• Kaycee’s Stuffed Apples For Dessert

    KAYCEE COLCLEASUREKaycee Colcleasure is a lot of things: a high school senior, a cheerleader, a basketball player, and an all-around fun person.

    Today she tried her hand at cooking, and I think she’s pretty darned proud or herself for it! She has also very graciously agreed that we might share the success of her stuffed apples with the rest of you.

    Don’t you just love it when young people try something new…and in this day of continual fast food, don’t you just love to see people actually cooking in the kitchen?



    1/2 Pie Crust
    6 Apples
    1 Teaspoon Flour
    1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
    1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
    1/2 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
    1/2 Cup Sugar
    1 Tablespoon Sugar
    1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon


    Preheat oven to 350.

    1. Keep pie crust in fridge.

    2. Cut tops off of washed apples. Hollow out, removing the core.

    3. Place in buttered baking dish.

    4. Peel and slice remaining apples. Dice by hand or give them a quick pulse in the food processor.

    5. Stir lemon juice, flour, pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 cup sugar, and apples together.

    6. Pack apple mixture into hollow apples.

    7. Unroll pie crust. Cut into strips that are about 4 inches long and 1/2 inch wide.

    8. Put 4 strips of crust over each apple, making a lattice.

    9. Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over top of crusts.

    10. Bake until crust is done and apples are soft. Begin checking at 30 minutes.

    11. Serve warm, if possible.
