Apple Pie Baked Apples

Apple pie baked right into an apple complete with warm gooey filling and flaky lattice crust.  This video also happens to feature my favorite pastry crust as well.  It’s practically fool-proof and yields a light, buttery, and flaky crust each and every time.

Apple Pie Baked Apples
Cook time

Total time


Serves: 2

  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • ⅔ c unbleached flour
  • ½ tb sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 5 tb cold cubed unsalted butter
  • 1½-3 tb ice water
  • Cubed apples {from the scoops}
  • 2½ tb brown sugar
  • ½ ts cinnamon
  • ⅛ ts nutmeg
  • Zest of ¼ lemon
  • Juice of ¼ lemon
  • ½ tb potato starch {or flour}
  • Melted butter or egg wash for brushing + coarse sugar

  1. Whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt.
  2. Using a food processor or pastry cutter {I recommend a processor}, work the butter in until it resembles a coarse lumpy mass. Don’t use your fingers as it may melt the butter.
  3. Slowly tip in a bit of ice water until the dough begins to form. Try to not use too much water.
  4. Gather the dough up into plastic and flatten it into a disc. Chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  5. Cut the top off each apple and using a metal spoon/scoop, carve out the meat leaving a slight border. Use these bits to chop up for the filling.
  6. For the filling, gather everything into a bowl and toss.
  7. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and cut into strips.
  8. Weave the strips on top alternating going over and under {refer to video demonstration}.
  9. Brush the crust with either melted butter or egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.
  10. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

Have a great weekend, friends!
