This is a wonderful apple pie filling that you make in the fall when apples are in abundance. During the winter months, just pull a package of pie filling from the freezer, defrost, and pour into your favorite pie crust. This makes enough filling for 4 pies.

Wonderful. I loved this pie, I made up the filling, put most of it in 4 single pie crusts, I ran out of flour, the rest went into a pie plate to freeze and to be put in a pie crust later. I made up one tonight for dessert with a crumb topping and it was yummy, the filling stayed together, didn't run all over the plate. The only changes I made is I used ginger, nutmeg, cloves and allspice instead of just nutmeg and putting in into pie crusts. I will top then when I pick up some more flour. I can't wait to eat it again. I made another batch of this with gala apples, I used the full amount of cinnamon and nutmeg but added 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp cloves and 1/4 tsp allspice to the mixture. The filling tasted awesome. This time I got 6 pies. Four are topped with crusts 1 with crumb topping, the last one with crumb topping but with added oatmeal.

I just baked one, 375 F for 1 hr and 10 minutes. Came out perfect, no running mess.

Made this yesterday with pears instead of apples, decreased sugar to 3 cups. Have to say it was fantastic. Only used 1/2 of the pears I had on hand since I wasn't sure how it would come out. Today I'm going to do the rest! Thanks for the recipe!!!

This had a great taste but i really wanted more texture (apple bits) I made a cruble and i will be trying this again but maybe not cooking the apples for so long.
