Sometimes stress can be a good thing. Your thinking What? Yes, you read that right, sometimes stress, at least for me, can create a great recipe. I admit I had a case of PMS, and bought an apple pie, well was it was on sale at the store, and NEVER shop hungry and PMS is all I will say. Anyway, I had a small sliver and then, I had a whole pie. “What am I supposed to do with this?” I thought. I could take to work, but, I really didn’t feel like it.

There is a farmer’s market here in Cleveland I like to go to. There is a pie maker in this market, one year he made pie muffins, he explained he would put all the pies that didn’t sell into a muffin batter. It was ok, but you never knew what the flavor was.

I was thinking about that when I decided to do this, I got one pie, I bet it would work with just one pie, not a variety like he does. So I went about creating my own pie muffins, with the left over apple pie. I did a basic muffin added it, baked them and then took them to work. People loved them. The idea I was told was genius.
