|Apple Pie made with homemade canned apple pie filling and homemade frozen pie crust.|
Next I walked to the cabinet where I had stored my canned goods and pulled out a quart of the Cinnamon Apple Pie Filling I had canned a few weeks earlier. That recipe is Canning Cinnamon Apple Pie Filling and was given on 8/29/12. This is the first day I opened a jar to try it out! Of course I had tasted it and thought it quite good.
Ingredients for Quick and Easy Apple Pie:
2 pie crusts thawed
1 quart apple pie filling
1 T. butter divided into small portions
Cinnamon and sugar, optional
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Using a lightly floured board and rolling pin roll the first crust to fit a 9" pie plate. Fold the pastry in half or roll it onto the pin and lift it onto the pie plate. Do not trim the edges just set it to the side. Roll the second crust to fit the top. Cut small decorative slits into the top crust to let the steam escape while baking.
Open the filling jar and pour the apples into the prepared pastry lined plate. Dot with the butter evenly across the top.
Lift the second crust across the top of the filling and position. Crimp the edge of the pie crust and trim. Sprinkle the top of the pie with cinnamon and sugar, optional. Bake 40-50 minutes until the filling starts to bubble and the crust browns. Remove from the oven to cool. Yield 6-8 servings.
