large Granny Smith apples
(21 ounce) can apple pie filling

  • 1 Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • 2 Slice the top off each of your apples and scoop out the inside of the apple. I used a knife and a spoon to hollow out the apple.

  • 4 Unroll one pie crust and cut it into fourths; one for each apple. Then cut each quarter into 1/4-inch strips.
  • 5 Lay strips of the dough on top of the apple. Then take one new strip at a time and alternate weaving it over and under the pie strips already in place. Repeat until the top of the apple has been covered. Trim excess pie crust around the edges with a knife.

Apple-Lattice Pies

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

Mini apple pies with lattice crusts, baked inside apples. Ever see anything cuter than this?

Everything's always more fun in a mini-version. For instance, I love apple pie, but to make an entire apple pie is a little bit too much of a commitment for me.

These Apple-Lattice Pie Baked in an Apple are perfectly and naturally proportioned –in edible serving dishes!

Just take it step-by-step, and you'll see how easy these are to assemble:

Slice off the top of your Granny Smith apples. I like to use this apple variety because they hold up well.  

Repeat with the remaining apples.  

Hollow out the inside of each apple with a knife and a spoon.

Add a little cinnamon to the filling, then pour it into the hollowed apple cups.

Roll out your pie crust.

Cut the crust into 4 pieces, one for each pie. Cut each quarter into 1/4-inch strips.

Lay 3 to 4 strips of pie crust (depending how thick they are) on top of each filled apple.  

Take one new strip at a time and, going perpendicular, weave the strip over and under the original strips. Repeat to finish the lattice top.  

Trim the excess pie crust off the edges.

This is how they should look when you're done with all four of them. Aren't they pretty?  

Place the apples in a water bath and bake away.  

Done! They're golden brown and smellin' good. I couldn't wait to take a bite of these warm bubbly mini-pies!
