Apple Crisp in an Apple

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and had to make it. Boy I was not disappointed! It's fast, easy to make and pretty inside those apples! Oh, plus they are good portion sizes, just enough. Seriously, make this if you're wanting dessert. I've made this 2 times now and took pictures both times so I had plenty to choose from. haha

The recipe is not mine so I am posting off the BLOG I got it from. Her pictures are also better than mine. Ha. But it's just too yummy not to post. I did sub einkorn flour for the regular flour and it was awesome. 


All of the sweet and caramely goodness of a traditional apple crisp, stuffed and baked inside fresh Autumn apples with the best crumble topping. Top it off with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce for an incredible fall treat everyone will go crazy for!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4
  • 8 apples (I used fugi and golden delicious..either is great)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
crumble topping
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ cup oats
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter, chilled and cut into cubes
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. First, prepare the crumble topping. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, oats, brown sugar, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Cut in the butter with a pastry knife, or two forks, or with your hands until mixture is crumbly. Set aside.
  3. Peel and chop 4 of the apples. Add chopped apples, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon to a medium sauce pan and sauté over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from heat.
  4. Chop the tops off of the remaining 4 apples and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh. Discard the flesh. You don't need to get every little bit out, just enough to make a "bowl" for the filling.
  5. Fill scooped-out apples with apple filling from the sauce pan. Top with a generous amount of crumble topping.
  6. Place stuffed apples on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until crumble topping is crispy. Serve warm and top with ice cream and caramel sauce if desired. Enjoy!
