apple pielettes

Sometimes I just don’t want to share a dessert.  When I want my very own cake, I have a cupcake.  When I want a pie all to myself–let’s not talk about the time I ate an entire Mrs. Smith’s for dinner–  these Apple Pielettes, made in a muffin tin, will fit the bill nicely.

This recipe uses Dorie’s galette dough.  I don’t think we’ve made it before, but it was easy to do in the food processor and easy to work with. Remembering the kuchen from a few weeks ago, I was mentally prepared to be annoyed fitting the dough into cavities of the muffin tin, but this was actually no problem at all (although you’ll probably find that you need to cut your dough circles slightly larger than the recipe states if you really want to fill the tins).  The dough baked flaky and crisp…I’d use it for big-girl pies, too.

The filling is nice, with apple, of course, (which I didn’t bother to peel) and flavors from dried apricots, raisins and a bit of orange marmalade.  If you are an all-American apple pie purist, I’m sure you could fiddle with the insides to get just what you want.  After all, it’s your very own pie.

  1. Your pies took on that lovely brown all around. I get very possessive of my own pie too!

  2. Wow those are beautiful! Definitely have to try this.

  3. Your pielettes look amazing! I agree that these were much easier to put together than the apple kuchen!

  4. those are so adorable!

  5. Your pielettes look delicious. I tried making that Apple kuchen twice before admitting defeat… Oh well!

  6. Your pies look delicious and nicely browned. Dorie says that color equals flavor and yours look very tasty!

  7. I like how your sugar showed up…mine went away 🙂

  8. Next time I would definitely ut the circles larger… that would solve my need for more filling! Your pictures are gorgeous!

  9. Your pielettes are such a lovely golden colour. I thought that this dough was much easier to handle than the kuchen dough also (and was grateful for this!)

  10. Your pies look delicious and have such a beautiful color. This was a big hit in our
    house, and I will definitely be making them again.

  11. I love how easy (and delicious) this dough is, too. Can’t wait to experiment with it. Your pielettes are so pretty!

  12. What a cute idea!! They look fantastic, I am definitely going to try this.


  13. These look beautiful! I’ve never thought of making apple pielettes before. I already have a Halloween recipe but I’ll definitely be bookmarking this for reference. Will try it out soon. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  14. Personal pies are a great idea… especially for a party! Love it!

  15. Cute pies Steph!

  16. You had me at the great pictures and then you sealed it with your memories of Mrs Smiths – LOL Love it !!! Great post and great results 🙂

  17. I agree with you on the size of the circles. I used a standard muffin tin and I thought 3 inch cutter was a little small. These are fun and I just need to fiddle with the recipe a bit. Do try David Lebovitz Cinnamon ice cream, you will love it.

  18. I should start cooking. Hope it will be beautiful and look delicious as yours

  19. So cute! And so good! Circles do need to be bigger. I had to stretch some of mine.

  20. MMM 🙂 This looks good. I’m going to try this too. WIsh me luck!


  21. These are so cute and the filling looks like heaven. A must try!
