Mini Apple Cobblers

Pampered Chef square brownie pan

The house smells amazing!

Ingredients

  • 1 pre-made pie crust
  • 1 egg
  • 6 medium to large apples of 3-4 different varieties (if possible)
  • apple pie spice
  • ground cinnamon   (If you don’t have apple pie spice, cinnamon and a pinch of ground cloves will do)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 5 tablespoons of melted butter

Preheat the oven to 375. Flour the bottom of a muffin tin.

Place a piece of pie crust in the bottom of each cup so it covers the bottom and comes up the sides about halfway

Mix together sliced and peeled apples, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, 1 teaspoon of salt, and apple pie spice until the apples are coated. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes.

Topping

Aldi has a really good apple cobbler topping for 99 cents. But, if you don’t have that, in a separate bowl mix together flour, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and about a tablespoon of cinnamon.  Mix in the egg until blended.

Final Steps

Pour the apples into each muffin cup until they are filled to the top with apples. You may have to cut them smaller if they don’t fit in very well. (I ended up having to do this). I took a mini ice-cream scooper or a spoon and scooped one heaping scoop or the topping onto each cup.

Melt the butter and pour over the top of each one.

Put in the oven for about 30 minutes covered in foil.

Take off for the last 5 minutes of baking so the topping gets crispy!

That’s it! Enjoy with vanilla ice-cream. 🙂

It’s only September 1st and I’m already in the mood for fall. The scent of nutmeg and cinnamon wafting through the house is one of my favorite things! Here is a recipe I tried for mini pumpkin pies. They can be served with ice cream, whipped cream, or eaten by themselves. If you love pumpkin pie, then you will love these. They would be great to take to work in your lunch or for small hands because of their miniature size. They are crustless and topped with cinnamon sugar.
