Apple Cups Served With Maple Toffee Sauce.
Dessert recipe with apple filling inside a pastry shell. Then served with a maple toffee sauce. Baked to perfection.
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 3 Braeburn apples peeled, cored, and diced
- 3 Golden Delicious apples peeled, cored, and diced
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 17.3-ounce package frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1 teaspoon maple flavoring
In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add apples, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Cook, stirring often, until apples are tender, approximately 5 minutes. Add flour, stirring until thickened. Remove from heat, and let cool for 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375°. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
On a lightly floured surface, unroll 1 sheet puff pastry. With a rolling pin, smooth any seams. Using a 3 and 1/2-inch round cutter, cut 6 rounds per sheet. Repeat with remaining puff pastry. Press rounds into bottoms and up sides of muffin cups.
Bake until puffed and golden, approximately 6 minutes. Remove from oven. Using the back of a spoon, press down puffed bottoms of cups. Spoon apple mixture into cups.
Bake until golden brown, approximately 6 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
