Ever since we moved into our home I have been adoring everything farmhouse and when I think of Apple pie, I think of just that. A beautiful farmhouse. Today I wanted to share with you an amazing recipe that is perfect for the fall season and Thanksgiving the Farmhouse Apple Pie Cupcakes.
I know that you will just love these as much as our family does and they are relatively simple to make, which makes them so much better. If you love apple pie you have to try these babies
For this recipe, you can simply use a box of spice cake mix for the cupcake themselves. Or you can find your favorite recipe online. I opted for the boxed mix as most of us during the holiday are so rushed with everything. It just makes everything so much simpler.
What really sets this cupcake apart from others is the beautiful topping, which is again super easy to make. There are really three parts to the topping on this cupcake. You have the icing, of course, then the apple topping and lastly a beautiful wedge of cinnamon and sugar pie crust.
Below you will find a printable recipe, and I do hope that you try this out. They are SOOOOO good. If you are looking for other recipes, make sure to head on over to recipe index or check out these other apple recipes.
