A lot of times apple baked goods turn out bland, so I thought, what if you use apple pie filling? I wasn’t completely sure it would work. When I tasted the sweet batter I crossed my fingers and toes hoping they would bake right. Oh boy it did and these were the best darn apple muffins I’ve ever had (and I’m a huge snob when it comes to my apple baked goods.) These may have been even better than the $4 muffins straight from the orchard.
Then you add a dollop of cream cheese frosting, and these apple pie muffins are to die for. I think I’ll be bringing these apple pie muffins to Thanksgiving this year!

I hope you enjoy these! What’s your favorite part about visiting the orchard?
