1 (21 ounce) can
apple pie filling
apple pie spice
I used fresh apples seasoned with nutmeg,cinnamon, and all spice. I added 1 cup sugar and 4tbs butter I then microwaved this mixture for approx 5 min. Then I added flour,egg, baking powder and mixed these like listed with about 1/2c sugar. Combined all and mixed up. Added lemon juice last turned out great. Thank you for the inspiration on this recipe.
The filling was all right, but the crust tasted awful. It was not crumbly nor tasted like biscuit. A huge disappointment.
I love this pie! It tastes like a mix of pancake and cinnamon apple..ness...
This has been my sister's (she's 9) favorite pie since I made it! Easy and quick, so worth a try anyway.
Like many others who posted, I changed it only because I find canned apple pie filling too sweet and not as flavorful as making my own. I sliced up 4 apples (3 honeycrisp and 1 gala) into a pan with 1/2 cup of butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 2.5 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. cloves. After sauteing for about 15 minutes on medium heat, I poured over the crust mixture in the recipe. I took this to my sister's for Thanksgiving and it was a great hit. Other than boiling over in my oven, I was really happy with it. The original recipe did not specify size of pan so I used a 9" pyrex pie pan and it did not accomodate the apple/crust mixture. I'll use a bigger pan next time because I thought the amount of apples was appropriate. Overall, I thought this is a creative way to make an applie pie without having to make a standard pastry crust.
My husband loved it! Very easy and quick to make.
My lactose intolerant friends loved this! They thought the crust was delicious. Now I am going to try it with other fruit fillings as well.
This recipe was very good. It was a nice change to the same old apple pie. I did do it a little different. I used fresh apples and mixed them with some flour and sugar and then microwaved them for 2 minutes to soften them. I also addes a crumb topping on the top of 1/3c of flour and 1/4c of brown sugar with 2TB of melted butter.
I really didn't like this and my husband and kids also thought it was gross. I think it taste really 'eggy' even though there is only one egg in it. If anything is it more like a 'kuchen' breakfast cake than a 'pie.' I had one slice and the rest went in the garbage. At least I got to use up that can of apple pie filling I had in the cupboard. It did look pretty nice and smell good, but the taste and texture were all wrong.
