Crazy Apple Pie!

By Patty Liston

Just when you think you have seen it all, someone comes along with a spectacular recipe for apple pie. No, not your grandma's apple pie, but a new version of the old recipe using of all things, apples! Just take a look:

Crazy Apple Pie

6 Granny Smith apples
1 pie crust
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon - depending on taste

Cup off the top of 4 apples and discard

Carefully remove the inside of each apple so as not to pierce the skin

Remove the skin from the other 2 apples

Thinly slice the "meat" of the 2 apples. These slices will make up the filling.

Mix the sliced apples with sugars and 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Spoon this mix into the 4 hollowed out apples

Roll out the pie crust and slice it into 1/4 inch strips

Cover the top of each apple in a lattice pattern. See the picture for an example.

Place the apples in an 8x8 inch pan

Add enough water to cover the bottom of the pan

Cover the pan with the apples in it, with foil

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes

Remove the foil and bake for another 20 minutes or until the crust is a rich golden brown, and the sliced apples are soft
