Apple Pie Baked Apples

1/2 recipe homemade pie crust1
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 Tablespoon (15ml) warm water
5 large, perfectly round and firm apples (I prefer Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 teaspoon milk
homemade salted caramel sauce, for drizzling (optional)

Prepare the pie crust, including allowing it to chill for at least 2 hours. I usually prepare it the night before and leave it in the refrigerator until the next day when it's time to begin the apples. The colder the pie crust, the better.
Make the apple filling: In a very small bowl, mix the cornstarch and warm water together until smooth, creamy, and the cornstarch has disolved. Set aside. Peel and dice 1 apple. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook the apple pieces, cornstarch/water mixture, cinnamon, and sugar. Stir constantly for 5 minutes. Switch to low heat and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in the vanilla, and allow to cool off for 20 minutes.
Assemble: On a floured work surface, roll out the pie dough. Turn the dough about a quarter turn after every few rolls until you have a circle 10-11 inches in diameter. Cut into fourths, as if you were cutting a pizza. (Pizza cutter works best here!) Then, cut each quarter into 1/4-inch wide strips. I like to chill the strips as I cut out the apples. I suggest putting them on a large cutting board and placing in the fridge. Remember, you always want your pie dough to be COLD.
Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
Slice off the tops of the 4 remaining apples. Using a spoon (or melon baller), dig out the core. It doesn't have to look perfect. Spoon the prepared apple filling into the cored-out apples. You may have some filling leftover - it's great warmed up over vanilla ice cream. Lay 3-4 strips of the pie dough on top of the apple. Then, working with one new strip at a time, alternate weaving it over and under the dough strips already in place. Repeat until the top of the apple has been covered in this lattice style crust. Using a sharp paring knife, trim excess pie crust around the edges. Repeat with remaining apples and pie dough strips.
Place apples into an 8-inch or 9-inch square baking pan or pie dish-- really any size baking pan works. In a small dish, whisk the egg and milk together. Lightly brush the tops with egg wash. I sprinkled a little bit of cinnamon on top of the egg wash before going into the oven- this is optional. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is browned and the filling is bubbly. Yield: 4 apples
If desired, drizzle each with salted caramel. We ate ours with a knife and fork and vanilla ice cream on the side. These apples are best enjoyed immediately. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Recipe Notes:You need 1 (one) pie crust per four apples. This homemade pie crust recipe makes 2 crusts. I suggest making it all and freezing the other dough (for up to 3 months) to make your favorite pie at a later time.

Apple Cobbler for Two

Filling:

1 large Honeycrisp or 2 Gala apples (about 12z), peeled, cored and cut into 1/4-inch pieces (2 generous cups)
2 heaping tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 tablespoon cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

Cream Biscuit Topping:

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
Heaping 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch fine salt
2 teaspoons sugar
3 tablespoons heavy cream

2 small scoops vanilla ice cream, for serving.
Special equipment: Two 6-ounce, 3 1/2-inch ramekins

For the filling: Preheat the oven to 400°F. Toss the apples with 2 heaping tablespoons of the sugar, the flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the butter, and toss. Divide the filling between two 6-ounce, 3 1/2-inch ramekins, tent each loosely with foil and bake until the apples are tender and the juice is bubbling, about 35 minutes. Remove the ramekins from the oven, remove the foil, give the apples barely a stir with a fork and press the top into the juices.

For the topping: Whisk together the flour, the baking powder, salt and 1 teaspoon of the sugar in a small bowl. Quickly stir in the heavy cream, then work the dough with your fingers as if you were working butter into pie dough, to make moist, slightly flattened chunks of dough.

Top each ramekin with dough, dividing evenly. Sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoon of the remaining sugar, and bake until the topping is browned and crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool slightly, top with ice cream and serve. From Food Network Kitchen

Apple Tart

1/2 recipe pastry (see below)
5 large apples
1/4 cup sugar
3 tbs. butter, cut into small pieces
4 tbs. apricot preserves
1 tbs. Calvados or Cognac (optional)

Make the pastry or you can use a ready made pastry.
Roll out the dough 1/8 to 1/16 inch thick, in a shape that fits a pizza pan.
Peel and cut the apples into 1/4-inch slices. Arrange the slices around the dough beginning at the outside,
approximately 1 1/2 inches from the edge. Stagger and overlap the slices to imitate the petals of a flower.
Cover the dough completely with a single layers of apples.
Place smaller slices in the center to resemble the heart of the flower.
Bring up the border of the dough and fold it over the apples.
Sprinkle the apples with sugar and pieces of butter, and bake in a 400°F oven for 65 to 75 minutes,
until the tart is really browned and crusty. Slide it onto a dish.
Dilute the apricot preserves with the alcohol (or use 1 tbs. of water
if the jam is to thick and you prefer not to use spirits) and spread it on top of the apples with the back of a spoon. Some can also be spread on the top edge of the crust.

Pastry:
3 level cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sweet butter, cold, and cut with a knife into thin slices
1/2 tsp. salt
Approximately 3/4 cup very cold water

Mix the flour, butter, and salt together very lightly, so that the pieces of butter remain visible throughout the flour.
(Hint: The flour and butter must be worked and the water added as fast as possible to obtain a flaky pastry)
Add the ice-cold water and mix very fast with your hands just enough that the dough coheres. Cut the dough in half.
The pieces of butter should still be visible. Refrigerate for 1 or 2 hours or use it right away.
If you use it right away, the butter will be a bit soft, so you may need a little extra flour in the rolling
process to absorb it. Roll as explained above. Serve the tart lukewarm, cut into wedges. Source: Marla
