These perfect sized apple crumb pies are so cute! Instead of the traditional pie in the pie tin, these little cutie-pies are baked in the apple. They are the perfect size for a snack or a personal dessert. The pies are quick and easy especially since the crust is a delicious crumb topping with brown sugar and cinnamon.

Step 1: Ingredients
For each medium apple's filling, you will need:
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 tablespoon all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
For each medium apple's topping, you will need:
1 1/4 tablespoon flour
1/2 tablepoon brown sugar
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of salt
1/2 tablespoon butter, melted
Step 2: Making the Bowls
Wash the apple you are using and cut off a lid from each one. Use a small sharp knife and a small spoon, carve the apple to form a bowl. Chop up the innards of the apple for the filling. Dice the lid as well.
To make sure the apple "crust" (outside of the apple) doesn't get dark, add a few drops of lemon juice.
Step 3: Mixing the Filling
Mix all of the ingredients of the filling together. Add to the diced/chopped apple pieces and toss with a spoon. Pour the filling into the carved apple.
Step 4: Mixing and Baking
Mix all of the ingredients of the topping together and sprinkle onto the top of the filling. Bake at 370 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 to 10 minutes.
