But, while we would never expect you to restrain yourself from the beauty that is a Thanksgiving meal, maybe you're looking for slightly healthier options to feast on this holiday.

Basically a crustless apple pie recipe, made for you by BuzzFeed Food editor Christine Byrne.

Recipe: Core 8 medium apples without cutting all the way through to the bottom — leave about a ½-inch of uncut apple at the bottom — then cut away a little bit extra so there’s a well in each apple about ¾-inch thick. Put the apples on a lined baking sheet, then sprinkle each apple with cinnamon and 1 teaspoon brown sugar, and top with 1 teaspoon unsalted butter. Bake until the apple is very soft, 30–35 minutes. Serve warm, topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with your favorite maple granola.
