Mini Cypriot Apple Pies
Crust for the pies: 2 cups flour
2⁄3 cup butter (chilled)
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons water
Filling for the pies:
5 medium apples (peeled and chopped up into small pieces)
3⁄4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
6 tablespoons flour 2 tablespoons butter (chilled)
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Get muffin pan out. No need to grease it.
In food processor blend flour, salt and butter
Add in water and blend just until it looks like it's sticking. Take out and combine it by hand until well blended.
Roll out on lightly floured surface until its thick.
Cut circles with cup or bowl
Note: you can use the rest of the crust for anything you may want to do on top of the pies.
Press each circle in muffin tins until all the way up each side, to form little bowls.
Mix by hand all filling ingredients and spoon into muffin bowls.
Cut up butter into 12 little pieces and place one piece on each pie.
Bake at 180 degrees for 16-18 minutes. (Until crust is light brown and apples are bubbling).
