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.
