There's something undeniably charming about mini desserts. They capture all the flavors and comfort of their full-sized counterparts, but in a delightful, bite-sized package. When it comes to mini desserts, Mini Apple Pies take the cake – or should I say, the pie! And when you add a drizzle of  our UNSALTED Almond Butter, you take this classic treat to a whole new level of deliciousness.


  • One package store-bought pie dough (we used a 2-pack of 9-inch crusts)
  • 3 medium Honeycrisp or Pink Lady apples (you’ll need about 2 cups of diced apples)
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • Juice from ½ a lemon
  • 1 large egg mixed with 1 tbsp. water for an egg wash
  • Spread The Love® UNSALTED Almond Butter for drizzling


  • Step 1 -
    Preheat oven to 425°F and lightly grease 6 cavities of a muffin tin, set aside.
  • Step 2 -
    Unroll the dough, then using a 4-inch cookie cutter or glass, cut out 6 circles and gently press them into the muffin tin.
  • Step 3 -
    Peel and finely dice the apples, then prepare filling by adding apples to a large bowl with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cornstarch and lemon juice. Stir to combine.
  • Step 4 -
    Divide the apple pie filling evenly into the mini pies, over-filling each just slightly.
  • Step 5 -
    Roll out the rest of your dough to make the lattice toppers. Use a pizza cutter to cut long strips into the dough, about ¼ inch wide.
  • Step 6 -
    Line up 4 strips vertically, leaving about ¼ inch of space between each. Weave strips horizontally between them to create a lattice.
  • Step 7 -
    Using your cookie cutter or glass, cut out circles from the lattice and place them on top of the pies, gently pinching the edges to seal.
  • Step 8 -
    Brush your pies with egg wash, then bake for 18-22 minutes, or until pies are golden brown on top.
  • Step 9 -
    Allow to cool, then drizzle with UNSALTED Almond Butter and enjoy!
