Apple Pie Sundaes in Pie Crust Bowls

Apple butter is wonderful on biscuits, warm toast and buttery scones. But have you tried it on vanilla ice cream? When served in a pie crust bowl, you have an elegantly deconstructed apple pie! A little sprinkle of flaky sea salt puts this simple, yet sophisticated dessert over the top. 

Apple Pie Sundaes in Pie Crust Bowls

  • Premium Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
  • Overnight Apple Butter with Bourbon & Vanilla Bean (recipe HERE) or your own
  • Store bought or homemade pie crust
  • Regular size muffin tin
  • Cinnamon sugar
  • Flaky sea salt (like Fleur de Sel)

To make the pie crust bowls:

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.   Roll pie dough out to 1/8" thick.  Use the rim of a drinking glass or biscuit cutter to cut into 3/5" - 4" rounds.

2.  Flip muffin tin over.  Form dough circles around each muffin cup.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Bake for 7-8 minutes, until golden brown.

3. Remove crusts from pan and allow to cool on a wire rack.

To make the sundaes:

Place a large scoop of vanilla ice cream inside the pie crust bowl.  Top with apple butter.  Sprinkle with just a pinch of sea salt.
