Mini Apple Pie Cups

November 5, 2011

Kristin from A Simply Klassic Home has an amazing blog.  I first found Kristin when she wrote the blog Betty Crocker Wannabe.  She has an incredible knack for crafts, decorating and cooking!  Not only does she blog about making her house a home, but she is also a mom of two adoptive children and a blog designer!  If you are in need of getting your blog designed please keep her in mind!

Ingredients:

3 small or 2 large apples
3/4 cup white or brown sugar
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or apple pie spice or just cinnamon would do)
2 1/2 tbsp flour
1/2 cup apple juice
1 can refrigerated biscuit dough
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon, or pumpkin pie or apple pie spice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1.  Peel, Core and Dice your apples.  I generally yield about 2 cups of diced apples.

2.  Heat a saucepan over medium heat.  Add apples, cinnamon and sugar.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until boiling.  Mix flour and apple juice together and stir with a fork or whisk until there are no lumps.  Add to the apples to help thicken.  Cover, reduce head, and simmer for about 20 minutes.  Uncover the apples and remove from heat.  Let cool for 20 minutes.

3.  Mix 3 tablespoons sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon or spice together and set aside.  Grease eight muffin cups in a pan.  Roll or press the dough on a cutting board and then press into muffin cups.  Dust with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
