St. Paddy’s Apple Pie


7 Granny Apples

½ cup of sugar

½ t cinnamon

2 T brown sugar

1 Package of pre-made piecrust

Confectioner’s sugar



Cut the tops off of 6 apples and discard the tops.  Very carefully remove the insides of the apple with a melon baller or a spoon.  Make sure you do not puncture the apple peel.

Slice the apple pieces you removed from the inside of the apple into thin pieces.  Place the apple pieces in a bowl and add sugar and cinnamon and mix thoroughly.  Place the mixture into the hollow apples.

Roll out the piecrust and slice into ¼ inch strips.  Cover the top of the apple with a lattice pattern with piecrust strips and brush on top with melted butter.  Place apples in a baking pan and add enough water to cover the bottom of the apples.  Cover with foil and bake for 25 minutes at 350. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes until crust is golden brown and sliced apples are soft.

Slice your leftover apple.  Sprinkle the baked apple pie with Confectioner’s sugar and garnish with sliced apple.

    This failed miserably. First they don’t tell you what temperature to bake it at…so I looked up regular apple pie recipes to get an average.. (425) and the apples exploded into a mess. The apple (bottom) didn’t hold and just fell apart even though I did NOT puncture the peel at all. However, my house smells great! 🙂

      Hi Rachael! We’re sorry to hear that! We’ve heard from lots of people who have made it without a hitch. Try baking it at 350 next time and let us know how it goes. At least you’re looking on the bright side of a yummy smelling house. 🙂
