Homemade Apple Pie Filling
We have been making quite a few fall apple recipes to share with you this past few weeks. My Caramel Apple Pie Cookies have been so VERY popular on Facebook and Pinterest. I have to admit they were are favorite recipe we have made so far. Our Apple Pie Fries were a sure hit with the kids.
I usually purchase store bought apple pie filling for fall recipes. Sometimes convenience is needed. Since I plan to make quite a few more apple recipes, I figured it was time to make some Homemade Apple Pie Filling. It is so super simple and tastes so much better. I figured if I just made up a few batches, I can use them to make a couple more tasty desserts.
Making homemade pie filling is so super easy. Store bought pie filling is great when you are in a pinch. Homemade pie filling always has so much more flavor and smells awesome when it is cooking.
I bought a bunch of fresh apples this past week so with just a few ingredients from my pantry and a little bit of time, I had quite a bit of homemade apple filling (about 24 ounces).
4 cup sliced, peeled Apples
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Sugar
3 tbsp Cornstarch
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 cup warm Water
Place apple slices in bowl.
Add 3/4 cup water and lemon juice and toss to prevent browning.
In a saucepan, whisk together cornstarch and 1/4 cup water until blended.
Add cinnamon, sugar and nutmeg. Whisk until blended.
Add contents of apple slice bowl to saucepan and cook over low heat until apples are tender.
Allow to cool before putting in crust.
Do you make homemade pie filling or do you usually purchase store bought?
