Tip: for easy cleanup, place a cookie sheet under the wire cooling rack to catch the excess frosting that will drip off of the edges.

Variations

After you try making this super easy apple dessert, you might want to get creative and try some fun variations. Here are some ideas:

  • Different pie filling – raspberry, peach, cherry, strawberry, or blueberry pie filling instead of apple
  • Cinnamon – dust the top of the top of the finished apple pie cups with cinnamon
  • Cream cheese – beat 8 tablespoons of cream cheese with 1-2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, then add a tablespoon of the mixture to the apple pie cups before adding the apples.
  • Orange – use orange flavored cinnamon rolls for an extra hint of flavor.
