I love my mom’s apple pie. Well, let’s face it. I love apple pie period! However, nothing is ever more special than when it is made by mom’s hands. Today I am sharing with you my mom’s recipe for Mom’s Apple Pie Filling that she makes a big batch of and cans for future use. I love it so much, that I am sharing it with you for #AppleWeek this year!
This is a newer recipe from my mom that she shared with me. I love to make and have Apple Pie in a Jar to have on hand throughout the year.
Mom’s Apple Pie Filling also works great in other recipes. I use it to make Apple Fritters, to top pancakes, and even over ice cream!
However, I still think our favorite way to use it is in the traditional apple pie! When I made this pie it was simple as could be. I rolled out a pre-made pie crust, poured in the filling, made a crumble topping and baked at 350 until done! If you have apples this fall that you are looking to do something different with, well this is a great idea!
How would you use this filling? Be sure to check out the rest of this week’s awesome apple recipes!
