I’m not quite sure I have professed my LOVE of apples and apple picking to the full extent yet.  I’m pretty sure this will cover it though.  My love of apple picking goes back to my childhood when I first went apple picking with my best friend and her family.  I loved the fact that I could climb the trees and not get in trouble for doing it.  I was a complete tomboy.  Apple picking came early this year in NY and for some local farms it didn’t even happen.  I took full advantage of taking Riley twice to go apple picking.  The first time we made our mini apple pies with our apples.  This time I wanted to combine my love apple pie with cupcakes and a little caramel on top for good luck.

    Love this! A great way to add flavor to a cupcake!

  • Lucy

    These look super yummy…

  • Kim aka TheQuirkyduck

    Mmmm – these look so yummy! And I’m guessing that since they’re made with apples I can classify them as fruit and not wreck my diet 😉

  • Debbie @ OtRD

    Those look amazing! Yum!

  • Jen @ Eat. Sleep. MAKE.

    ooh, these sound so yummy! Perfect for fall too 🙂

  • Donna

  • Pamela

    Oh….my…gosh. Those look amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! I will have to try them out!
    Happy Saturday from SITS:)

  • Carli

    Ok, I must admit that I had previously pinned this recipe because I must make them and soon. So glad you shared it on Saturday Sharefest!

    Any specific type of apple you recommend?

    What did you do with the cupcake middle you scooped out? Snack?

  • Alison

    That’s such a clever (and delicious idea), apple pie filling in a cupcake!!

    Stopping by from SITS Sharefest.

  • Ginny Marie

    What a great idea! They look like heaven in a cupcake wrapper. 🙂 There’s nothing like picking your own apples, too! They taste so much better than store bought apples.

  • Bethany

    These look so good! I pinned the recipe for later! 🙂

  • Lisa/Fresh Eggs Daily Farm Girl

    Your cake is gorgeous. I would love for you to come share at my Blog Fest:

    I was literally just watching an old Cupcake Wars episode and someone made an apple pie cupcake that they filled with an apple filling. I was thinking they sounded so good. Then, I found your recipe! Perfect timing. Yum!

    • Jenny Melrose

    Girls you’ll get that same feeling you probably did when you were going on the prom.
    People at the job may see you inside a different light and make you offers, your revenue should increase because
    if it. You’ve been fighting your work for some time now.


    Make sure that you are not gonna become manic and blow this glorious energy
    that is on its way into your life. You are idealistic and
    so are willing to fight to achieve everything you propose.
    A� If you might be anything like I once
    are SKEPTICAL of psychics until they convince you they’re real, the thought of blowing BIG
    bucks on an initial reading is just not in the cards.

    […] Apple Pie Cupcakes from The NY Melrose Family “They are ooey gooey in the middle, but still an individual cupcake that includes frosting!” – Jenny Blackberry Crisp from Or Whatever You Do “It is like a big pan full of summer.” – Nicole  French Silk Pie from Averie Cooks “It’s ultra rich and decadent, so beautifully chocolaty, the smoothness of the filling in contrast with the chocolate cookie crust, it’s definitely the best pie I’ve ever had or made.” – Averie Carrot Cake Cookie Bars from High Heels and Grills “Nothing too fancy, but I could eat a whole pan of them and not even feel bad about it. I hate that carrot cake is so popular around Easter, but kind of gets neglected during the rest of the year. I’m pretty sure that it should be mandated that carrot cake goodies be at the top of the list of dessert menus at restaurants. Then again, you’re talking to someone that doesn’t care much for chocolate, so take it with a grain of salt. These are just super easy, taste delicious, and are pretty hard to mess up.” – Sarah Chocolate Brownies from In Good Taste  ”My grandmother’s brownie recipe is an all time fave!” – Maris […]
