Introduction: Apple Crumb Pie in the Apple

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 :)

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.

I will definitely be doing this tomorrow night. I made a pan of apple crumb for Thanksgiving and didn't get any :(
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.

jen7714 made it! (author)jen77142011-12-09

Awwh :( Oats would probably work well too. Let me know how it went and thanks for the nice comment!

You forgot the raisins!. Wrap in a couple of layers of foil and put in your next campfire.

I'm definitely going to try this tonight. Would it be possible to cook it in a microwave somehow?

author
jen7714 made it! (author)jen77142011-11-29

I think a microwave will definitely work! I don't have the timing for that so experiment!

Is just 10 minutes long enough to cook the exterior of the apples so they're soft?

author
jen7714 made it! (author)jen77142011-11-27

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 :)
