It’s almost Thanksgiving!!! And to match it, I decided to make something daring……….Apple Pie Muffins. They were originally supposed to be cupcakes, but later on, they turned into muffins. This recipe was inspired by Hoosier Homemade , though I did change a few things. For this recipe, I had to use apples. Well, I got two GIANT apples! I promise you, those apples outgrew all the other apples! I mean one apple made 2 cups, so I only used one apple. I think one of the benefits of this recipe is the Applesauce. While the muffins were baking, I could not resist eating the Applesauce. I still have about half the jar left, so I plan on finishing it maybe today! Well, I have to stop blabbering and write down this recipe:
Yield- 11 standard-sized muffins
3 tablespoons of butter,softened
2 cups of peeled and diced apples.
