Whether you're building appetizers or desserts, our Apple of a Pie not only has great eye appeal, but it's easy to make and sure to please.
  • 5-6 apples (They need to be firm and look good to stand on their own. I use nothing but Granny Smiths in my apple pie recipes.)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • pie crust (either store brought or home made - your choice)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 F.
  2. Cut off the top of 4 apples 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. If you're not skilled, just throw the interior apples away and chop up additional apples for filling (that's why we have extra apples!).
  3. 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.
  4. Mix sliced apples with sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. If you prefer more or less cinnamon or sugar, make adjustments as desired. But first time out, you'll likely want to follow the recipe.
  5. Scoop sliced apples into hollow apples.
  6. Roll out pie crust and slice into ¼ 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.
  7. Cover the top of the apple in a lattice pattern with pie crust strips (as shown in picture).
  8. Place apples in an 8×8 pan.
  9. Add just enough water to the cover the bottom of the pan.
  10. Cover with foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  11. Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and sliced apples are soft.
