    Dinky apple pies

    Serves: Makes 8
    Cooking Time: 30 mins


    • 1 x 400g tin pie apples, sliced
    • 60ml (¼ cup) maple syrup
    • 15ml (1 tbsp) cinnamon sugar
    • 10g butter
    • 50g castor sugar
    • 50g rolled oats
    • 50g pecan nuts
    • 125ml (½ cup) custard



    Preheat the oven to 180°C.


    Grease a muffin tin and fill the muffin wells with 8 cupcake holders. Fill each cupcake holder with slices of pie apples, drizzle over the maple syrup and add a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar.


    Place the butter and castor sugar in a food processor and blitz to a fine crumb. Add the rolled oats and pecan nuts and pulse a few times, until you have a coarse crumble topping. Spoon the topping over the apples and bake in the oven until cooked and golden, 15 minutes. Serve with custard.
