Ingredients

The correct ratio of ingredients is very important for this recipe, that's why we recommend using a kitchen scale and the oz/g measurements instead of cups.

Ingredients for the pie crust:

g full-fat cream cheese
g defatted almond flour Make sure that your almond flour is defatted in order to get the best results.
g butter
g coconut flour
g powdered erythritol Erythritol is a natural alternative to sugar that even has some health benefits.

Ingredients for the apple pie filling:

medium-sized apple
ml heavy cream
g brown erythritol
 tsp cinnamon
medium-sized apple
fl oz heavy cream
oz brown erythritol
 tsp cinnamon
medium-sized apple
cup heavy cream
tbsp brown erythritol
 tsp cinnamon

Step 1 – Preparing the pie filling

  ml heavy cream, g brown erythritol,  tsp cinnamon

  fl oz heavy cream, oz brown erythritol,  tsp cinnamon

  cup heavy cream, tbsp brown erythritol,  tsp cinnamon

Dice your apple and add it as well as the remaining ingredients for the apple pie filling into a small (non-stick) pot.

The edible part of your apple should weigh about oz/g.

Step 2

Let the apple pie filling simmer for about 15-20 minutes and stir regularly while it cooks.

Prepare the dough for the pie crust while the apple pie filling is simmering.

Your apple pie filling is ready to go once most of the liquid has evaporated and you’re left with a relatively thick mixture.

Step 3 – Preparing the pie crust

  g full-fat cream cheese, g butter

  oz full-fat cream cheese, oz butter

  cup full-fat cream cheese, tbsp butter

Add the cream cheese and butter into a bigger bowl and melt both in your microwave for about 30-60 seconds.

If you don’t have a microwave, add the butter and cream cheese into a small pot or pan and melt them on your stove.

Mix well and set the bowl aside for now.

The cream cheese tends to boil up faster than the butter (which should be avoided if possible) and it may seem that the butter hasn’t completely melted yet when you take the bowl out of your microwave.

This shouldn’t be a problem though, as the butter usually melts very fast once you start to stir and it gets incorporated into the hot cream cheese very well.

Step 4

  cup defatted almond flour, tbsp coconut flour, tbsp powdered erythritol,  tsp xanthan gum,  tsp baking powder, pinch of salt

Mix the dry ingredients in a middle-sized bowl.

Step 5

  egg yolks

Add the egg yolk to the slightly cooled butter & cream cheese mixture and stir until everything is well mixed.

Step 6

Add the dry ingredients to the butter & cream cheese mixture as well and fold them in with a spatula until you get a smooth dough.

Step 7

Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper.

Roll it out until it’s about 0.2″/5mm thick and cut out the dough using a 3″/7.5cm circle-shaped cookie cutter.

Repeat this process until no dough is left.

You can also use a glass with a similar diameter to cut out your mini pie crusts.

Step 8

Preheat your oven to 350°F/180°C.

Step 9

Grease your muffin pan with a good amount of butter and place one mini pie crust into each cup.
Carefully press the dough into place.

Add about a tbsp of the apple pie filling into each pie crust.

If you want your mini apple pies to look extra special, you can decorate them with a bit of extra dough, for example, by laying a criss-cross pattern on top (as seen in the photos).
You can also use small cookie cutters to cut out stars, flowers, or anything that comes to your mind and lay these on top of your pies.
With both variants, you should top it off with a bit of egg wash.

We only recommend this step if you want to serve these for guests (or if you would like to have extra pretty mini apple pies), as it’s quite a bit of additional work.

Step 10

Bake your mini keto apple pies for 10 minutes in your preheated oven.

The mini apple pies are ready when the edges have taken on a light golden brown color.

Step 11

Let the mini apple pies cool down a bit before enjoying them and place them in your fridge afterward.

If you want to eat your mini apple pies warm, you can reheat them in your oven (or microwave).

Storage

Cover your low carb mini apple pies with plastic wrap and store them in your fridge for up to 3 days.

You can freeze these mini pies – this way you only have to put in the work once and you’ll always have a great dessert or snack on hand!

To do this, wrap them tightly in a layer of plastic wrap and a layer of aluminum foil and put them in your freezer.

Let them thaw overnight in your fridge once you want to eat them.

If you would like to have warm mini apple pies, reheat them in your oven or microwave (they will get a bit softer in your microwave, so we prefer using the oven).
