My mother, sisters, and I were able to make & can apple sauce and apple pie filling to use throughout the next year. Hurray! We have also made fresh apple pie- Yummy!
Apple Pie Filling Ingredients:
6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (6 medium apples)
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Preheat oven to 425°F. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Press firmly against side and bottom.
Peel, core and slice apples in thin slices.
Top with second crust. Wrap excess top crust under bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal; flute.
Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust. I like to attempt to cut the shape of an apple.
Cover edge of crust with 2- to 3-inch wide strips of foil after first 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning.
Enjoy your yummy for Apple Pie!
