Apple Pie Baked Apples

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 3 Granny Smith apples
  • 3 pink lady apples
  • 1 tbsp. warm water
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1/3 c. granulated sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 pie crust
  • 1 large egg beaten with 1 tbsp. milk (egg wash)
  • Caramel, for drizzling


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Peel and dice one green and red apple.
  3. Slice off the tops and, using a melon baller, hollow out the remaining apples. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together warm water and cornstarch.
  5. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add diced apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, and sugar. Bring to a simmer and cook until apples are tender, about 5 minutes. Add in cornstarch mixture and cook 5 minutes more.
  6. Place hollowed out apples in a baking dish and fill with cooked apple mixture.
  7. On a piece of wax paper, roll out pie dough and cut into 4 circles. Slice each circle into thin strips. Make a lattice top on each apple, trimming any excess.
  8. Brush crust with egg wash and sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar. Bake until apples are tender and crust is golden, 28-30 minutes.
  9. Drizzle with caramel and serve immediately.
