Step 1: Making Baking Tin

I couldn't find a baking tin that was in the shape that i needed sp i went to Ralphs and bought two disposable mini muffin tins and muffin wraps whatever you call them. The first thing you do is push down the bridge between two of the muffin cups. Then smooth out the wrinkles in the bottom of the depression with whatever you have around, i used the handle of a steak knife i had lying around. Nest line them with the paper muffin wraps.

Step 2: Apples

Peel and core the fuji apples. Then slice them in quarters and then chop them into even smaller pieces around 1/4 inches.

Step 3: The Filling

4 Fuji Apples (chopped and peeled)
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of granulated sugar
3/4 tbls. of cinnamon
2 tsp. of vanilla extract
1/2 tbls. of Grand Mariner Liquer
1 egg
1/4 cup of flour

Mix the dry ingredients(brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and flour) in a bowl and wisk them together. In another bowl mix the wet ingredients together (vanilla extract, liquer, and egg). Then fold in apples with a spatula or a large spoon. Coat apples evenly.

Step 4: The Crust

2 cups of flour
1 cup of butter
1/4 cup of shortening
2 tsp. of salt
2 tbls. of sugar
1/2 cup of ice water

Keep butter and shortening in fridge to harden. Put dry ingredients in a food processor and pulse for a couple of seconds. Chop butter and shortening into 1 inch pieces then pulse five times. Put water into a spray bottle and spray half of the water on to mixture and pulse five more times and then spray the rest of the water on it and pulse til the mix holds together. Shape it into a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge. Then roll dough out and cut it into 2 inch by 4 1/2 inch strips.

or skip all of this and use a store bought pie shell but home made is always best.

Step 5: Making the Stix

Take dough strips and spoon apple mixture leaving a 1/4 inch border then crimp the edges and lay them into the tray make sure to spray trays with canola oil to keep stix from sticking. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Let stixs bake for about twenty minutes or until golden brown. Let the stix cool completely and remove muffin wraps. Arrange sticks however you want depending on what you need them for. The road,party, or just because. For a gourmet look garnish sticks with powdered sugar and then apple slices.

    Hi! I'm not very good at cooking but I love to try any recipes I like. I've tried make an apple pie some time ago not so succesfull. And I'm glad I found your recipe! Thanks a bunch.

    I tried making this but i messed up on the dough, it became to runny and unusable. i figured out it was unusable after my mom came down stairs and yelled at me for 5 miuntes. i ended up mixing the runny dough and cinamin apples together and baked them in cupkake molds. they turned out alright but i also baked up some extra apples and put them on top. if any one else messes up as bad as i did i sugest adding some sugar to the mix to make the dough sweeter. Thanks for the recipe!


    i buy these all the time from the grocery store! they're one of my favorite breakfast snacks, thanks for sharing, i give it a 5

    Looks like the same thing only with slits and pie filling. And given being sold at starbucks...probably a HUGE price difference

    Aw, I see....never been to Starbucks, so I assumed, from what you said, that the one pictured was from bad :P Would still be nice to try this out sometime....whenever I HAVE the time


    starbucks sometimes has them, my mom's work (she works at BMC0, H.E.B. (if you live in the u.s.), and you can probably get them at a local bakery (obviously) and one more thing... the ones i get look way nicer, and they're moist, and have some "design" to them. (i'm not saying anything bad about yours, i'm just want to say how great they are if you can find them)
