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. NOTE: BECAUSE THE FILLING IS COOKED I RECOMMEND USING IT ON BLIND BAKED PIES.

What is “blind” baking?
Blind baking is a process of baking a pie crust without filling. The “pie weights” help keep the pie dough flat.
Where Can I Use this Homemade Apple Pie Filling?
- Any recipe that requires a can of apple pie filling
- Hand held apple pies (since small pies don’t have to be baked or fried that long this pie filling is perfect)
- Mason Jar Lid Pie
- Apple Pie Cake Roll
- Apple Pie Parfaits
- Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie Pops
- Apple Pie Fruit Dip
- 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.
