“Baked cinnamon-apple slices are served up in individual ramekin dishes and topped with pumpkin-flavored sugar-dusted star cookies in this fall-inspired dessert recipe.”


    • 5 medium red-skinned cooking apples, cored, quartered and thinly sliced (about 5 cups)
    • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 3 tablespoons water
    • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
    • ½ cup all-purpose flour
    • ¼ cup whole-wheat flour
    • 1 tablespoon sugar (see Tip)
    • ½ teaspoon baking soda
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • ⅛ teaspoon salt
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • ¼ cup canned pumpkin
    • ¼ cup buttermilk
    • 1 tablespoon turbinado (raw) sugar (see Tip)


  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. In a bowl, toss together apple slices, the 1 tablespoon flour and the cinnamon.
  • 2 Spoon apple mixture into eight 6- to 8-ounce ramekins or custard cups. In a bowl, stir together the water and syrup. Drizzle evenly over apple mixture in ramekins. Cover with foil. Set ramekins in a 15x10-inch baking pan. Bake 25 minutes.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in center of the flour mixture. In another bowl, combine pumpkin and buttermilk. Add to flour mixture. Using a fork, stir just until moistened. Knead mixture gently to shape into a ball. Cover and chill while apple mixture is baking.
  • 4 On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to ¼-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out 8 stars, rerolling scraps as needed. Uncover ramekins. Arrange cutouts on partially baked apple mixture. Brush lightly with water and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  • 5 Bake, uncovered, about 15 minutes more or until stars are lightly browned and apples are tender and bubbly. Serve warm.
  • Tip: We do not recommend using sugar substitutes in this recipe.
