Apple Mugs: (Like the picture at the top)
- Cut the tops off of 8 very large apples (about 3 1/2- to 4-inches in diameter).
- Press 2 1/2-inch ice cream scoop into the cut surface of apple to to form and edge about 1/2 inch thick around the edges of the apples.
- Use a melon baller to scoop out the center of apples, taking care not to scoop out too close to the bottom and sides of apples. If desired, brush inside “mugs” with lemon juice to prevent browning.
