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

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 :(
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.

I'm definitely going to try this tonight. Would it be possible to cook it in a microwave somehow?
Is just 10 minutes long enough to cook the exterior of the apples so they're soft?
