Author Anna @ Anna Can Do It!


  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 2 1/2 cups Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 cups Trail mix
  • 2 Carrots
  • 1/2 cup Raisin Optional, I know there are a lot of people who don't like it
  • 1 Apple
  • 1 Orange's Zest
  • 1 cup Water


  • Mix the sugar, butter, flour, and egg until it's well combined and it forms a dough. (It may look like it won't combine, but keep mixing, and use your hand if you need to!)
  • Wrap the dough in a clean foil and let it rest in the fridge until your filling is ready.
  • Preheat the oven.
  • Peel and grate the carrots and the apple.
  • Mix them with the trail mix, the orange zest, and the raisins.
  • Cook them with the water for 10-15 minutes or until everything softens. Let it cool a little and with a hand blender, blend it a bit so it doesn't contain large pieces.
  • In the meanwhile, roll out the dough and cut round shapes in the size of your cupcake form.
  • Cut little stars from the remaining dough.
  • Push the dough into a cupcake pan or cupcake liners.
  • Fill them with the filing, then add the stars.
  • Bake it for about 15-20 minutes (or until the edge of the dough starts to turn golden, it burns quickly!) on medium-high heat.
