Baked Apples Apple Pie


Baked Apples Apple pie

Apple picking season is at its peek in mid-September and October. With so many varieties to choose from, more than 2,500 varieties in the United States alone – which apple is the right one for baking?

You want an apple with flavor and firmness. A good baking apple will have a tart, acidic flavor and will bake down to a soft consistency but not mushy.

And these apples would include the Granny Smith, Braeburns, Johnathon, Pink Lady, Golden Delicious and Honey Crisp.

If the color of the apple isn’t a vibrant red or an even shade of green don’t worry their flavor and crispiness is still the same as a so called first grade apple.

With that said, lets gather our ingredients and get to baking…

Baked Apples Apple Pie 

5 large apples – mix or match (Granny Smith, Johnathon, Pink Lady, Golden Delicious, Honey Crisp)

1 8-9 inch pie crust, pre-made or home made

½ cup of sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. nutmeg

1 tbsp. butter cut in 8 small pieces

Pre-heat 375 degrees

  1. Core and hollow out 4 apples.
  2. Dice the apple flesh from cored apples, plus the one remaining apple; peeled and cored first.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine diced apples, cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg. Fill each of the 4 apples with the prepared mix. Place two small pieces of butter in each apple.
  4. Next roll out your pie crust cut into strips and create a lattice on top of each apple, slightly allow strips to lap over sides of apple opening.
  5. Place apples on a 13 x 9 baking dish. Put in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes and serve.
