Created July 12, 2012

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 crust from 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Pie Crusts (2 Count), softened as directed on box
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 4 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled

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.
  • 5
    Spoon apple mixture into each dough cup; top with bacon mixture.
  • 6
    Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until pie crust is golden brown.

  • Instead of bacon, add toasted nuts to the topping.
  • Use pears mixed with 1/4 cup of dried cranberries instead of apples.
