Apple pie is one of our favorite fall desserts. From a classic deep dish, to the addition of berries, caramel drizzle topping and even chocolate, we've seen a lot of apple pie variations.

But none are as adorable as this — an apple pie baked in an apple! We're pretty sure apple pie couldn't get any better if it tried. Here's how to do it.

Just 4 Ingredients!

Not only is this individual-sized apple on apple dessert the cutest thing you'll see this fall, it's also super easy to make.

I found the idea for these apple pies on Tablespoon. With an easy to follow tutorial and short ingredient list, I had to try this for myself!

How to Make an Apple Pie Baked in an Apple

These lattice pies look like they should be much more involved and time consuming to make than they actually are. Here's all you need:

  • An apple
  • Canned apple pie filling
  • Cinnamon
  • Store-bought pie crust

Get started by slicing the top off each apple and scooping out the inside (I found that a paring knife and spoon worked best for this step). Mix together the apple pie filling with a little bit of cinnamon, then spoon it into each apple.

Cut the defrosted pie crust into thin strips and create a lattice topping over each apple, then trim any excess dough.

Bake for about 25 minutes at 400°F, and you've got yourself a beautiful and delicious individual apple pie. Don't forget the whipped cream and vanilla ice cream!

And of course, if you have the time you can also make your own pie crust and apple pie filling; it would be even better with those!
