Ingredients:

  • 10 medium unpeeled Fuji apples, cored and cut into ½-inch chunks (about 8 cups)
  • 2 Tbsp crystallized ginger, minced
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp light brown sugar
  • 6 tsp all-purpose flour
  • 7 oz store-bought or homemade pie dough
  • 2 large egg whites, beaten

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375?F. Combine apples, ginger, lemon juice, sugar, and 5 tsp flour in a mixing bowl; evenly divide between eight (8-ounce) ramekins.
  2. Lightly dust a rolling pin and work surface with remaining 1 tsp flour. Roll dough out to about 1/8-inch wide strips; then cut the strips into 4-inch lengths (64 strips of dough).
  3. Using 8 strips of dough for each mini-pie, create a crisscross pattern across the top of each ramekin. Gently press ends of the dough strips into the rim of the ramekin.
  4. Lightly brush dough with beaten egg whites. Bake until dough is golden brown and fruit is bubbling and just tender, 30 minutes.
