Roasted Apple Pie for One

Apple Pie is the finest of comfort food desserts.  This roasted apple pie yields soft, cinnamon and brown-sugar flavor.  Roasting the apples first is an easy way to ensure a perfect flavor and texture.   Baking the apples in little mugs makes for a fun way to cook up single-serving offerings.  Not to mention, the ideal way to plop a dollop of ice cream right over your own mug of apple pie. 

This recipe will make two big ol’ mug fulls of roasted apple pie.  If you have smaller mugs, that will work beautifully, too. Enjoy!  Enjoy!

Mini Roasted Apple Pies
Single serving pies are filled with soft, roasted apples, then baked to browned perfection.  While the roasting takes time, this recipe is pure and simple.  The perfect way to enjoy apple pie.  
15 granny smith apples, peeled and diced
1/2 cup butter, cut into small squares
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 package prepared pie crusts
Spread apples onto a cookie sheet.  Spread squares of butter over the apples, sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.  Bake in  an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 35-45 minutes.   Remove the apples from the oven.  Carefully place the pie crusts in the bottom of the mugs.  Fill generously with the apple pie mixture.  Top lattice-style with strips of pie crust.  Place mugs on a clean cookie sheet, return to oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, or until the pie crusts are golden brown.  Allow to cool before serving.
