Mini Cranberry-Apple Pies

Recipe for Mini Cranberry-Apple Pies


1 pound sweet apples, peeled
3/4 pound tart apples, peeled
1/4 cup chunky cranberry sauce
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon granulated sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch nutmeg
All-Purpose Pie Dough (see recipe below)
flour (for work surface)
1 large egg, well beaten
1 tablespoon coarse or regular granulated sugar


If you have some 3- or 4-inch pie plates or a mini-pie maker on hand, you can produce four small pies using this recipe.

Preheat oven to 475°F. Cut apples into small chunks (rather than slices).

In a bowl, stir together apples, cranberry sauce, sugar, and spices.

Lightly flour your work surface. From All-Purpose Pie Dough, roll out 8 small crusts. Line pie plates with dough. (If you’re using a mini-pie maker, follow manufacturer’s instructions.)

Bake at 475°F 10 minutes; then reduce oven temperature to 350°F and bake 30 minutes longer.
