Apple Pie in a Cup

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

There are many things I crave in the fall. Most of all I crave anything with cinnamon. This Apple Pie in a Cup was created when I owned the shop and I wanted to serve a hot apple cider but take it up a notch. It’s made by boiling down a simple syrup with plenty of cinnamon and adding it to the hot apple cider. Finish it off with whipped cream and another sprinkle of cinnamon. It tastes just like apple pie!

To make the simple syrup, add 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup water into a small saucepan. Bring to a low boil and add 1 tablespoon cinnamon. Continue to cook on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes. Take off the heat and let it cool slightly.

You can use the syrup immediately. Just add 1 tablespoon to an 8 oz cup of hot apple cider and stir. Then top with whipped cream and sprinkle some cinnamon on top.
