How To Make apple pie baked in apple

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375F.
  • 2
    Cut off the top of 4 apples & discard. Remove the inside of these apples with a spoon or melon baller. Do not puncture the peel. Salvage as much as you can so you can use it for the filling in the next step.
  • 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 sugars and cinnamon in a bowl. If you prefer more or less cinnamon and/or cinnamon, adjust as desired. Now scoop these sliced apples into the apple shells.
  • 5
    Roll out your 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.
  • 6
    Place apples in an 8×8 pan. Add just enough water to the cover the bottom of the pan.
  • 7
    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. Makes 4 baked apple pies (in the apple).
