Apple-Cranberry Pot Pies

These one-crust wonders pack a delicious sweet-tart punch.

December 7, 2012

This sweet-tart take on apple pie only has one crust, so it’s a little less calorie laden. If you have any leftover cranberry sauce, this is a great way to use it.


  • 1 egg white, beaten slightly
  • Puff pastry
  • ½ cup whole berry cranberry sauce (homemade or purchased)
  • 1 20-ounce can apple pie filling (or make your own)


1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a large bowl, mix together the apple pie filling and cranberry sauce. Fill 6 ramekins with apple-cranberry mixture.

2. Roll out the puff pastry slightly. Cut out 6 4-inch squares. Position each square over a ramekin so the points hang over the edge. Brush with egg white.

3. Bake until golden and puffed, about 20 minutes.
