This recipe is for tiny pies, but as you can see above there's really two options. If you're feeling lazy, feel free to use your second pie crust to make an easy galette. The directions will be the same, but you'll simply pile the apple and pear into the center, fold up the sides, and top with the crumb topping. Easy peasy!

I love how easy it is to use Woot Froot in baking. I mean, they already have the fruit individually sliced! Plus California Walnuts make a great topping that gives the dish a bit of extra fiber and protein (if you're going heavy on the mimosas, it helps, trust me). And we all know that when it comes to grains, Bob's Red Mill is the expert. All together, this makes for a fantastic little pie!

Mini Apple Pear Crumble Pies

-Set oven to 350 degrees F.

-On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pre-made dough sheets until they are 1/8" thick. Use a large glass or biscuit cutter to cut 12 circles out of the dough. Gently press the dough circles into a lightly greased muffin tin and set aside.

-Cut the apples and pears into small, 1/2" pieces. Toss with sugar, cinnamon, and corn starch. Fill dough cups with mixture, they should look almost over-full.

-In a small bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients. Mix together until crumbly--you may need a bit more flour to get a good crumb texture that is moist but not wet.

-Bake for 20 minutes, until dough is set.


  1. I love these individual pies. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I never think of dessert when it comes to brunch, but I'd save room for one or two of these!
