How To Make apple pie baked in the apple.

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375%
  • 2
    Cut off the top of 4 apples off and discard. Remove the inside of each apple with a spoon very carefully, as to not puncture the peel.
  • 3
    Remove skin from 2 additional apples and slice very thinly. These apple pieces will give you 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 sugar, make adjustments as desired.
  • 5
    Scoop sliced apples into hollow apples.
  • 6
    Roll out pie crust and slice into 1/4 inch strips.
  • 7
    (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. )
  • 8
    Cover the top of the apple in a lattice pattern with pie crust strips.
  • 9
    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.
  • 10
    Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and sliced apples are soft.
