However, occasionally I do like a good pie. I have a strong aversion to store bought pie crust. It always tastes like plastic. Does anyone else feel this way?
Pies are a hard thing to master from a baking stand point. Especially the crust. I was scouring the Internet for a quick and easy pie crust recipe and came across this little gem of a recipe.
It is fantastic!! Super easy, and so so good!
**Now, please do not think you can achieve good results with a can of Mott's or other store brand applesauce. Granted, I've never tried it that way. We've always used homemade. If you don't have homemade applesauce sitting on your shelf, or a Mom like mine who brings you some, I'm sure you could find some somewhere. Or even make it; applesauce (from what I hear) is a pretty easy thing to make.
Here's the recipe for Applesauce Pie:
Make pie crust (or use store bought; your preference)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
For filling, mix together:
1 pint apple/pearsauce
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
Pour into unbaked pie crust shell.
For topping, mix together:
3/4 c flour
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c sliced thin butter
Crumble/mix and spoon on top.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 25-30 minutes. You can put foil on top the last 5-10 to keep it from browning too much.
This is a really easy, really fast pie to make if you have company coming or just want to satisfy that apple/cinnamon craving. Enjoy!
