  • caramel sauce drizzle on top per preference

Instructions

  • Wash your apples then cut them in half.
  • Use a melon baller to scoop the flesh out of the center of the apples as pictured below. Discard the seeds then save the rest of the apple flesh for pie filling.
  • Chop the flesh of the apple into small pieces and cook on medium to low heat in a pan with the apple juice, flour, sugar and apple pie spice. Once the apples have softened and the liquid is thickened the mixture is done. Replace it back into the apple bowls.
  • Cut the pie crust to be slightly larger that the apple top. Cover the bowls with pie crust. Lightly brush the crust with egg, then sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar.
  • Bake at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
