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 year we have been given several bushels of apples. I dehydrate them so I tired of that and thought apple pie filling or topping. But canned apple pie filling is runny. I searched and found an ingredient that would jel and that is Clear Jel/gel. No corn starch but nice thick filling. I get it at MySpicer.com in the 5 pound bag and use it in gravies, sauces and other things I can like beef tips and gravy. It goes through canning and would go through freezing. Not Sure Jell that makes jams but Clear Gel.
I halved the recipe and made up 2 gallon bags. It was thick, but not too much. I'm looking forward to making pies. I did taste and it is yummy. Thanks!
Great recipe! Easy to make and I halved it.
Thanks for a great recipe! I made several bags of these apples for the Boy Scouts to use in cobblers for a local festival. I don't know how many samples of apple cobbler they handed out but people kept coming back for more and many declared our Scouts had the best tasting cobbler at the festival.
I really liked this recipe but I thought it could have used more apples. Not sure how long it lasts, I have to try some that are left over in the freezer yet.
What a great idea! I froze 3 and made one right away with a crumble topping. So yummy! Thanks for posting.
