Mini apple pies topped with a brown sugar crumble and baked in mason jar lids. These mason jar lid apple crumble pies are so delicious and individual sized.
  • 1 puff pastry sheet or pie crust dough
  • 1 large egg, beaten for egg wash
Apple Pie Filling
  • 2 small gala apples (about 2 cups diced), or apple of your choice
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup room temperature butter
  • Pomegranate seeds for garnish
  1. First, preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Roll out the dough as thinly as possible. Place the mason jar lid on top and cut around ¼” away from the lid. Or you can use a bowl that is slightly larger than the mason jar lid to trace around. You’ll need about 4. Press the dough against the lid and let the end hang over the edge of the lid. Brush the egg wash over the top to help the pastry turn a golden brown.
  3. Place the lids on a baking sheet or pan and bake them for about 10 minutes.
  4. While the crust is baking, add diced apples, water, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, brown sugar, and granulated sugar into a small pot. Allow the apples to cook for about 10-15 minutes until the apples are soft.
  5. Remove the crust from the oven. If the center has puffed up, use a fork to press the center down. Spoon the apple pie filling into the center of the crust.
  6. In a medium sized bowl, add all purpose flour, butter, and brown sugar. Mix the ingredients together until they are well combined and appear pea sized.
  7. Scatter the crumbs over the apple pie filling until it completely covers the apples.
  8. Turn the temperature of the oven down to 350F.
  9. Bake the apple pies for an additional 15-18 minutes or until the top has turned brown.
  10. Remove the apple pie crumbles from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes.
  11. For a pop of color, sprinkle pomegranates over the crumble.
  12. Serve the mason jar lid apple crumble pie warm.
