The other day I was on Pinterest looking for something good to bake. I stumbled on this picture of Apple Pie Baked in the Apple. I thought it looked amazingly good.
I baked this tonight and have to say that this is one of the best apple dessert I’ve had in a long time! It removed the crust except for the topping, yet it still had the best taste without it. Being baked inside of the apple was twice the surprise as eating a regular piece of pie. You get the sugary, cinnamon flavor of the cut up apples on the inside and the soft baked apple on the outside was soft and sweet. This is a must try for sure.
5-6 Granny Smith apples that can stand on their own
1 teaspoon of cinnamon – I added a bit more on the apples and on the top of the pie crust when baking
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Pie Crust (homemade or pre-made) I used the pre-made!
Here’s what you do:
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cut the top of 4 apples off and discard. Remove the inside of each apple with a spoon or melon baller very carefully.
Roll out pie crust and slice into 1/4 inch strips.
Cover the top of the apple in a lattice pattern with pie crust strips.
Place apples in an 8×8 pan. If your apples are big you may need a bigger 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.
Caleb decided he didn’t want one of these for his bedtime snack. Too bad for him because now Nana gets to have another one tomorrow!!
I still can’t get over how easy this was to make and how good it was. Fantastico!!
What a way to end the weekend. Have a great week.
