Cut the tops of the apples off. Then using a melon baller, carefully core out your apple.

Don’t hollow it out too much. You don’t want the apple to fall apart while baking.

Keep the insides of the apple. Remove any sneaky seeds and hard core bits. Then cut the apples into chunks. For the filling I used store bought cherry pie filling. I mixed in the apples and added a dash of cinnamon.

While mixing the pie filling, let the pie crusts defrost. I bought frozen tart shells but you can make you own too.

Fill the pies with lots of cherry filling. Add the crust on top of the apples. You can make lots of different crusts. Even try some cookie cutters like the heart in the picture.

Cover the pies with tin foil and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 40 minutes. Remove the tin foil and bake for another 5-10 minutes until the crust is nice and golden. Serve hot and with vanilla ice cream! Happy Pi Day!!
