Cinnamon Apple Pie in a Cone!

We’ve all had the classic American treat – apple pie. I’m sure it’s a sin or something, but I seriously do not like apple pie. It’s nothing against apple pie, but its all pies, actually! I’m a texture person and I don’t like cooked fruit. I always try it and I just can’t stomach it. So why am I talking about apple pie? I’m talking about it because we’ve concocted a way to take this cinnamony, sugary goodness of said pie and threw it all into an ICE CREAM CONE! This is a cone you can NOT get from your ice cream man though. You know how we love our treats around here! Did you know that a sugar cone only has 50 calories? So, this is almost a guilt free treat. Sure, there’s sugar inside, but there are also apples. And you know what they say “an apple a day keeps the doctor away!”Classic Apple Pie in an Ice Cream Cone! www.thepinningmama.com

We’ve seen all sorts of goodies inside cones – rice krispies and baked cupcakes just to name a couple. We thought we could make an apple pie cute and portable, and we did it! And here we are sharing it with all you fantastic peeps. I just realized how perfect these would be for 4th of July. Oh my gosh, that would be cute overload.  {side note – to see the apple pie cones being made, scroll to the bottom for a video tutorial.}

  • First you will want to peel and chop your apples up so that they are ready to go into your pan.

  • Then you’re going to mix 1/4 cup of water and 1 tsp of cornstarch over medium heat until the cornstarch dissolves. I know 1 tsp doesn’t seem like a lot, but because we are reducing our mix you really don’t need a thickening agent.
  • Once the cornstarch is dissolved, add your sugars (white and brown), pure vanilla extract, a pinch of salt (I think this brings out some more sweetness), and cinnamon.
  • Once you have this all mixed, pour in your chopped apples and combine. Keep mixing until the sugar and apples start sticking together and the mixture has thickened. It takes about 10 minutes for everything to thicken and the apples to soften.
  • Set apple mixture aside and cool completely.Classic Apple Pie in an Ice Cream Cone! www.thepinningmama.com
  • Set up 6 sugar cones and spoon even amounts of apples into each cone.
  • Top with fat free cool whip or homemade whipped cream if you’re really indulging!
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon and have a party!Classic Apple Pie in an Ice Cream Cone! www.thepinningmama.com

Wouldn’t these be cute for a birthday party too? I actually might make them for my littles western theme birthday in September. Always planning!

      You’re welcome! So glad you enjoyed it. Being more detailed takes more work, but when it gets noticed it is totally worth it! :)

      He would love it! My daughter doesn’t get many sweets, but she feels so special when she gets anything in a cone. :)

    Okay! I think this will definitely be making it onto my “must try” list for the summer!! What a great idea!! And I see nothing wrong with substituting ice cream for the cool whip! Thanks for linking up with us in the #LOBS party!! Now I’m off to pin this baby!

    • Ashley says

      Thank you Kristen! All you ladies are so sweet! We’re happy to have found your link up. :) Thanks for pinning. Oh, I definitely want to try ice cream on top! Mmmm

    It’s funny that you say that because I can’t stand baked fruit!! I love cold (or just picked) fruit and I love sweets but I can’t combine them. I do like pie..but only if it’s like chocolate peanut butter pie.

    This looks awesome! I do love treats in cones. And so does my daughter.

    • Ashley says

      Yes! I can eat a Boston cream pie, chocolate or PB pie like its my job. :) what if you just fill the cone w ice cream and then put 1 little piece of apple on top? You’re practically eating apple pie in a cone! Hehe

    Hi – Visiting from the LOBS party. These look so good! I am pinning to my Cooking with Kids board. I think this would be perfect for little hands! And I agree they would be perfect for a western themed birthday party!

  4. says

    These look deliciously light and simple! I am not a big fan of apple pie, but you have got me thinking. What about a berry filling instead? Hmmm. . .
    Thanks for the idea. Onto Pinterest it goes!
