Cinnamon Apple Pie Cups – Easy and Fun Treats

Holy moly, these Cinnamon Apple Pie Cups are amazing. I say this fully knowing that I make them all the time and I STILL can’t get over how good they are. They’re more like an addiction in my house and after you make them one time, I think you’re going to agree. 

Cinnamon Apple Pie Cups

It’s safe to say that we try to find a healthy balance between sweets and natural in our house but these apple pie cups are my weakness. And since they take just three simple ingredients to make, I have no trouble whipping these up at the drop of a hat. 

You might actually be able to help us solve a simple debate about this apple pie treats that we have going on in our house. Are they a breakfast food or a dessert or is there a way to classify them as both? I tend to think of them as a delicious breakfast recipe but the kids are adamant that they’re more like a dessert. (Honestly, I’ll eat them any time of the day but it’s just fun to see what others classify this tasty treat as!) 

Can you use real apples for this simple apple recipe?

You totally can. If you want to slice up real apples and use them instead of canned apple pie filling, go for it. I’m sure it would have an amazing taste and flavor and be a hit!

I simply use the apple pie filling because it cuts down on a lot of time and effort and really does taste amazing, too. Either way is totally a win-win.

What other toppings can you add to these cinnamon apple pie cups

If you’re looking for something else to add as a topping rather than the glaze from the cinnamon rolls, you can try so many other toppings. Whipped cream, cinnamon and sugar, and even a small scoop of ice cream are always a good choice! Change it up each time to change up the taste easily, too!
