Apple Pie Cupcakes recipe

  • 2 pre-made, ready to roll pie crusts or Homemade All Butter Pie Crust
  • Apple Filling
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large apples, peeled, cored and diced in to 1/4-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
Crumble Topping;
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup pecan halves, toasted
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg for egg wash
  • Whipped cream, ice cream, or caramel sauce for topping
Step1: Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.
Step2: In a medium size pan, melt butter, add apples, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring often until apples are tender, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and set pan aside to cool.
Step3: In a medium bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and pecans/walnuts add butter and mix in until crumbly.
Step4: Roll the pie crust out on a floured surface with a floured rolling pin.
Step5: Using a round cookie or biscuit cutter (approximately 3 inches diamater) cut at least 24 rounds out ( 12 rounds of each pie crust, if using store bought)
Step6: Carefully press each round into the mini-muffin pan. Use your fingers to round the ends into a pie crust. Brush egg wash to the top edges of each cupcake.
Step7: Divide the apple filling evenly onto pie crusts in muffin cups then top with the crumble topping.
Step8: Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden around the edges. Remove from oven and let cool on a cooling rack. Once cooled, use the tip of a knife to loosen the crusts from the mini muffin cups.
