DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Slice off top 1/4 to 1/3rd of the apple.
  • With small sharp knife or melon baller, carve out the apple leaving about a 1/4 inch or more shell. Be sure it is still strong enough to stand.
  • Dice the apple top and insides (of course you remove the seeds and stem).
  • Mix the diced apple, sugar, flour and cinnamon in a bowl.
  • Roll out your dough to about 1/4 inch.
  • Use a flower or round cookie cutter and cut a top for each apple. Use a straw to make 3 or 5 holes in the center (so it looks like a flower).
  • Fill apple with mix and top with flower.
  • There will be extra mix - if you are doing a bunch you can make a little pie or place in a ramekins and top with the flowers.
  • Brush tops with water, milk or butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  • Place on a sheet and bake in oven for about 40 minutes. Top should be golden and apple soft.
