I love the Fall! It smells so crisp and delicious outside and it makes me want to fill my house with the smell of cinnamon and warm apples. So that’s exactly what we decided to do this weekend. What better way to bring in the comforting smell of apples and cinnamon than to make these delicious cupcakes!? I thought it would be fun to do a little ‘pie-cycling’ for our recipe. I started with this already-delicious Dutch Apple Pie from Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pies and Reddi-wip® that I got at WalMart.  20151027_12561620151024_215814   DSC_1413 Dutch-Apple-Pie-Cupcakes (5) I popped the pie into the oven, according to the directions on the back, but I left the streusel off so I could sprinkle it on top of the cupcake later. So I baked the streusel separately until it was golden brown, on a cookie sheet. Dutch-Apple-Pie-Cupcakes (1) While the pie was baking, I made some Spice cupcakes. I just used a boxed Spice Cake mix and cooked according to package directions. Dutch-Apple-Pie-Cupcakes (4) When the cupcakes and the pie were done. I used my medicine cup to carve a hole out of the top of each cupcake. Dutch-Apple-Pie-Cupcakes (10) I pulled the top off of each one and set them aside.

Dutch-Apple-Pie-Cupcakes (14) Then I topped each cupcake with the leftover piece of cake, so I would have a solid base for my Reddi-wip® topping.

Dutch-Apple-Pie-Cupcakes Now that I had all these delicious cupcakes on my hands, I wanted to share them. Because, besides the crisp Fall air, nothing helps me get into a Thanksgiving mood more than serving others. It warms you up from the inside out! I also want my children to learn the best way to be happy is by sharing and serving others. So we made another delicious Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pie and a cute pie plate to share with our neighbors. DSC_1407 Here’s what you need for your pie plate…

  1. A white pie plate
  2. stencil
  3. Oil-based sharpie
  4. Finger nail polish remover
  5. rubbing alcohol
  6. cotton swabs
  7. Q-Tips

DSC_1523 First wipe your pie plate down with rubbing alcohol to get rid of any debris or oils. DSC_1525 I used sticker stencils and wrote out #ShareTheJoyOfPie and Make a Pie, Pass it on! I’m hoping my neighbors will enjoy their pie and cupcakes and then make another to pass on to someone else. Wouldn’t that be cool if your whole neighborhood had received a pie or treat in this cute dish? Or if you got it back from someone one day? DSC_1526 Then I used my oil-based sharpie to fill in each stencil. Be careful to make sure that each sticker is pushed down so the sharpie doesn’t bleed underneath, but if it does, you can fix your mistakes with fingernail polish remover and a Q-Tip. DSC_1528DSC_1529 Once you’re done. Put your pie plate on top of a cookie sheet and in your oven. Then set your oven to 450 degrees and let the pie plate and oven heat up together. After it reaches 450 degrees, bake for 30 minutes, turn off oven and let them cool down together. DSC_1530 Once it cools, you’ll have a cute pie plate that you can pass on to someone and #ShareTheJoyOfPie!
