Personal Apple Pie Cups for When You Don't Want to Share

Original post and photos by Susanna Tuan on Spoon University - UChicago.


This recipe will fulfill your craving for apple pie without the effort and commitment (or the budget) of making the whole pie. An apple pie cup consists of toasted and buttered pecans at the bottom, layered with a warm apple pie filling and topped with your favorite rendition of whipped cream. Every spoonful is packed with the flavors of salty pecan, honey apple and sugary sweet whipped cream. And the best part is: you don't have to share.

Difficulty level: Easy

Prep time: 15 minutes
