    Thank you for your post, I was sad that my family was not able to make it to the apple orchard this year. Instead I ended up buying one of the bags and using that to do some baking. This years apple treat was apple /oatmeal cookies..I think they would have done better if I put in some walnuts though. Either way they were a good treat to add to the pile of recipies:)

    There is nothing that says Fall like a nice warm apple pie. I have found a great way to make this all time favorite even better. Personal peices of pie:) All you do is make your pie as normal but instead of it getting put inot a pan to bake you simply put the shell and stuffing into a cupcake pan. Only 6 are allowed at a time for spill over. This way there is no cutting and everyone gets just the right size/hand held peice of apple pie:)

    Kate, read your guest post, and these sound delicious! Apple pie is one of my favorite autumn desserts, and it would be scrumptious in a cakey muffin!

    Hi, Kate. I missed my daily browsing for a while (celebrating so many family birthdays over here :), and I’m happy to be back and discover your delicious recipe. These muffins look fantastic! One question – have you ever try to add nutmeg to apple filling?
