Ingredients

  • APPLE CUPCAKES
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large baking apples, peeled, cored and diced into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Juice from half a lemon
  • 1 can (8 counts) refrigerated cinnamon roll dough
  • Whipped cream, ice cream, or caramel sauce for topping
  • CRUMBLE TOPPING
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and sprinkle the baking dish with a culinary spray.
  • Peel apples, cut into cubes.
  • Melt the butter in a pan. Add chopped apples and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring with a spatula until the apples are soft. Then add cinnamon, brown sugar and salt. Stir, cook another 2 minutes. Then pour in freshly squeezed lemon juice, mix again and set aside the pan.
  • Combine flour, brown sugar, and chopped nuts in a deep bowl. Add softened butter and rub the mixture with your fingers until crumbly.
  • Divide the finished cinnamon dough into 7-8 rolls and line your shapes.
  • Divide the apples evenly over all the shapes, then the nut crumbs. Press the crumb lightly with your fingers.
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes or until the edges of the dough are lightly browned.
  • Chill, garnish with whipped cream and caramel topping and enjoy!

Notes

  • I prefer to use Granny Smith apples in this recipe, as they are great for baking or roasting.
  • For a more spicy taste, add a pinch of nutmeg to the apples.
