  • 1 granny smith apple peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 strips bacon cooked crispy and crumbled
  • 1/2 recipe Homademade Pie Crust {or one store bought 9" pie crust dough}


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Sil-Pat.
  2. In small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar. Add apples and toss to coat. Pour apples and any extra cinnamon sugar into saucepan with butter. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, until apples have softened a bit.
  4. While apples are cooking, roll out pie crust. Using a 2" circle or square cookie cutter, cut out as many shapes as you can - making sure to have an even number of pieces for the top and bottom of the pie. Re-roll the pie crust and cut out more small pieces until all pie crust is used.
  5. Mix the bacon in with the apples. Spoon a heaping tablespoonful of the apple mixture on to the center of half your pie crust cut outs.
  6. Place another pie crust piece over the filling and cover until the dough edges touch. Using a fork, press into the edges, all the way around, or each mini pie to seal the edges. Using a sharp knife, cut a small slit in the top to release steam.
  7. Place pies on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until crust begins to brown.
  8. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
