Inside Out Apple Pies

inside out, apple,pie,recipe
  • 6 apples of your choice (keep one extra apple on hand if you need it for filling), cored with the insides scooped out using a spoon or melon baller.
  • One pie crust recipe cut into 1/2 inch thick by 6 inch long strips  (I used store bought crust)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons of all purpose flour 
  • 1 tablespoon of corn starch
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar 
  • 1/2 cup lite packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg

  • Preheat your over to 350 degrees. 
  • In a small saucepan, melt the 1/2 cup of unsalted butter.  Whisk in the flour and corn starch to form a paste.  Add white and brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, reduce temperature and simmer while whisking.

Cut off the tops of your apples, score the inside and use a melon baller or spoon to scoop out the insides.  

Using the pieces of the apple that you scooped out in the previous step,  cut small cubes/slices, place in a bowl and pour in the butter and sugar mixture, leaving about a cup to pour over the top of the crust. I decided to cut up an extra apple to make sure I had enough filling. 

Place the coated apple chunks inside of your apple.

Cover the top of your apple with your pre-cut pie strips and top each apple with a few tablespoons of the butter and sugar mixture and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Place apples on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for an hour.

  2. What a fantastic idea! I would never think to do something like that with apples. Might just have to try it one weekend because I'm sure my kids would love it!
