                         dough:
    1      cup           all purpose flour
    1      tsp           cinnamon
      1/4  tsp           salt
    2      tbl           butter
    1      tbl           shortening
      1/4  cup           apple juice or apple cider
                         filling:
    4      tbl           butter
      1/4  cup           brown sugar
      1/2  cup           crushed gingersnaps
      1/4  cup           ground pecans
    1      tbl           Grand Mariner
    1      tsp           cinnamon
 
 
 Mix flour, cinnamon, salt, butter and shortening until a crumbly mixture forms.
 Add in the juice slowly, until a smooth dough forms.
 Melt butter, and mix the rest of the ingredients into it.
 
 Putting it all together: Core 3/4 of an apple (preferably a Granny Smith) making
 sure that there is plenty of room for the filling. Roll out the dough, the
 thinner the better. Wrap dough around the apple. Squeeze off the excess and
 create leaves for the top of the apple with the extra. Bake at 350 degrees for
 approximately 20 minutes until dough becomes a light to golden brown. It will
 not get too dark so definitely keep checking on it.
 
 The dough recipe should yield enough for two apples. To make a stem for the
 apple use a small piece of cinnamon stick
