Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups chopped peeled tart apples
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons apple butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons water

Directions

In small bowl, combine the apples, apple butter, sugar, apple pie spice and cinnamon.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to a 12-in. circle. Cut out 18 circles with a floured 3-in. round cutter, rerolling scraps if necessary. Press pastry onto the bottoms and up the sides of greased miniature muffin cups.
Spoon filling into each cup. Bring pastry edges over filling and twist; pinch seams to seal. Brush tops with butter.
Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
Combine confectioners' sugar and enough water to achieve a drizzling consistency. Spoon over bundles. Serve warm. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared apple butter.
