Syrup Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 cups water
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup butter


Apple Filling Ingredients:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tbs butter, softened
8 medium Granny Smith apples
1 (15 oz.) packages refrigerated pie crusts


1 hour




  1. Combine sugar, water, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add 1/4 cup butter. Set syrup aside.
  2. Combine apple filling ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Mix with a fork until you have a crumb consistency.
  3. Cut each pie crust in half. Form each half into a ball and place on a lightly floured surface. Roll into 8 inch circles.
  4. Place each apple onto the center of each circle and fill the empty core with the crumb filling.
  5. Fold the dough over the apples, pinching at the top to seal. Place each apple in a lightly greased 13″ x 9″ baking dish. Drizzle with the syrup. Bake at 375º F for 40 – 45 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
