  • 2 Granny Smith Apples large
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 box pie crust 14.1 ounces


  • Peel and dice the apples. Mix with lemon juice, brown sugar, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon, and cloves. Allow to sit at least 30 minutes or covered overnight.
  • Unroll the pie crust. Using a round (or really and shape you desire-I used leaves) cookie cutter, cut out an even number of shapes. You can ball up the dough and re-roll it to get more pies.
  • Spoon a tablespoon of filling onto half of the crust circles, leaving a little room all the way around the edge. Brush a bit of beaten egg around the edge of the circle. Lay the other circle on top of the filing. Using a fork, press around the edges of the pie, sealing it. Brush additional egg wash over the top crust. Poke a few steam vents.
  • Lay your finished pies on a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
