Apple pie inside an apple? Must make *now*
Apple pie is a staple Thanksgiving dessert. But making an entire pie can be a lot of work, and it isn't the easiest thing in the world. Not to mention, sometimes you're craving that apple pie taste without, you know, actually baking something that would feed your whole fam. The sweet solution? These apple pie stuffed apples. They're simple, small *and* a little bit healthier. We'll take one (or two or three), please.
- 6 large apples
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp rum extract
- 1 pie crust
- 2 Tbsp butter, melted
1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
2. Peel and dice 2 of the apples. Heat them in a small pan with the rum extract, cinnamon and sugar for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then remove and let cool slightly.
3. Cut the tops off of the other 4 apples and core them. Scoop out the center (carefully!) and place in an 8x8 baking dish. Fill with the apple mixture.
4. Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the pie crust into 1/4" strips and lay lattice-style across the tops of the apples. Trim any excess around the edges and brush with melted butter.
5. Bake in the oven for 25-30 or until golden brown.
Optional: Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar before serving.
