I don’t think there are many desserts that are more comforting than apple pie. In fact, an easy apple pie recipe made from scratch is a treasure.

Today I’m sharing the best apple pie recipe and I’m sure you’re going to love it.

This recipe yields one single serving apple pie. It also comes complete with a recipe for an easy-to-make crust that’s just the right size for this mini pie.

This recipe provides the perfect amount to line a mini pie pan.

To make the pie crust, you will need:

  • flour

If you don’t want to make a pie crust, use my crushed graham cracker crust recipe instead.

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

    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!

    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! 👏😁

    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 🙂

    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!

        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.

    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 🙂
