Apple pie may be one of the most classic desserts when it comes to pies in general. But have you ever considered making one inside of the actual apple? Sounds crazy but it’s possible and a very delicious experience too. Here’s how to make these adorable pies!

Ingredients

Serves 4:

  • 4 medium apples
  • 4 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Lemon juice
  • Chilled pie dough, rolled out about 1/8 inch thick
  1. 1Preheat the oven to 350ºF/180ºC.
  2. 2Wash the apples well under cold water. Pat dry with paper towels. Set on a cutting board.
  3. 3Cut a lid into each apple, and remove the tops. With a small sharp knife, carve out the core and seeds (without piercing the bottoms of the apples).
  4. 4Using a small spoon, carefully scrape out the insides of the apple until an apple cup is formed. Save the pulp in a small bowl for the filling.
    • Rub a tiny bit of lemon juice on the insides of each apple to prevent them from turning brown.
  5. 5Dice and peel the lids very finely. Toss out the stems. Put the peeled and diced lid bits into the pulp bowl.
  6. 6Mix the sugar, flour and ground cinnamon into the apple pulp until well blended.
  7. 7Spoon the filling back into each apple. Fill about 3/4 of the way to prevent spillage of filling while baking.
  8. 8Using a cookie cutter (or knife), cut out apple lid sized circles in the dough, 1 per apple. You can also cut out shapes like leaves, flowers, stars or animals and layer each piece onto the apple to form a crust.
  9. 9Gently lay the crust circles over the apple tops and pinch the edges together much like you would a regular pie to seal the edges. Poke four little holes in the top to allow steam to come through.
  10. 10Bake on a baking sheet for 30-40 minutes or until slightly tender and crust is golden brown.
  11. 11Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
  12. 12Serve warm sprinkled with powdered sugar or cinnamon on the tops. Enjoy!
  13. 13Finished.
  • You can add additional ingredients to suit your fancy such as chopped walnuts or mix in a bit of caramel in the filling.
