    Heat oven to 375°F. Line baking pan with sides with silicone baking mat.
  • 2
    Cut tops off apples. Using spoon, hollow out apples, leaving approximately 1/2-inch shell. Squeeze lemon juice into each apple as it’s hollowed out to prevent discoloration.
  • 3
    Place apples on baking pan. Spoon 1/4 cup apple pie filling into each apple.
  • 4
    Unroll pie crust on work surface. Using decorative cookie cutter (we used 4x2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter), cut 6 shapes out of crust. Cut a small opening in each to allow for venting.
  • 5
    Place cutouts on apples. Using a pastry brush, brush each with egg wash.
  • 6
    Bake about 30 minutes or until crust is golden and apples are tender. Cool about 15 minutes.
