Apple Butter Pie Tarts are a great food gift for the holidays. Perfect bite-size tarts with apple butter filling and an oatmeal streusel topping! One of the best apple recipes to make for a delicious fall dessert!
I have always thought that little, bite-sized pies were so cute. I mean, any dessert that you can pick up and eat with your fingers? It’s just perfect in my mind. When I picture these little Apple Butter Pie Tarts, I think of a family get-together with a table full of sweets and everyone grazing on the delicious goodness. No need to even have plates, because they go from fingers to mouth in one bite:)
I’ve never before made mini pies in my mini muffin tins, but after tasting our Homemade Apple Butter, I knew that I had to make mini apple pies with a streusel on top, using the apple butter as a pie filling.
These little beauties didn’t last long at our house. In fact, my hubby and I may have helped them to disappear while the kids were watching a movie one night:)
Take your favorite pie crust recipe, or if you are in a rush, get the store bought kind. Although I am a huge fan of homemade pie crust, there are just some times when you need that short cut…and that’s OK!
Place some pie dough in the bottom and up the sides of a mini-muffin tin that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Put about half a teaspoon of apple butter in the pie dough cup, and sprinkle some streusel on top.
Then bake these little tarts.
Simple as that and you have a cute little pie, with a smooth, apple and cinnamon filling!
Package these up for someone as a little gift….your kids’ teachers, friends, neighbor, or an elderly couple nearby.
They’ll love them, and they’ll love you for sharing them!
Hey, I was just wondering if the step that says “add 1/2 a teaspoon of apple butter into each cup” should be 1/2 tablespoon instead? 1/2 tsp just seemed like it might not fill the cup enough. Otherwise, this looks amazing and I’m going to make it with pumpkin butter this weekend. Yum yum!
You KILL me with your baked treats! So YUMMMMMMMY – love the apple butter!
