Thanks Chief. I'm just lately getting interested in rutabagas and the only thing I've done with them so far is cube them and put them in veggie soup.

apple, apples, cinnamon, crust, recipe, sugar

Filled apples with top crust I had a couple of young men at my house last night to learn how to butterfly (spatchcock), and roast a chicken. I also taught them how to make a yummy version of rutabagga, and a side of seasoned rice. While these things were cooking, one of them asked; "What's for desert?" I didn't have anything planned, but had seen this - [url=http://www.food.com/recipe/apple-pie-baked-in-the-apple-507064]Apple Pie Baked In The Apple Recipe - Food.com - 507064[/url] while perusing around on the WWW. So I decided to try them, of course by doing it on the fly. I took four sweet apples, had the young men cut the tops off, then hollow them out with a Tupperware melon baller. We added 1/4 cup of sugar to the apple innards, along with 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon. I stirred that up and set it aside to allow the sugar to pull some of the moisture out of the apples. We made a quick pie crust from 1 cup of flour, plus 1/4 tsp. of salt. The young men were shown how to add lard, a bit at a time, and cut it in until they had the pea-gravel crust. A ouple of tablespoons of cold water was folded into the crust, and the whole thing was rolled out on a floured work surface, again by my students (if you can call them that. I had one of them cut the crust into strips for a lattice crust top. I showed them how a pool of syrup and formed from the macerated apples, and added 2 tbs. of flour to make a thin past. We then added 2 tbs. of butter to the bowl and nuked it for three minutes. The filling was then spooned into the apples, and the crust was laid on top. The apples went onto a wrack, over a pan, and into the convection oven and 350' for 20 minutes. The results looked just like the picture from the link, and tasted really great, just like apple pie, with just enough flaky crust to add texture and crust flavor. I will make this desert again. It is such a great desert. I recommend this recipe to everyone who loves apple pie.
