Apple Pie Filling for Gluten Free Pop Tarts

We made gluten free apple pie pop tarts for breakfast this morning. Usually we use jam or jelly for our pop tarts but we only had apples so we created these tasty breakfast pastries. You can also serve this filling raw with a few almonds on top and call them "cinnamon sugar apples!"

4 apples diced finely
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons corn starch (or potato starch or tapioca flour)
1/2-3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
nutmeg to taste-small pinch
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 batch gluten free pop tart crust

1.Finely dice apples.
2.Add the sugar, starch, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon juice.
3. Use as a filling for apple pie pop tarts--or use the pop tart crust to make mini apple pies.

More thoughts...I used 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, but if you prefer more apple pie flavor, then you can use a 1/4 teaspoon more cinnamon. They were quite sweet, so I might use a little less sugar next time.
