Apple Pie Apples!

One of my favorite things to bake in the Fall is Apple Pie.  This year I decided to do something a little different and make Apple Pie Apples.

My favorite apple is a Honey Crisp!  Oh my, they are the best and you can only get them in the fall, so every year I stock up.  I usually have at least one everyday and use the rest for baking.  They are more expensive, but oh so worth every penny spent.  Apple Pie Apples ~5 steps

 Apple Pie Apples- Baked apples

The verdict was a keeper on this one.  I only made 4, one for each of us.  The youngest ate his brothers, so they must of been good.  Me, Mr. DD and the youngest ate ours the moment they came out of the oven.  I wrapped up the last one to save and the youngest asked me about it the next day.  Is Mack going to eat his apple, I told him to ask his brother.  It was gone the next day so I assumed Mack ate it, but I found out the true story.  He never knew I made these, nor did his brother ask if he could have his apple.

My favorite thing about his recipe was that you could really taste the natural apple flavor instead of all filling and crust.  I will have to make them again so Mack can try this recipe.  He is the picky one, so if it passes his test, you know it is good!  

What is your favorite kind of pie for the Fall season?
