First of all, I forgot to take pictures of the final product! And I am not happy about it. It looked and tasted so wonderful, I missed that final picture. At the same time, because it looked and tasted so wonderful, we just devoured these Apple pie cups! Well, you get the idea. So let’s move on!
I love to use wonton wrappers as they are so versatile. You can make savory as well as sweet dishes using these babies. They come in very handy when you are pressed for time or you just want something to grab and go. So when I am in the mood for pie and don’t want to make pie crust or to save on fat and calories content of the pie crust, I go for wonton wrappers. And so far, they haven’t disappointed me a bit. So on to these delicious pie cups,
Here’s how I made it.
Apple Pie Cups
12 wonton wrappers
2 green apples, cored and cubed
½ cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp cinnamon powder
½ tsp cardamom powder
½ tsp nutmeg powder
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
Heat butter in the skillet
Add brown sugar and slowly caramelize the sugar.
Add cubed apples in lemon juice, all the spices and cook till apples are tender and moisture evaporates.
Brush 12 muffin cup pan with butter.
Brush 12 wonon wrappers with butter and arrange them in the muffin pan.
Divide apple mixture equally into muffin cups.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until the edges of wrappers are brown.

Note: you can top the apple cubes with strips of wonton wrappers or your favourite crumble topping before baking.
