Cindy’s idea of relaxing? Making an apple pie that’s just like Mom’s. Let’s hope she shares the recipe.

Rich and chocolatey---these elegant truffle cups will be the hit of your holiday tray.
Dietary Fiber: 1g
I made these for three different parties over the holidays and they were a hit each time! They are delicious! The only change I made was I used half of a Lindt chocolate truffle instead of a whole truffle in each cup. A half was perfect!
I have only made the shells so far, but they are GREAT! Something between pie crust / short bread and brownie. I usually come up short of recipe yields, but I got 54(!) little crusts out of this recipe, which is 50% more than the stated yield! I used confectioners cups, which are small, but I'm pretty sure I made one-inch balls. A tip: if you don't have a pie-tamper-down-thingy, one of this 1-ounce liquor bottles works great! (The kind sold on airplanes or at the checkout.) Just press it in (with lid on) and for some reason the grooves on the lid help it pop right back out. I do recommend emptying the bottle first!
