Personal pies are one of the few slivers of magic left in this world. Like Santa and bacon. So while I was basking in my 6-month pregnancy glory, I started to crave a little apple pie magic. Which is totally fine because I have a stash homemade apple pie filling hanging out in my cellar for occasions such as this.
This personal apple pie recipe is as simple as it gets. The prep time is less than ten minutes. So from the time you start daydreaming about apple pie to the time you’re eating it shamelessly in front of your children is roughly 25-30 minutes.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 18 mins
Total Time: 28 mins
- 2 Premade Refrigerated Pie Crusts , or your own pie crust recipe if that’s what you’re into
- 1 Pint Homemade Apple Pie Filling , recipe available at DIBY.club
- 1 Egg
- 1 tbsp Milk
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and prepare a baking sheet by laying a piece of parchment paper over top. Roll out your pie crusts. TIP: Pie crusts are easiest to roll out after sitting out to thaw to room temperature.
- With the pie crusts on top of one another, cut them into quarters. Having them stacked on top of each other just helps ensure you have two matching quarters to make each pie with.
- Separate the pie crusts and scoop your apple pie filling onto four quarters.
- Lay the other four quarters back on top of the other pie crust and filling. Press the edges down with the end of a fork to seal then cut three 1/2″ slits on the top of each personal pie.
- Beat your egg and milk together then brush lightly over the top of each personal. pie.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
The easiest way to roll out your refrigerated pie crust is to let it sit on the counter for about 15 minutes before hand.
I also, like to stack the two pie crusts on top of each other when I quarter them so that I know I’ll have matching pieces to assemble my personal pies. I have issues making my quarters perfect then I get ticked when I have to stretch pieces around to get them to match up later on.
You are, of course, welcome to use a store bought can of apple pie filling but if you’re in the mood for something super duper special, you can make your own apple pie filling with this recipe.
Scooping, sealing, slitting and egg washing is pretty straight forward but I was on a roll taking pictures anyway so here you go visual people!
They come out so pretty and tasty. The best part is that you can essentially eat a quarter of a pie with less judgment than if someone saw you eat an actual quarter of a pie.
Pin it for later!
