For the crust:

  • Use hand mixer to beat the brown sugar and butter together.
  • Then add the flour and salt until well combined.
  • Take one tablespoon of dough and transfer to mini muffin pocket – I use the back end of the tablespoon to press the crust into shape.

For the filling:

  • Chop apples and pecans then toss into a pan oven low medium heat with the rest of the ingredients
  • Add in 1 tbsp of arrowroot powder to give it a thicker consistency.
