Rum Raisin Mini Apple Pie Bites


Let me tell you: people go wild for mini pies. There's something exciting and decadent about having your very own pie to eat in a couple bites. But at the same time, it's less than a whole slice of pie -- which means you could actually manage to eat one after Thanksgiving day dinner! These pies are the perfect holiday sweet snack -- a little spice, a little rum, a little crunch and a whole lot of fun. They also keep well and are reasonably sturdy so they make for a great holiday sweet to ship off just about anywhere -- and what could be better than getting pies by post?

What you will need

2-1/4 cups all purpose flour

8 ounces cold salted butter (2 sticks), cut into small pieces

4 tablespoons cold milk

1/2 cup dark rum

1 cup raisins

4 granny smith apples (about 2 pounds)

1 fresh lemon (for juice and zest)

2 tablespoons corn starch

1-1/2 cups packed light brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
