Is there anything more American than apple pie? A unique twist on this staple dessert is a must try.

Prep: 10 minutes

Bake: 45 minutes

Makes: 4


6 Apples

1/4 cup Granulated Sugar

2 tbsp Brown Sugar

2 tbsp Flour

1 tsp Cinnamon

Lemon Juie

1 Pie Crust, cut into strips (Pre-made or Homemade)

2 tbsp Milk

Turbinado Sugar (optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Take 4 apples and slice off the top and cut/dig out the inside, be careful to not puncture the skin. To prevent the inside of the apple browning squeeze lemon juice over top of each apple.Peel and seed the other two apples and dice into small pieces. Add the apples into bowl along with the sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and the juice of 1/2 a lemon, stir to combine. Spoon the diced apple mixture into the apple bowl, fill to the top. Slice pie crust into 1/4 inch strips that is 4 inches long. Take 6 strips and make a basket weave pattern then place onto the apple. Using a pairing knife trim off any excess dough. Repeat the process for the remaining apples. Brush milk over the crust to help the crust to evenly brown. Sprinkle a little turbinado sugar over top for a little extra crunch.Place apples into a 8x8 baking dish and cover with aluminum foil.

Bake apples for 20 minutes, then remove the aluminum foil and bake for another 25 minutes or until the crust has become golden brown. Allow apples to cool for 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
