Apple Pie Baked in Apple

6 Granny Smith apples
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon cold butter
1 pkg premade pie crusts

1) Preheat oven to 375F.

2) Cut off the top of 4 apples off and discard. Remove the inside of each apple with a spoon or melon baller, being careful not to puncture the peel. Reserve interior of apples to chop up for filling.

3) Remove skin and core from remaining apple and slice very thinly. These apple pieces will give you the additional filling needed to fill the four apples you are baking.

Mix sliced and chopped apples with sugars and cinnamon in a bowl. Scoop apple mixture into hollowed apples.

Cut butter into four pieces, placing one piece on top of filling in each apple. 

4) Roll out pie crust and slice into 1/4 inch strips. Cover the top of the apple in a lattice pattern with pie crust strips.

5) 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.

Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and sliced apples are soft.

Best eaten while still warm. Great served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Enjoy!
