My roommate BB was not having a good weekend, and I wanted to bake something for her. We’d had brownies twice in the past week. I considered a cake, but didn’t know if the house we’re living in had cake pans. The house did, however, have a muffin tin.

Get your umbrellas. It’s a brainstorm, y’all!

I chopped apples and added them to the ingredients in my mom’s apple pie filling recipe: 1/3 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, a bit of butter. They hung out on the stove while I rolled out store bought dough (lazy foodie alert), cut out circles, and situated them in the muffin tin. Then, I filled the dough cups with filling and made a quick lattice crust with the small amount of dough I had left. Popped those suckers in the oven at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes and presto!

They were total deliciousness. And only 125 calories each (I did the math)!
