  • ½ cup cinnamon sugar

For the apple filling

Preparation Instructions

Serves 12

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F and spray an inverted muffin tin with cooking spray. Roll out puff pastry and using a 4" cookie cutter, cut out 12 circles.
  2. Place puff pastry on inverted muffin tin and press to form bowls. Bake until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool. Since puff pastry puffs, you may have to use an oven mitt and gently press bowls back onto muffin tin and reshape bowls.
  3. When cool enough to handle (but still slightly warm), remove bowls from muffin tin and toss in cinnamon sugar.
  4. Make the apple pie filling. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add chopped apples, sugars, lemon juice, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are soft and caramelized, about 20 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  5. Fill the churro bowls with apple pie filling and drizzle with caramel.
