Mini Vegan Apple Pies

I had a few apples lying around, but not enough for a traditional pie, so I made these Mini Vegan Apple Pies! Aren’t they cute?  As someone whose favorite part of a pie is the crust, I found these just as, if not more delicious than their full-sized counterpart.

I served mine with a scoop of almond milk ice cream.  So good!

I used a round cookie cutter slightly larger than my muffin cups and did half with the standard side of the cutter and half with the fluted edge.

Our pie filling gets cooked in a saute pan and spooned into our prepared pie shells once the apples are tender.  Sprinkle with sugar and bake until bubbly and golden.

Let them cool for a few minutes before removing.  I find using a fork works best here.

Don’t worry, they are supposed to look rustic and homemade.

I like to serve two per person with that oh-so-necessary scoop of almond milk ice cream.
