Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 Mini Pies
Author: Bite Sized Kitchen
Ingredients
  • 1 Frozen Pie Crust (defrosted)
Chai Apple Filling
  • 1 Large Peeled Granny Smith Apple (diced small)
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 Chai Tea Bag
  • 1 Tbsp Cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt
1 Mini Muffin Tin
Instructions
  1. Add water and cornstarch to a small sauce pan on high heat and WHISK it until thoroughly mixed. (a whisk works best!)

  2. Then immediately add the other filling ingredients and stir.

  3. Apple pie filling should thicken nicely and can take up to 10 minutes. If too thick, add more water. Consistency should be thick but pour-able.

  4. While sauce thickens, cut your pie dough into 3" rounds and press firmly into mini muffin tins. Use a fork around the edges if desired. Make sure dough is evenly distributed and the bottom and sides are the same thickness.

  5. When filling is done, add a generous amount of filling to each tin and bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. The crust's edges should be lightly browned.

  6. Allow to cool slightly and serve! Top with whipped cream if desired!
