Thought I'd encourgage your sweet tooth today!


Baked Apple, Apple Pie:

Apple pie in an apple!

How awesome does this look??


Step 1: Cut off the top of 4 apples off and discard. Remove the inside of each apple with a spoon or melon baller very carefully, as to not puncture the peel.

If you’re a skilled interior apple excavator, salvage as much as you can so you can use it for Step 2.  I, on the other hand, am not skilled so I just had to throw my interior apples away and chop up additional apples for filling.

This recipe will make 4 baked apple pies (in the apple).

Step 2: Remove skin from remaining apple(s) and slice very thinly. These apple pieces will give you the additional filling needed to fill the four apples you are baking.

Mix sliced apples with sugars and cinnamon in a bowl. If you prefer more or less cinnamon make adjustments as desired. Same goes for the sugar.

Scoop sliced apples into hollow apples.

Step 3: Roll out pie crust and slice into 1/4 inch strips.  You can also add a strip of pastry inside the top of the apple almost like a liner to add a little more texture/sweetness to the pie.

Cover the top of the apple in a lattice pattern with pie crust strips.

Step 4: Place apples in an 8×8 pan.  Add just enough water to the cover the bottom of the pan.

Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and sliced apples are soft.

How neat does that look? The entire thing is edible and best served with ice cream if you ask me.  Enjoy!



Notes: I did this a few months ago and my family loved it! The best part about this dessert? Minimal dishes! No pie dish or pie plates to wash afterwards, just forks! If you're not experienced at scooping out apples, this may get a little frustrating but just keep chugging! I used a spoon but I imagine a melon baller would work better. Here's what mine looked like:
