A Yummy "Thanksgiving" Treat

And yes . . . if you're wondering . . . I "do" make "NON-compliant" treats and meals for the holidays sometimes. I don't always live by the rules of "compliant" eating.

And this yummy little treat is great for "Thanksgiving" or in this case . . .

Every month I also supply a "birthday" cake or cupcakes for anyone that has a birthday at my mom's senior housing complex

And this month for November . . . it's "Apple Pie Cupcakes with Vanilla frosting and Cinnamon Sprinkled on top" . . .

So here we go . . .

"NON-Compliant" version

INGREDIENTS: 24 cupcakes

1 - box yellow cake mix (follow the direction for baking the cupcakes)

( I make them healthier with our farm fresh eggs and organic extra virgin olive oil)

1 - large can of organic apple pie filling (healthy version - NO artificial sweeteners)


1 - 12 oz container of vanilla frosting

A pinch of cinnamon for a topping ( I use Ceylon Cinnamon due to the medicinal factors)


Bake the cupcake according to the directions on the box

In a medium saucepan - put the apple pie filling and warm it until the apples are soft

Then remove the pie filling and place it in a blender

Puree' the pie filling

When cupcakes are cool - take a paring knife and cut a 1 inch wide cone-shaped piece from the top of each cupcake ( discard the pieces of cake)

Fill the cavity of the cupcake with apple filling

Then frost the top of the cupcake and sprinkle with cinnamon

Yummy, yummy in my tummy.

So "Happy birthday" to all you November babies!!!
