Apple Pie Muffins

Yesterday in my "Blue & Mosaic Monday" post I featured my cheese dome and I had a few Apple Pie Muffins in the picture. I said I would post the recipe today. And that's what I am doing. First, I have to give my mom credit for the recipe. I don't know where she found it but, I am glad she did. I LOVE these muffins! They are just perfect. Not too sweet.

Apple Pie Muffins (makes about 2 dozen if you use cupcake tins)


1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup buttermilk or sour milk
2 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups shredded apples (about 4 medium sized ones)
1 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp. apple pie spice (or pumpkin pie spice)

1 cup brown sugar
6 T flour
4 T soft butter
2/3 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1) prep muffin tins (either use paper cups or spray)

2) In large bowl beat butter, sugar, buttermilk, eggs ans vanilla until smooth

3) In different bowl, mix the flour, salt and apple pie spice

4.) Slowly mix both bowls together.

5) Stir in raisins, apples and nuts.

6) Spoon into muffin tins about 2/3 full

7) Add 1 T of the topping mix to each muffin.

Bake 55-60 minutes.
