Step 1:

Begin by allowing your cream cheese to set at room temperature for about 10 minutes prior to beginning so it's easier to work into the filling mixture.


Step 2:

Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and begin by using the olive oil to grease the muffin pan.


Step 3:

Peel your apple, or clean the peel if you want to include the peel in the filling. Dice the apple into pea-sized or smaller chunks, setting aisde the core and seeds for compost.


Step 4:

In a small mixing bowl, combine egg, softened cream cheese, spices, and half of the brown sugar, blending together until incorporated.


Step 5:

Fold the diced apple into filling mixture and make sure the apple is distributed well.


Step 6:

Press the discs of refrigerated biscuit dough into the muffin pans, filling the bottoms and pressing excess dough up against the sides of the holes.


Step 7:

Fill each dough cup with filling, distributing the mixture evenly amongst the cups. When done, the mixture should be at roughly the same height as the pan's top.


Step 8:

Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes. After 12 minutes, lower the temperature to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and continue baking for 25 more minutes.


Step 9:

Finally, use oven mitts to pull out the pan and top the dessert with the remaining half of the brown sugar. Place back into the oven and bake for 5 more minutes.


Step 10:

Using oven mitts, pull out the pan and allow to cool for about an hour.
