Here it is! The recipe everyone has been asking for: Apple Pie cupcakes!
It was very easy to make, it just took longer than I expected. Super good, and it got great reviews at work from my co-workers!
For the apple filling: ( i adjusted the ingredients so it would make more of the filling because I had run out of it, and liked my cupcakes to have extra yummy filling!!)
3 tbsp. butter
3 tsp. cinnamon
3-4 tbsp. sugar
5 large apples, peeled, cored and diced
To make the apple filling, heat the butter a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cinnamon and sugar and cook for a minute, until the mixture begins to bubble. Lower the heat to medium and stir in the apples. Mix well. Cook until the apples are somewhat tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
While the apple mixture is cooling, use the cone method to remove a chunk from the center of each cupcake, making sure to leave a rim around the top of the cupcake. Fill the holes with the cooled apple mixture. To decorate, top each cupcake with a swirl of vanilla buttercream.
