Apple Pie (in the apple)

Images & Recipe were found here.
Start with the pie dough. Roll the dough between two plastic sheets using chopsticks as guides for an even thickness. Put the sheet of dough on a cutting board and place it in the fridge while working with the apples.

Wash a few apples and cut off a lid from each one. With the help of a small sharp knife and a small spoon, cave the apples to form bowls and then set the chopped pulp aside. To prevent the apples from getting dark, add a few drops of lemon juice.

Next, peel and diced the lids.

For each medium apple you will need:

1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tbsp all purpose flour
1/4 tsp powdered cinnamon

Mix the ingredients and sprinkle over the reserved apple pulp. Toss with a spoon and fill the apple bowls.

Remove the dough from the fridge and cut flowers with a cookie cutter. make some holes to release vapor while baking.

Carefully place a flower over each apple. Don't try to mold the dough, it will be firm and will break. The heat of the oven will take care of that.

Bake at 370°F (190°C) in a baking pan lined with parchment paper until they are tender and the dough is lightly golden (about 40 minutes).

Serve warm or cool, lightly sprinkled with powdered sugar.
