Step 1

Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly spray 8 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.

Step 2

In 10-inch skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Add apples; cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons brown sugar, the cinnamon and salt. Cook 5 minutes longer or until tender. Stir in lemon juice.

Step 3

Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix butter, flour, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and walnuts with fork or hands until crumbly. Set aside.

Step 4

Separate dough into 8 rolls. Flatten each into 4-inch round; place in muffin cup. Divide apple filling evenly onto rolls in muffin cups. Divide flour mixture evenly over apples.

Step 5

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until bubbly and tops are lightly browned. Cool slightly before removing from muffin cups. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Serve cupcakes topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of syrup.

Be still my heart! After having my first one I was dying for another. Had all I could do not to have a third. So freaking good!
