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. 

Mix some up for your next dessert....these Apple Crumb Pies in the Apple are sure to delight!

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.

Make as many or as few as you want! That is the beauty of this recipe. :) Not to mention these apples are so adorable and cute! Try the recipe out and leave a comment below.

(I promise to have better photos that reflect do these pies justice :)
<p>@#Interesting design!!</p>
What an inventive idea!! :) TIP: Use an ORGANIC apple.
<p>Organic apples will definitely work better than plastic ones, which I find tend to be a bit chewy. However, you can save on the lemon juice with them.</p>
Thank you so much for the nice comment!
<p>how did you add the lemon drops?</p>
I tried didn't taste that great but probably because of a screw up on my part
Well, what do you think went wrong?
that is such a wonderful idea! i love it :)
Thanks for such the nice comment!
I have 10 apples sitting in my family fridge waiting to be eaten. What the heck. Why not? :)
Haha. I'm glad you decided to try it! And a cookie sheet would be perfect!
So you cook them on a cookie sheet?
I will definitely be doing this tomorrow night. I made a pan of apple crumb for Thanksgiving and didn't get any :(<br>There's still a large granny smith I didn't use so now I can make a personal batch with this recipe. I like to add oats to the mix.
Awwh :( Oats would probably work well too. Let me know how it went and thanks for the nice comment!
Interesting design, apple with a secret)
Thanks for the nice comment :) (I wonder what else the apple has up its sleeve :)
i am hungry now..........
Haha. Make one then!
This is cool! I have to try this! :D
Definitely! Let me know how it went!
I will (If my parents let me make it :p )!
They definitely were!
You forgot the raisins!. Wrap in a couple of layers of foil and put in your next campfire.
Good idea! Maybe I will...
I'm definitely going to try this tonight. Would it be possible to cook it in a microwave somehow?<br>
I think a microwave will definitely work! I don't have the timing for that so experiment!
Very creative!<br>Sunshiine
Thanks for the nice comment :)
Wow, those sound seriously amazing!
Haha. Yum! You should give it a try!
That is really cool and looks like lots of fun to eat!
It definitely was! :) Thanks for the nice comment!
Is just 10 minutes long enough to cook the exterior of the apples so they're soft?
It actually is. I think because it is baked at 370 and the apple skin isn't such a good barrier for heat, the apple is soft at around 10 minutes (5 minutes if you like the crunch :)
