Ingredients
  • 1 21 ounce can apple pie filling (I use Duncan Hines Original Country Apple Pie Filling)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup nut pieces Optional
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Add the vanilla extract, buttermilk, melted butter and eggs. Mix well with a spoon.
  2. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin, add about 1/4 cup batter to each cup. Drop about 1 tablespoon of the apple pie filling into the batter. Sprinkle nuts on top. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven 25 to 30 minutes until brown on top.
Recipe Notes

You can make these with about any kind of pie filling. They keep well and easily reheat in the microwave. I refrigerate any leftover. We love the filling “oozing” out of the muffins. You could add raisins along with the nuts and you could sprinkle a little brown sugar and cinnamon on top before baking.
