  • Surprise

I know I said I was taking 2 weeks off to redo the old posts. No, your eyes are not deceiving you, these apple pie muffins are a new recipe. Actually, taking last week off did help stir my creative juices in cooking, sort of.

  • New Plan

The old recipe posts are coming along ok. A little snag did happen though in my redoing the SEO on those old posts. I had a mini site health check done and found out I have to go back to the beginning and redo things again.

Yep, redo the posts again, starting at the beginning. Basically, I am on the right track with the SEO, but I have to go in and rearrange the structure on the posts. Like, keep all photos in the post, not after the recipe card.

A little HTML editing, I got issues with some the Amazon ads I have in a few the post. If possible add a little more photos. Which is a bit harder on some posts because most those photos are on an old broken computer that I can not open.

So I need a new plan on my optimizing my old posts. Blogging is continuous improvement. There is no end in it. It just like life, you need to continuously improve yourself so can get to another level.

  • Confession

So yes this is a new recipe post, however, the concept of this muffin isn’t a new recipe. I do have Pie Muffins posted on here. This is basically a variation of that recipe. I decided to break that recipe down into various pies, this one is the apple pie version.

The idea for the apple pie muffins came from a pie bakery. There is a guy that sells these amazing pies at the farmer’s market I like to go to. One Saturday he had the huge muffins.

I asked about the muffins and turns out, whatever pies he doesn’t sell, he chops up and put them into a muffin batter. The idea was genius. Because he did so many fruit pies, it was a mystery on what type of muffin you got. It could have been a combo of any number of pies.

When I wrote the original post for Pie Muffins,I never said what type of pies to use. I wrote it with the idea of what he did, use what you have. This weekend I went to Walmart to get light bulbs. Well, they have that discounted bakery rack, I spotted Dutch apple pies on it for $2. I decided I needed to make a batch of Apple Pie Muffins.

As I was mixing up the batter, it came to me do a post just on the single flavors of pies. So yes, I do see myself posting peach, cherry, even pecan pie muffins very soon. All depends on what I find on that discounted bakery rack!

All seriousness, I know at my mom’s house, she has leftover pie. Now that just my dad and her, my dad will have a slice, but that pie will stay a few days before finally gone. The longer it stays the longer the pie just doesn’t have that fresh taste to it.

This recipe is perfect, just crumble it up, yes crust and all and put into a batter. It bakes up nice. Plus if want you can even put a strudel like topping on it and even more delicious! It is apple pie, but in muffin form

    Oh, I feel your pain on redoing old posts. I’ve been working on that for quite awhile now. It seems like there is always something to redo…even if you’ve already redone it once. Ugh. Anyway, these muffins look delish! And I’m so ready for fall all-the-things!

    That baker is smart guy! I never would have thought of putting extra pie into a muffin. Of course we never have any extra pie, especially apple pie, around here. But, if I do, now I know what to make with it. Thanks!

    I was thinking how nicely buttermilk and brown sugar would have tasted together. That’s awesome combination.

    Using left over pie to make muffins is genius! I love the idea and you can have so many delicious combinations. Will have to try this very soon… now, if only I ever had any left over pie!! haha
