need suggestions for coloring pastry dough

I am having a dinner party and making a trio of apple desserts, in honor of autumn. I am making a play on a candy apple with a three layered tower of apple gelee, caramel gelee and sugared almond gelee. Then, apple cider doughnuts with a brandy creme anglaise. Lastly, I wanted to do a play on a traditional double crust apple pie by doing a poached cinnamon apple filling and shaping pastry dough in the form of an apple, but I am having trouble thinking of natural ways to color the pie dough either red or green. I want it to actually look like an apple. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't like using food coloring.
