Give Thanks: Apple Pie Baked in Apples

Hi Whatever Dee-Dee Wants readers! I'm Vanessa from See Vanessa Craft, where I post about my love for glitter and hot glue guns (among other things). I'm excited to be guest posting here today and I'd love for you to stop by my blog and say hello! In November I will be posting something I'm grateful for every day leading up to Thanksgiving and I'll have a linky up so you can link up your own 22 Grateful Days.

Are you in charge of making the dessert for Thanksgiving dinner? Impress your family and friends with these mini apple pies, baked right inside the apples themselves! This looks much more complicated to make than it actually is. The most difficult part is making sure you don’t cut into the skin of the apple when you are hallowing out the insides. Try using a small melon baller and you shouldn’t have any problems. If your insides look like mush after the hallowing, peel and slice 2 additional apples for a prettier pie filling.  

Materials (makes 4 apple pies, recipe adapted from 4 Large Granny Smith Apples (make sure they can stand on their own) ¼ Cup Sugar 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon ½ Teaspoon Nutmeg Pie Crust    

Instructions Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Use a melon baller or spoon to hallow out 4 apples. Step 2: Slice the insides of the hallowed out apples and mix with sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Step 3: Fill the hallowed apples with the apple pie filling mixture. Step 4: Roll out pie crust and slice into thin strips, approximately ¼ inches wide. Place on top of apples in a lattice pattern. Step 5: Place apples in a deep baking dish, fill the bottom with water. Place foil over the dish and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
