**When I made these I decided to not stuff the pie filling inside the waffles. I just put a little of the apple pie filling over the top of each waffle and then placed a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of the pie filling. Also- we used a lot less cinnamon than the recipe calls for in the churro topping. Next time I'd like to try these with peach pie filling.
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 1/2 cups warm milk
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 shakes of cinnamon
For the churro topping:
1 cup of white sugar
1/2 cup cinnamon ( 1/4 cup if you don't love cinnamon like I do)
1/2 cup of melted butter
1 can of Lucky Leaf Apples or any can you prefer
If your feeling really ambitious you can make your own apple filling.
1.In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar; set aside. Also at this time you can combine your churro topping and set it aside. Preheat waffle iron
2.In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture; Next fold in three shakes of cinnamon beat until blended
3. At this time you can also melt your 1/2 cup of butter used to pour over waffles. Next generously spray your waffle iron with no stick cooking spray. Than ladle a little batter into a preheated waffle iron, gently place on 4-5 apple slices ( depending on size of your waffle iron, smaller size use 2-3 apples.
4. Next add more batter on top of apples, be careful not to overflow waffle maker. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. ( Caution, mixing the apples directly into the batter yielded undesirable results for me)
5.Once fully cooked immediately pour melted butter on each side of the waffle and than dip each buttered side into your cinnamon/sugar churro mixture.
