Personal Apple Pie

I am so excited for Thanksgiving next week because I get to see my family and eat delicious food and take more time to reflect on my blessings and what I am grateful for. My favorite Thanksgiving dish is without a doubt PIE!!

At my family’s Thanksgiving, we always have so many different pies. Pretty much every kind you could think of and then more - apple, pumpkin, cherry, French silk, pecan, Oreo… I always have a slice of every single kind! I have a big family in Minnesota (my mom has 6 siblings and I have 17 cousins on her side), so we make and enjoy a lot of food. We always host at my house, which is busy, but fun.

This week, I will be sharing some tasty, simple, and healthy Thanksgiving recipes with you as a fun holiday “pre-game” to get us in the Thanksgiving mood. Of course I had to start with pie because that is my favorite part! I made a personal apple pie for breakfast and it was amazing!

This pie filling is pretty flexible and you can customize it to your liking! This recipe is just what I used and it was rather experimental, but it worked and tasted great. The nuts and nut butter are not necessary, so if you have a nut allergy you can leave them out or substitute with seeds and seed butter. You could also likely use water instead of apple cider in the dough, but I wanted a bit more apple flavor so I used the cider.

Every bite of this was so yummy!




¼ cup all purpose flour

½ tbsp olive oil

Splash of vanilla

Dash of salt

Dash of cinnamon

Drizzle of honey

1 tbsp apple cider

Extra flour to sprinkle

Apple Pie Filling:

1 chopped apple

¼ tsp lemon juice

¼ tsp olive oil

2-3 tbsp slivered almonds

1-2 tbsp almond butter

1 tbsp powdered peanut butter or flour to thicken

1-2 tbsp apple cider

Dash of salt

Splash of vanilla

Drizzle of honey

Cinnamon and nutmeg to taste


To make the dough:

1. Preheat oven to 350 F and lightly grease a small oven-safe dish or ramekin

2. Mix flour, olive oil, vanilla, salt and cinnamon, and honey in a bowl.

3. Add in 1 tbsp apple cider while stirring until a dough forms.

4. Sprinkle flour on a cutting board or other flat surface and roll out the dough, then cut into strips. Set aside.

5. In a separate bowl, mix the pie filling ingredients.

6. Add the filling mixture to the ramekin, and place the dough strips on top in a lattice pattern.

7. Bake for 25-30 minutes (the dough should be a bit crispy), then let cool.

Enjoy your personal pie!! I bet it would taste great with some ice cream or Greek yogurt too!
