Apple Pie Baked Apples

Apple Pie Baked Apples

We are SO excited because this week is our first ever guest post with our friend Sheri who shared this delicious recipe with us! She and her husband had just returned from a spur of the moment trip to Julian for their famous apple pie and cider when she called us with the idea to make our own apple pie …. in baked apples! Needless to say we were hooked… luckily she had picked up some ready mix from Julian during her trip, so we set a date to make these yummy treats! The recipe we used is simple and practically fool-proof, as well as being the perfect single serving dessert. And, if you’re looking for a fun treat to really make a statement at your family table this Thanksgiving, this is it!


  • 4-8 Apples (Granny Smith & Rome apples are perfect!)
  • Your Favorite Apple Pie mix (Or self prepared mix of sugars & cinnamon)
  • 1 tsp. Butter to coat Apples
  • Pie Crust (Ready made)


  1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut tops off of apples, core with melon baller leaving 1/4 inch thickness around sides so the apple does not buckle when baking.
  3. Use 1-2 apples to peel and slice into small-ish pieces. Place into mixing bowl.
  4. Coat evenly with butter & sugars, place mixture into cored apples and set aside.
  5. Roll out pie crust mixture, slice into strips for lattice & cover apples
  6. Place into 8×10 baking pan and fill with just enough water to coat the bottom of the pan.
  7. Cover with tin foil & Place into oven.
  8. Bake apples for 25 minutes with the foil, then remove foil and bake additional 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  9. Let cool, serve & Enjoy!
