My Bubby Czarna z”l, whom I called Bubby Bagel, made the best apple pie in the entire world. This is an adapted version, made in mini format. These freeze beautifully.
Yields 10 portions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix together apples, sugar, lemon juice and tapioca starch. Divide evenly into three- to three- and- a- half-inch ramekins.
Mix together all dough ingredients and flatten dough on floured Gefen Parchment with your hands (you don’t need a rolling pin – this dough is fabulous to work with). Use an extra ramekin to cut out 10 circles of dough. Place over each apple filling. Cut an X in the middle of each pie, making sure to push apart the dough a bit – this allows moisture to escape.
Mix together cinnamon and brown sugar. Sprinkle on top of each pie.
Bake for about 40 minutes. Enjoy warm or cool – these are delicious topped with ice cream.
