For the apple pie filling:

  • lemon juice

How To Make An Apple Pie

  1. Toss the apple slices into a large bowl and stir in the sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. Let sit while you prepare the dough.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt. Using a fork, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles wet sand. Add the water and stir to form dough. Transfer the dough to a cutting board and roll into a ball. Roll out the dough to form a circle. Lightly oil a small tart or pie pan. Fit the crust into the pan. Poke the bottom of the pie crust with a fork a few times.
  3. Pour in apples and dot with butter.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the pie and you’ll have yourself the ultimate apple pie for one!

I use a 4.75-inch round tart/quiche pan or a 1-cup ramekin for this recipe. For best results use a dish of similar size.

    I made this for my mom, she loves apple tarts, pies, crumbles, and more. She loved it! I don’t like apple things personally but I tried it and loved it!

    Totally recommend

    1. Emma,

      I’m so happy your mom (and you!) enjoyed the apple pie. That makes me so happy to hear. Thanks so much for letting me know.

    This is the cutest little apple pie ever! Everyone else in my family likes cherry pies, so I never get apple! Totally making this so I can have my favorite pie!

  3. 5 stars
    Way to go Joanie! I don’t eat much sugar or desserts but sometimes I get in the mood for something and this recipe was perfect because it doesn’t require much sugar. I like the way that it was so quick and simple. Just for fun I added some honey and walnuts to the apple mixture and I topped it with a little bit of apple crisp topping. Plus instead of ice cream I used a scoop of yogurt on top. It worked GREAT and was oh so delicious thanks to you! 👏😁

    1. Awesome, it sounds delicious! I’m so happy you enjoyed the recipe. I bet the walnuts and the apple crisp topping were great additions!

  4. 5 stars
    I just baked this recipe and have to say I love it! Since I’m the only one in my family who enjoys eating apple pies, it’s perfect for me because I don’t have to bake a large pie and then watch it being wasted…
    So thank you so much for this recipe because I have been craving to eat one and it came up 🙂

  5. Ashlyn @ Belle of the Kitchen

    I love single serving desserts for late night cravings. I think I could eat a few of these all by myself though! 😉

  6. Kacey @ The Cookie Writer

    How great is this for portion control! I have to admit, I do not think I could help myself to only one piece 🙂 I bought small cake pans (4-inches) to start making mini cakes. It will save time, money, and not have me tempted to eat an entire 9-inch cake!

    1. These are great for portion control and for when you want just a little something sweet. For those cooking for one person, it won’t leave them with a whole lot of leftovers. Thanks, Kacey!

  7. Patricia @ Grab a Plate

    Amazing! I’m in love with this! And I do believe that my “diet” will be suffering a bit, as I will likely want to make this and devour it a few times a week 😉

  8. amanda @ fake ginger

    I bought my grandmother mini pie pans for Christmas and now I totally want to order some for myself. This is GENIUS. I could definitely go for my own tiny apple pie right now.

  9. Jennifer Stewart

    Since tapas is my thing, I love that this pie is for one! Plus with apple pie around I can’t control my portions!!

  10. Chrisy @ Homemade Hooplah

    Such a cute idea! We’ve got a couple small summer parties planned – I think these would be perfect for dessert!

      1. 5 stars
        As a college student with a sweet tooth, I’ve got to say this is probably the best apple pie I’ve ever had. Thanks for the super awesome recipe!

        1. Katherine, Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m so happy you enjoyed the recipe and I appreciate you taking the time to let me know. Thank you.

  11. Faith (An Edible Mosaic)

    My hubby and I can rarely agree on dessert, so single-serving recipes are my favorite! I love apple pie so this really perfect. 🙂

    1. I can relate, Faith. My husband and I can rarely agree on a single dessert too. With single serving desserts, at least we we can share and we get to have a bit of both 🙂

    1. Thank you, Stephanie. Single serving desserts can certainly satisfy a craving without having to deal with leftovers.
