I made mini apple pies with a homemade apple mixture and store bought pie crust. I baked those in the mini tins, then I made a french vanilla box cake (with vanilla pudding and sour cream), then poured it over the pies in regular sized cupcake tin (inside cupcake papers).

I baked them and then made a cream cheese frosting to decorate on top. They are interesting. I am surprised they turned out.

It's really at the top of the list right alongside hot dogs, hamburgers, Jell-o, and let's not forget ambrosia! I love apple pie - always have - always will. Not the frozen type however.
