Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all topping ingredients in the bowl of the food processor and pulse a few times until well blended(or mix thoroughly by hand).
  2. Peel and dice apples. Saute in a medium pan over medium heat, with butter. Cook until nearly soft. Add brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix cornstarch and water and pour into the simmering apple mixture. Cook, while stirring until well thickened. Turn off heat and allow to cook slightly.
  3. Roll out the chilled pie crust and cut into circles. Be sure to cut one then double check that the circle size works for the size of your muffin pan. Place circles in greased muffin tin, being sure not to pierce holes in the bottom. You can use mini muffin tins for bite sized treats or regular for something more substantial. Spoon filling into dough cups, all the way to the top.
  4. Place one spoon full of topping over that. Press the topping gently so the crumbs don’t fall off of the pies. Bakes pies at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes then serve warm. Enjoy!
  5. Note:.
  6. If in a rush use canned pie filling.

These are delicious but I had some issues with the recipe. I started with too much apple(my 6-8 apples were LARGE), therefore ran out of crust. I feel like I should note that if you use pre-made crust you may prefer to roll it out a little thinner or it becomes too crusty for such a small portion of apple once in its individual sizes. I used muffin tins for mine and had a hard time imagining how anyone got this into mini-muffin sizes, also maybe I didn't dice my apples small enough?

These are wonderful! Had to run out and get some oatmeal, I haven't had any on hand for sooo long! The topping is to die for! It all just worked out beautifully. I used my own crust(I was feeling spry hehe) Thank you Sharon for sharing such a wonderful dessert!
