Apple Surprise Mini Pies


  • 1 3/4 C. (1 package) Graham Crackers
  • 1/3 C. butter, melted
  • 24 oz. (3 pkg) Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 3/4 C. sweetened condensed milk
  • 2/3 C. white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 cans apple pie filling
  • 2 Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts


  1. Place graham crackers in ziploc bag and crush.
  2. Pour melted butter into baggie with graham crackers and shake to mix well. Place 2 heaping tablespoons of graham cracker mixture into bottom of a half pint jar and carefully spread around.
  3. For cheesecake layer, beat cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add sugar, eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice and mix well. Place 1/3 c. of cream cheese mixture into each jar.
  4. Fill jars to the top with apple pie filling (about 1/2 C).
  5. Unroll pie crust. Find a drinking glass or round cookie cutter that is about 1/2? larger than your jar lid and cut out 4 circles. Re-roll remaing dough and cut out 2 more circles. Repeat with other pie crust. If desired, cut small slits or a little shape in the middle of your crust.
  6. Place one cutout crust on each jar and pinch edges to resemble a pie crust. Finish with a light dusting of white sugar.
  7. Place on a cookie sheet (just in case any of them leak, you don’t want to clean that out of your oven!) and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes until pie crusts are browned.
  8. Remove from oven. Tie a small ribbon around each jar, if desired, and serve.
