Scalloped Ice Cream Sundae Card and a Pie Stuffed Apple

I have been playing around with my scallop punch lately, if you cannot tell. It can make so many cute things. Today's card is a scalloped ice cream sundae. I sent it to my grandma for her birthday.
Below is a recipe for a twist on traditional apple pie. What's the twist?
The pie is inside of the apple.
 
Cool, right?
 
Normal apple pies are so boring and, well, brown. This pie stuffed apple keeps the apple's pretty color and the taste of pie. What could be better?
 
Here is a picture of the pie pre apple stuffing. You can make it in a muffin pan, mini muffin pan, or just shape the pie crust and bake it. Whichever will fit inside of your apple. The bigger the apple, the better this recipe works.
 
Apple Pie in an Apple
makes 6
Crust:
½ cup wheat germ
½ cup oatmeal
½ cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp cornstarch
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 ground cinnamon
1 tbsp honey
1/3 cup milk
2 tbsp cold water
 Filling:
6 apples
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp apple pie spice
¼ cup brown sugar 
Mix together the crust ingredients. Divide it into 6 balls, and either form them into cups that will fit inside the apples or press them into an oiled mini muffin pan. Prick the bottoms of the crust with a fork. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, core the apples. Scoop out the centers, making sure to leave about ¼ inch of the edges intact. (I stored the outsides in the fridge until it was ready to be used.) Finely chop the insides of your apple and mix with the sugar and spices. Microwave for 1 ½ minute. Press the filling into each of your crusts. Bake for another 5 minutes. Remove the crusts and allow them to cool slightly. Push the crusts into the cored apples. Serve with whipped cream, ice cream, or any other apple pie topping.
