Who doesn’t love to get their own dessert after dinner? Individual desserts are fun and, in the case of these individual skillet apple pies, festive. Perfectly portioned, you’ll want to serve them all fall long.

I love apple pie! It is hands down my absolute favorite pie. When I received the pie top cutter from NordicWare for #appleweek I knew I wanted to make individual skillet pies. Because who doesn’t love to get their own dessert.

NordicWare pie top cutter can be used to make decorative crusts.But how do you use a pie top cutter designed for a 9-inch pie on individual pie? I’ll tell you. You take smaller pieces of pie dough and carefully press them into the pie top cutter.

It’s a little time consuming but not so much that you’ll never do it again. It’s really very easy and worth the extra effort to add a little something extra to the pies.

Cute individual pies are a delightful fall dessert.

This is a classic apple pie. Like a few others these past few weeks, it’s my Mom’s and like some of those too, my Mom wrote Bob’s Favorite.

My Dad had a lot of favorites. That was probably easy because my Mom was such a good cook. This banana bread was also a favorite.

The key to the golden crust is the egg wash. I don’t mix it with a bit of water but some people do. Some use milk instead but I think egg produces a more golden result. A little sprinkle of sugar adds just a bit of sweetness.

This recipe makes 2 pies in a 5-in mini skillet. Easily doubled for more guests or family members. If you prep everything while dinner is cooking then bake while enjoying your meal, dessert is ready.

Individual Skillet Apple Pies

Yield: 2 pies
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Individual desserts are so fun and these apple pies are no exception.

Ingredients

  • 2 apples peeled, cored and sliced into ¼" slices, I used Envy Apples
  • ½ cup sugar, I used Imperial Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons flour
  • ¾ teaspoons apple pie spice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 package refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten
  • Sugar for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Prepare pie crusts: Roll out 1 pie crust. Place 5" cast iron skillets upside down on pie crust and carefully cut a circle ½" larger than skillet. Gently place pie crust in skillet pressing into bottom and up sides. Repeat cutting but set crust aside. This is for the top. Reserve balance of pie crust dough.
  3. In a medium bowl mix sliced apples, sugar, flour, apple pie spice and salt. Toss to coat. Divide apple mixture between skillets, piling the apples into a sort of mound.
  4. Place top crust over apples, gently pressing onto skillet.
  5. Take remaining pie crust dough and cut out apples from a NordicWare pie top cutter. Using the tip of a sharp knife, carefully remove apples and place on top crust of pie in decorative circle with one in the center. You will need 16 - 18 for both pies. (8 - 9 each pie) Repeat until you have enough. Cut 3 or 4 slits between apples to vent pie.
  6. Brush slightly beaten egg over crust and sprinkle with sugar. Bake in 425 degree F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly. Serve warm or room temperature with ice cream if desired.
