Individual Bake In Apple Pies

Individual Bake In Apple Pies

These are so fun because once these are baked, you have individual apple pies that require no plate as the apple skin is the bowl!  A little time is required to prep, but it pretty simple from that point.

Wash and slice the top of your apples- I made 6.

I squared out the core and carefully removed it.  

Once the core was out, I scraped the remaining apple out and placed the salvaged apple in a bowl.

I coated the insides of my apple skins with a bit of lime juice to keep them from browning.

Take the apple and place in a saucepan with 1/2 c brown sugar, 1 tsp ginger and 3 tsp cinnamon.  Let it caramelize and allow the apples to cook and soften.  Fill each hollowed apple shell with the apple pie mixture.

Now, make your pie crust-
In a bowl combine 1 c flour, 2 tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/3 c milk and 3 tbsp melted butter.  Mix well and roll out to be sliced into strips 1/4" thick.  

Create a lattice design with the dough strips on top of each of the apples.  Place the apples in a 8x8 baking sheet with enough water in the base to completely cover the bottom of the pan.  

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.  Let cool slightly so filling doesn't burn your mouths and serve alone or with vanilla ice cream! YUM!!
