Mini Dutch Apple Pies

I love apple pie, and because I am basically lazy, Mini Dutch Apple Pie is great because I only have to make one crust.   I also love the cinnamon, brown sugar, and oat topping that I make for my Mini Dutch Apple Pie.  A few weeks ago I had bought a few packages of Pillsbury Grands Crescent Rolls, thinking that they would be an easy way to make some different recipes.  I thought the crescent rolls would make a great crust for these cute little apple pies.  After tasting them, I can tell use they were a great choice.

Since I have started writing the blog, I had to start measuring ingredients,  that is something that I don't normally do, but for all of you, I measure.  I figure that I can't just tell you to pour the ingredients in a bowl,  that wouldn't work for you at all. So being a good blogger friend I measured everything out in order to write out this great recipe for you.  So here it is, my recipe for Mini Dutch Apple Pie.

Mini Dutch Apple Pie


6 granny smith apples ( peeled, cored, and sliced)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water  + 2 TB water set aside
1/2 tsp cinnamon'
1/3 tsp nutmeg
1 TB cornstarch
1 can Pillsbury grands crescent rolls

Topping Ingredients:

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup flour'
1/2 cup oats
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and spray non stick spray in 3 large muffin cups of a 6 muffin cup pan.  These make the large muffins not the regular size.

Next put the apples, 1/4 cup water, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small to medium sized sauce pan.  Stir well and cook over medium heat, until apples are soft.

Mix cornstarch and water, and then add  to the cooked apples and cook for a minute or two, until the liquid is thickened.

Next, open the package of crescent rolls.  Press the crescent rolls into rectangles.  You will have three crescent rolls  to make three pie crusts.

Meanwhile,  mix all of the ingredients for the topping.

Then, put the crescent roll dough into three of the muffin cups.  Put the dough into the bottom of the muffin cups, and fold the dough on the top of the sides into a rustic looking pie crust. 

Next, put the apple pie filling inside the crescent roll crust.

Then sprinkle the topping over the 3 mini pies.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.

Take out of oven, remove mini  Dutch Apple Pies from muffin tin and cool on rack.

Serve hot or cold
