    Wow...those look exceptional. I'd imagine they're a lil more healthy since its lacking the bottom crust. How'd they come out?
    Just a hack that makes some **** BBQ...

    How did you carve out the apples? That looks awsome. Mmmm...

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    To carve out the apples, I just sliced off the top, then used a paring knife to cut around the inside, leaving about 1/4 inch of apple.  Used a teaspoon to scoop and finish carving out.  A melon baller may work better because it is sharper than a spoon, but I couldn't find it in the drawer.

    They were great with a little vanilla ice cream.  The pie filling turned out perfect, the apple itself could have gone 5 more minutes on the Egg.  Everyone still ate all of it and no one complained.  A big hit.

    When I made mine, I just used enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Maybe an 1/8-1/4 inch.
