Ingredients

Mini apple pies
  • 3 sheets frozen shortcrust pastry, thawed
  • 200 gram can pie apple, chopped
  • 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoon sugar

Method

Mini apple pies
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Grease two 12-hole mini muffin pans.
  • 2
    Using a 6cm round cutter, cut 16 rounds from each sheet of pastry. Use 24 to line muffin pans. Line with baking paper and fill with pastry weights or dried beans and blind bake for 10 minutes.
  • 3
    Remove paper and weights. Fill each pastry case with apple. Top with a round of pastry, pressing edges to seal. Brush with egg and pierce a hole in top of each pie to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle sugar over top and bake for 15 minutes, until golden. Cool on a wire rack before serving.

Notes

Add frozen mixed berries with the apple, or sprinkle a little ground cinnamon on top of each.
