Apple Pie Cupcakes with pie crust

You will find all the wonderful flavors of an apple pie in these Apple Pie Cupcakes with brown sugar cinnamon frosting. This recipe is super simple since we used a store bought cake mix and also store bought pie filling.
We have been going a bit overboard with apple recipes this past week. My kiddos start school really early this year and since back to school always has fall on my mind, I have been baking up a storm. I grew up in upstate NY and school never started until the Wednesday after Labor Day. I really am not liking this new schedule the school has decided on. I had a nice mid August summer vacation planned and these new dates really messed with all of that.

My kiddos really enjoyed the Apple Pie Fries I shared on Wednesday. They actually requested that I make them again today. When I mentioned apple pie cupcakes, they quickly agreed that cupcakes would make for a great evening dessert.
