  • Oatmeal Cookie Crust:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 12 tablespoons butter, softened
  • Homemade Apple Filling Option:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3–4 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced into 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Canned Apple Filling Option:
  • 1 can apple pie filling
  • Caramel topping (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 24-cup mini-muffin tin.
  • In a medium-sized pan, melt butter, add apples, spices, brown sugar, and 3 tablespoons of water. Cook over medium-high heat for 4-6 minutes or until apples are slightly softened.
  • In a small dish, combine cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of water. Add to the pan while stirring and continue to cook until apples are tender and the filling is thickened, about 4-5 minutes. Allow it to cool.
  • Combine flour, oats, and brown sugar in a large bowl. Cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Place a heaping tablespoon of the crust mixture into a mini muffin cup. Press along the bottom and sides to make a “cup”. There will be crust mixture left over.
  • Place about 1 tablespoon of apple filling in the crust. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of the remaining crust mixture on top of the filling.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, for about 15 to 20 minutes. Allow them to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Use a knife to loosen them from the pan, and they should pop right out.
  • Drizzle with caramel topping if desired.
