Homemade Apple Pie Filling | It’s apple season and that means apple pie! This easy to make pie filling is not just for pie. It also makes the perfect topping on ice cream, pancakes or waffles. I love adding it to muffins, coffee cakes and breads. Don’t forget about no bake desserts and parfaits! There’s so many things you can do with this pie filling.
Make this filling in multiple batches and freeze it! Give the filling away to family and friends when they come to visit! I don’t know about you but this is one gift I would LOVE to receive!
You can use most apples for this filling but I found the best is Granny Smith. Sometimes I use multiple varieties to get an assortment of flavors and textures.

Homemade Apple Pie Filling
- 6 large Granny Smith apples (about 12 cups) peeled, cored and sliced
- 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 6 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/3 cup water
In a large saucepan add the apples, sugars, flour, cinnamon, salt, butter and water. Stir to combine. On med high heat cook until butter is melted. Turn heat down to medium low and simmer 3-5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and apples are tender but still crisp. Pour into a jar or container with an air tight lid and store in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
If Freezing: Cool completely, pour into a freezer safe zip top bag. Place flat in the freezer until completely frozen and then you can store the filling upright like a book.
