Remember in the Fall when I was putting up all those apples and I put up some apple pie filling? I had never done that and wasn’t sure how it would work but I’m convinced that was one of the best things I have ever done. I’ll definitely do it again this Fall. It is so simple to make an apple pie.
Unroll the pie crust (yes, I used a storebought pie crust!). Sprinkle a little tapioca in the pie shell.
Open the jar, stir the filling, dump the filling in the pie shell.
Put the top crust on. Feel just a bit sad that I used a storebought pie crust . . the feeling only lasted about 4 seconds.
Stick that rascal in the oven and let it bake. Serve with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream . . yummmm!
Think how simple it is . . when you’re making a pie, you have to peel and core the apples, get out all the spices, might as well do a bushel of apples at one time and get it over with. Last Fall, I put up 13 quarts so I figured we could have one apple pie per month with one jar to spare. Maybe I’ll put up a few more next year but really, how many apple pies with ice cream can I eat before my jeans no longer zip? I think I reached that point 2 months ago but . . who cares? I love apple pie!
