Low carb, low sugar…maximum health, great flavor! What’s more is they are baked in their own skin. No pre-baking crusts or canned apple pie filling.
And it’s for two! How cute is that?
While I’m not the biggest fan of apple pie…where’s the chocolate?!…these are delicious, especially when topped with a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt and salted caramel sauce.
‘Tis the season for apples! We picked up an entire box of freshly picked North Carolina apples during our fall trip to Asheville, NC a few weeks ago. It was only appropriate that I make Easy No Peel Applesauce and these apple pies for two.
Be sure to keep scrolling down for two GIF‘s of how I made these pies. 😀 It’s so fun!
I mean, who wouldn’t be giggly happy when they cut into an apple pie like that?!
Sorry, completely off topic, but does anyone notice the little dip in the left spoke of my fork? They’re all like that. Anyone know why? I’m just curious.
Anyway. Let’s get back to these delicious apple pies!
GIFs of making the apple pies for two:
I hope you get these a try and surprise a loved one with the other one. Or eat them both yourself. 😉 I won’t tell anyone.
And if you’re into a little more untraditional apple pie, may I suggest the Impossible French Apple Pie?
Apple Pies for Two
pie crust adapted from Chocolate & Carrots
- (crust) 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
- (crust) 1 teaspoon sugar
- (crust) 1/2 teaspoon salt
- (crust) 1/4 cup cold unsalted butter
- (crust) 2-3 tablespoons skim milk
- 2 medium-large granny smith apples, washed
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- olive oil spray
- To make the crust, combine the flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
- Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or two knives to break the butter up into tiny pieces.
- One tablespoon of milk at a time, mix the dough until the dough comes together to form a ball. Make sure not to add too much milk, though.
- Shape into a disk and cover in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours until chilled.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Cut the tops off of the apples, cut a checkered pattern on the ‘meat’ of your apples, leaving the skin and a little boarder on the outside.
- Scoop out the pieces of the inside of the apples and put in a small bowl. Discard the core and seeds.
- Add the 2 teaspoons of sugar and ground cinnamon to the small bowl with the apple pieces. Stir to combine.
- Fill the hollowed apples with the cinnamon sugar covered apple pieces.
- Meanwhile, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut long strips of dough.
- Place the strips of dough into a weaved pattern on top of the apples. Cut excess off.
- Place in a loaf pan covered in parchment paper, spray the tops with olive oil and bake for 30-40 minutes until tender and golden brown.
