Fall wouldn’t be fall without apples. Or pumpkins. But I am focusing on apples. At the moment. Granny Smith apples to be exact. Tart, green, firm Granny Smith apples. Recently, I baked an apple pie from scratch. Yes, from making the pie crust to peeling and slicing the apples. All of it. Oh my, what goodness that was. Why do I wait so long to make apple pie. Last year I showed you my apple pie in this post.
Well, I had a couple of apples left over from my pie. The apples that didn’t make the cut for the pie. I couldn’t let them go to waste. So, they went into The Best Ever Apple Cinnamon Muffins.
My Kitchen Helper
I do have a confession to make. I had help peeling and slicing the apples. No it wasn’t in the form of a sous chef. My daughter refuses to take on that role. It is this little gem of a kitchen gadget. An apple peeler that will also slice and core the apple. I just love kitchen gadgets.
I found this little gem at World Market for $10.00. Bargain, right. It works fabulously.
The apple is inserted onto the prongs and then you turn the handle. The apple is slowly peeled and then sliced into perfect rings.
I then sliced the rings into small chunks before adding to my muffin mixture.
The Recipe for The Best Ever Apple Cinnamon Muffins
Here’s the recipe for the Best Ever Apple Cinnamon Muffins Ever. Enjoy.
With the help of my apple peeler gadget, I will be making the Best Ever Apple Cinnamon Muffins more often. They are perfect for breakfast or a mid morning snack. Plus being very portable, they are great in a lunch box. It’s the little things that make me jump for joy.
Do you have any kitchen gadgets that substitute for a sous chef?
