Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Cut 4 6-inch rounds out of the pie crusts, and fit them into 4 5-inch mini pie dishes. Cut remaining pie crust into 1/8-inch strips, and set dough aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix the diced apple, tapioca, sugar, lemon juice, nutmeg, and cinnamon until thoroughly combined; allow the mixture to stand for 5 minutes to soften the tapioca. Stir the mixture again, and spoon into the pie shells. Use the strips of dough to weave a small lattice crust on top of each pie, and pinch the strips onto the bottom crust.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the pies are browned and the filling is thickened and bubbling, about 30 minutes. Cool before serving.

These were so tasty! I made 2 changes to the recipe, though. I cut out the tapioca and added a crumb topping like on dutch apple pie. My husband loved them!!! No need for the tapioca in my opinion.

It doesn't state how much lemon juice to add and I would like to try this recipe for Thanksgiving (I'm not an experienced cook so I wouldn't be able to even guess). SOMEONE PLEASE HELP. Thanks! (I'm going to give 1 star because I'm not rating this recipe and it's MAKING me rate in order to submit.)

Definite keeper!! Added a bit of brown sugar and vanilla. Stretched the recipe for 6 jumbo muffin cups.

Mini apples are great because they take less time to cook and cool!

Fun & Yummy! Thanks for sharing! BTW, those that are concerned about calorie counts should NOT be looking at a pie recipe...there's lard/shortening in crust! Why must people out there make snarky comments about recipes on this website that are not claiming to be "light" or "low fat"? If you're counting calories & fat grams you should know not to bother looking at certain recipes that are obviously not in that category. Modify it to fit your dietary needs or skip it altogether. Thank you.

I used the pie dough recipe from allrecipes.com - it is excellent - I bought the 6 inch ceramic pie plates from Hamilton Beach - then got this recipe - did not have tapioca so added 2 T. flour to thicken - thought it was very good -- would definitely make them again. Great if you are only 1 or 2 for dinner and want apple pie - not to much just enough with a little bit of vanilla ice cream --- YUM MO

Octavia, I think the only reason the recipe calls for lemon juice is to keep the apples from turning an unappealing brown. My standby recipe does not call for any lemon juice, so I can assume that you could get away by not using it. If you do want to use lemon juice, I would use maybe only a half teaspoon for this recipe. I have tried this both ways and delish both ways. I still use my standby recipe for family gatherings, but this recipe is good for in between when it's just my husband and me.

Delish! As stated by another reviewer, please don't rate a desert based on CALORIES. Obviously an experienced cook could certainly change this recipe to lower the sugar and fat content but then it wouldn't be this recipe...would it. Instead of criticizing a wonderful recipe, how about you post your own "diet" version. Be creative and share!
