3applesI used Breaburn and Granny Smith.
Pie crust pre-made or homemade
cinnamon to preference on top of dessert
2-3Tbspall purpose flour
1/3 to 1/2cupapple juice
1/2 - 1tspapple pie spice
4-6Tbspof sugar; may add slowly and taste per preference for increased sugar need for mixture
caramel saucedrizzle on top per preference
Wash your apples then cut them in half.
Use a melon baller to scoop the flesh out of the center of the apples as pictured below. Discard the seeds then save the rest of the apple flesh for pie filling.
Chop the flesh of the apple into small pieces and cook on medium to low heat in a pan with the apple juice, flour, sugar and apple pie spice. Once the apples have softened and the liquid is thickened the mixture is done. Replace it back into the apple bowls.
Cut the pie crust to be slightly larger that the apple top. Cover the bowls with pie crust. Lightly brush the crust with egg, then sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
