Apple Pielettes

This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we are making Apple Pielettes, little apple pies, from Baking Chez Moi.  We are pie lovers and we were intrigued by these little desserts.


Notes:
I made a half recipe and had enough dough and filling to make 9 pies, a bonus.  I used a combination of Fuji and Gala apples for the filling.

Reviews:
These came out dry for us and I was glad I had made ice cream because it needed the moisture. I am not sure if I did not cut my apples small enough thus I got less in each or I baked them too long or a combination of both. The flavors were good just not moist. I love the idea of these little apple pies, I think they would be a warm welcome to my Thanksgiving table. I am not sure they are worth the extra work as making one big pie is much easier.  But no matter how you slice it ice cream always goes good with pie and this Cinnamon Ice Cream from David Lebovitz was a home run.  I will be making that again.

Tuesdays With Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. We don't publish the recipes, instead we encourage you to buy the book. To see what others thought go here.

  1. Your review are on point. There is more work getting the crust in the pan and the pie can use some extra moisture.

  2. Sorry to hear your pielettes turned out dry. I found that cutting the apple cubes to be around the same size of the raisins and letting them soak in the jelly/sugar juices for about 10 minutes helped. I just spooned some of the excess juices in each muffin cup before sealing the pielettes.

  9. Sorry to hear that your pielettes were dry. I did the same as Ryan by preparing the
    filling and letting it sit awhile, then using some of the delicious juices in the pie.
    Your pies look delicious even if dry.

  10. Mine were almost too juicy - it must be the apples I used. I agree with Nana, your pielettes look wonderful. And I wish I had a scoop of that cinnamon ice cream, too!

  11. LOL I definitely had a moment of "why can't I just make one big pie..." as I was playing around trying to seal the tops to the bottoms. And then they came out of the oven and I promptly changed my mind, deciding there was room in my life for these to stick around :) And David's cinnamon ice cream ? WOW well done you !!
