Personal Sized Apple Pies

A personal sized Apple Pie to treat yourself!!
Complexity Level:  Easy
Personal Sized Apple Pies
What You Need:
Flaky Butter Crust (or buy Pre Made Roll Out Pie Crust)
2 Sticks Butter -- room temperature
4 cups Flour
2 cups Ice Water (yeah water with ice!) -- you do not necessarily need all the water

4 Apples (1/2 an apple per pie)
1/2 cup Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon

Cooking Spray
Muffing Tin

To start the crust, (crust recipe only herePlace room temp butter in a large mixing bowl.  Add the flour. I love to mix with my hands -- the goal is to cut all the butter into the flour, and to saturate the flour with it, without creaming -- basically the flour will have some parts with chunks of butter. Add the ice water until the dough is moist, not sticky, able to be handled without sticking to hands.

Now it is ready to roll. Flour the counter, and rolling pin, and start rolling out the dough. You need to roll it about 1/4 inch thick.  I used a Martini Glass to cut the perfect rounds for my mini pies.

Next, skin the apples and slice them thinly.  Toss with the sugar, cinnamon, and the 1 tbsp Flour.  Place a round of pie crust into the muffin tins.  Spoon in the filling, and top with criss crossed pie dough.  Brush with Egg wash and place into the oven.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.  Remove and let sit 5minutes before pulling from pan.  Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar!

It snowed this morning, and these seemed perfect for a lazy weekend!
