DESCRIPTION

The little pies are a cinch to make and yet are bursting with flavor and fun.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 apples, cored, peeled and cut in a ½ inch dice
  • 2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • ¼ cup dried blueberries
  • ½ cup butterscotch chips
  • a 67 oz. store-bought or homemade unbaked pie crust

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. In a medium bowl combine apples, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and lemon juice.
  3. Fill four 6 ounce capacity ramekins halfway full with the apple mixture. Divide the blueberries among the ramekins followed by the butterscotch chips. Top with remaining apples. The ramekins will be well-mounded.
  4. Roll out the pie crust to an 11” rectangle or circle. Cut in half lengthwise and then again in half widthwise to create 4 equal pieces.
  5. Place one of the dough quarters onto a ramekin. Push the dough down onto the edges of the ramekin to cut it off. Use a fork to crimp all around the edges and to poke some holes in the top of the crust. Repeat with remaining dough until all four ramekins have a top crust.
  6. From the dough trimmings, use cookie cutters or a knife to cut shapes or letters. Brush these pieces lightly with water and affix one onto the top of each pie.
  7. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and transfer the baking sheet to the oven. Bake until the crust is well-browned and the filling is hot, 23-26 minutes (or as specified by your pie crust directions).
