My husband loves apple pie, but I admit I only bake him one once or twice a year. Everything from gathering all the ingredients to peeling the apples and rolling out the pie dough just feels too labor-intensive.
Yes, there are reconstructed apple pie recipes out there to try. There’s the pie-in-a-jar version that looks pretty tasty and a little easier. Or, perhaps an apple pie bar might be a good alternative.
But this easy two-ingredient recipe might just the thing for giving him a taste of his favorite dessert beyond Thanksgiving or Christmas.
Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest ones, and Jill at Kitchen Fun with My Three Sons proves this point. Her 2-Ingredient Apple Pie Cups are a stroke of genius, and once you read the recipe, you’re going to wish you would have thought of them yourself.
One look at these little bundles of sweetness and I knew I had to try this out.
If you think these apple pie cups look a bit familiar, then you’ve got a good eye. One of the two ingredients necessary to make this recipe is refrigerated cinnamon rolls. I always have one or two cans of cinnamon rolls in the fridge for when my daughters come home from school, so I like that this apple pie recipe uses a common ingredient.
Plus, it’s great to level up the basic cinnamon rolls with a new twist.
I guess this means I don’t have an excuse anymore to deprive my husband of his beloved apple pie treat!
