How to make Graham Apple Cups

Last night, I was pushed to recreate a Thankgiving favourite so I could serve a nice, delicious dessert for the kids to enjoy on our Family Thanksgiving dinner.

The kids actually requested for a milkshake but some of the ingredients were not available at the supermarket, so I decided to make a simpler version of Apple pie using crushed Grahams for the crust and top.

I received a request for the recipe, so I thought I’d share it on the blog instead, in case there are more families out there who’d like to make the same.

By the way, it’s delicious!

Here you go:

Ingredients: (Makes 10 small Ramekins)

3-4 Ripe Apples , sliced into small pieces.
2 Bars of Unsalted Butter
2 packs of Crushed Grahams
3 TBSP All Purpose Flour
1/4 C Water
1/2 C White Sugar
1/2 C Brown Sugar

How to make your crust and top:

1. Melt 1 bar of butter, pour into a mixing bowl.
2. Add your crushed grahams into your butter and mix well.
3. Using a spoon, put some graham into your ramekins and press it so it will make a firm crust. Leave some for the toppings.
4. Chill.

How to make your sauce:

1. Melt 1 stick of butter in a sauce pan.
2. Once the butter is ready, add the water, flour, and sugars, and mix well until the grains have dissolved well into the butter.

How to prepare your Apple Cups for baking:

1. Get your chilled ramekins and put sliced apples in them.
2. Pour in your sauce.
3. Put your crust mix on top and smoothen.

How to bake:

1. Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees.
2. Put in your ramekins and bake for 10 – 15 minutes.
3. Serve!

Best served chilled!

So easy and so simple, yeah? Definitely something you can do with the kids in the kitchen and enjoy eating afterwards. I got the sauce recipe from an apple pie recipe called “Apple Pie by Grandma Ople” at allrecipes.com , but altered the dough part because I didn’t have the pastry to use. Kids love Grahams anyway, so they enjoyed the lot.

Plus, the Vanilla Ice Cream on the side was a great match!

Original recipe says you can serve hot and cold, but we liked this one best served cold.

Go ahead, try it with your kids. Let me know how yours turns out. Enjoy!

  1. HEYYYY! Really easy vs actually making mini apple pies hahaha! Any idea how long I should pop them in an airfryer? I wanna make a small batch and I find it cumbersome to clean up a big oven, and heat up the whole kitchen with said oven hahaha

  2. This is so nice!! My mom always reminds me to eat apples so this is a creative and yummy way to do so! I’ll save this for recipe ideas 🥰 i’m glad the ingredients are easily available too!

  3. Those are too adorable! I love the cute factor of the single-serve size, and I love that I can use that crust as a base for almost any kind of sweet dessert.
