Mini Dutch Apple Pies are a great dessert for a crowd when hosting during this cool autumn season.
Apple pie is a must this time of year. I don’t make pie that often only about two maybe three a year. Apple pie is always one of those pies. I do the traditional double
It’s pure comfort food. There’s nothing I love more on a cool autumnal night than a slice of warm apple pie topped with vanilla ice cream. It’s especially comforting after spending the afternoon in the kitchen making the pie. I don’t really mind though. It’s an annual thing and I quite enjoy the process of peeling the apples and rolling the pie dough.
Every now and then it’s nice to mix things up. I was thinking about Thanksgiving and how cute little apple pies would be for a dessert option. Since the pies are small I thought a streusel topping would be easier to throw together especially for a holiday dinner.
What’s great about this recipe is that it’s very easy to put together. You don’t have to be the world’s best baker to make them. I do prefer to make my own pie dough but if you don’t want to it’s totally okay. There are some pretty decent refrigerated pie doughs that you can use instead. The apples and the streusel topping are the stars in these Mini Dutch Apple Pies.
I like to use a variety of apples in my pies. I always have at least Fuji and Golden Delicious. They’re my favorite apple duo. If I have other varieties to use I’ll also throw them in.
You can make these ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator. When dessert time comes around just warm them up in a 200-degree oven until they’re warmed through. Top them with freshly whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on the side. I hope you enjoy these Mini Dutch Apple Pies as much as we do! My husband went absolutely head over heels for them!
