  • 15 mins Ready In 30 mins Author: Audrey @ Unconventional Baker Makes: 12 mini pies Ingredients Crust Ingredients: ½ cup rice flour (brown or white) ½ cup almond flour 4 tbsp almond butter 2 tbsp maple syrup 1 tsp pure vanilla extract ½ tsp pure orange extract ¼ tsp salt Mince Filling Ingredients: ⅓ cup apricot jam (I used homemade; can use a store-bought fruit-sweetened jam instead) ⅓ cup dried fruit mix (mostly raisins, but can include dried cherries, dried currants, dried cranberries, etc.) 1 tbsp maple syrup 1 tsp pure vanilla extract ½ tsp pure orange extract ½ tsp cinnamon ¼ tsp of each: nutmeg, cloves, ground ginger ¼ tsp salt Optional Topping: dairy-Free coconut milk powder for dusting. Instructions Preheat oven to 350F. Oil a mini-muffin pan and set aside. Process all crust ingredients in a food processor into a uniform sticky mixture. Remove a quarter of the mixture and set aside. Grab a bit less than a tablespoon's-worth of the remaining mixture with your hands and roll into a little ball, then flatten into a disk, place inside one of the muffin tray cups and shape into a crust along the base and edges with your fingers. Repeat with remaining mixture until all the cups are lined. Use a fork to press in a ribbed edge all around the top of each crust (optional). Process all mince filling ingredients into a uniform mixture in a food processor. Spoon about 1 tsp of the mixture into each mini-pie (you should have about 1-2 tbsp remaining as extra as backup). Roll out the remaining tiny bit of crust dough remaining between two sheets of parchment into a 1/16" thickness (or even a bit thinner). Use a tiny cookie cutter to make little star cutouts (or any other shape -- I used the tiny cutters from my linzer cookie set). Top each pie with a star, gather any remaining dough and repeat until you have enough to top each mini pie. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 15 mins Cool completely on a wire rack, dust with dairy-free coconut milk powder (optional) and enjoy! 3.5.3208
