Pumpkin Pie Stuffed Baked Apples — Two desserts in one fall holiday-worthy recipe! A gluten-free and vegan treat that’s perfect for Thanksgiving.
Let’s face it, I am the most indecisive person I know. I’m a Libra, so I have the authority to say that. It’s in my blood.
If you’re looking to go anywhere or do anything in the next 4-6 hours, don’t leave me in charge of choosing. I won’t disappoint in leaving you hanging.
Which also applies when it comes to desserts. Especially Thanksgiving desserts. I am the one who will proudly take but one spoonful of each dessert there is, simply because I can’t make up my mind on one.
I’m also the one who loves apple and pumpkin pie just the same..and also hates all pie crusts just the same. Graham cracker, lattice top, tender, tough, I don’t discriminate.
I’ve already shared my undying love of baked apples, so much that I made it for breakfast. And added candied ginger to the easiest apple crisp of my LIFE. But let’s face the music, if they’re good enough for breakfast, they’re good enough for pumpkin.
So I stuffed those suckas full of sugar, spice, and well like….pumpkin.
- Use apples that are good for baking such as gala, braeburn, or Granny Smith for the best texture.
- Evaporated milk can be used in place of coconut milk.
- Add candied ginger to the streusel topping for an added kick of spice and sweetness.
