You can easily swap out the apple pie filling with any other pie filling. You may want to leave out the cinnamon and caramel too depending on the pie filling you choose.

 

How to make Mini Caramel Apple Pies:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).

 

On a lightly floured surface, unroll one pie crust and with a knife, trace around a 4-7/8 inch upside-down foil tart tin. You should get 3 circles out of one crust. Click for 4-7/8 inch foil tart tins.

Re-roll the crust and cut out 2 more circles. These will probably be thinner than the first 3 circles.

Repeat steps 2 and 3 with the other three rolls of pie crust. You should have 20 circles when finished.

Choose the 10 thickest circles and roll them larger to increase their size by about 1/3.

Set the other 10 circles aside for the tops of the pies. Do not roll them larger.

 

In a large bowl, mix the pie filling with the cinnamon and caramel topping until well combined.

Place the remaining 10 circles of pie crust on top of the pies. Press the edges with a fork to seal. You could also add extra shapes cut out from the left-over pie dough at this point if you want to, but if you wrap them with ribbons and forks the shapes may not be seen.
