Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F.
  • 2 In 10-inch skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat. Add apples; cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon and the salt. Cook about 5 minutes longer or until tender. Cool.
  • 3 Cut remaining 2 tablespoons butter into small pieces, then mix with flour, remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 cup sugar. Rub ingredients together or use fork to mash together until crumbly. Add crumbled bacon.
  • 4 Sprinkle flour lightly on work surface. Unroll crust on work surface. Using 4-inch round cutter, cut dough into 7 circles. Gently press dough rounds into muffin cups, being careful not to stretch the dough too much. Sprinkle bottom of each dough cup with cornstarch.
