that is baked to perfection surrounding tender, spiced apple slices! A scoop of vanilla ice cream wouldn’t hurt either! 😉 You can make your Apple Pie for Two as fancy or simple as you like, I just felt like playing with my mini cutters and making these cute little desserts even cuter!

In all honesty, this recipe should be considered 4 servings! You could technically share one of the pies, but who really wants to do that, right? I’m just warning you ahead of time because the nutritional data may shock you. But it’s totally worth it!!!

Notes: {contains affiliate links}

  • I used (2) 4-inch (8-ounce) Porcelain Ramekins.
  • I used these Leaves Cookie Stamps.
  • I used Granny Smith apples, but you could also use Golden Delicious. Both are tart, so you might want to mix with a sweeter Gala or Rome apple. (one of each)
  • Yes, I do still use my Apple Peeler, Corer, Slicer to get perfectly sliced apples! Mine is actually an old Pampered Chef version, but this one looks much nicer without having to clamp it down to the counter top.
  • I did not use all of the dough for my two pies, but I didn’t want to come up short. Bake additional shapes to top with jam or wrap and freeze for later.

Some additional Desserts for Two for you to try:

Are you ready for fall? It will not be fall until October or maybe even November here in Arizona but I was ready for some apples and cinnamon. Nope, not ready for pumpkin. 😉

Enjoy!!
