Start by cutting up eight cups of apples into small 1/2in bits.
Mix the apples with:
12 tablespoons of flour
1 1/2c of sugar
4 heaping teaspoons of cinnamon
1/4-1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
Make sure you stir everything around getting the apples nice and coated.
Unroll your first pie crust and cut several circles out. Continue this until you have enough crusts.
I found that a wide mouth mason jar ring worked perfectly.
Line each cup of your muffin tin with a tiny pie crust.
I found that pinching the edge of the dough around the top edge of the tin and making a hammock of sorts worked really well. You can then gently fill the crusts with your apple mixture and push the crusts down the rest of the way.
You should be able to fill until slightly mounded.
Then take your equally divided butter and dab on each pie.
Cover as desired with left over dough. Brush with melted butter.
Bake at 400 for 18 to 22 minutes. I started checking in on mine at 10 minutes and checked every two until they were perfect.
