What greater way is there to spice up an age old apple pie recipe then by placing the contents of the filling inside of an apple? Some may think it's strange, others may consider it completely inhumane to subject the apple to being stuffed with its own spiced innards, but the truth is that this recipe is utterly genius and certainly something that will differentiate your baked dessert from the rest.
A hole is cut into the top of the fruit and apple chunks are scooped out like a pumpkin. Then they are cooked and flavored with cinnamon and other fall seasonings, then stuffed back into place. A weaved pie crust hat is made to rest on top of the filled fruit and placed in the oven for 30 minutes. This literal apple pie recipe will have people gushing over your creativity.
