Mom's Homemade Apple Pie Filling

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!

Mom's Apple Pie Filling

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!

    What a great idea! This would make a good gift too. I am really looking forward to apples this fall (I'm adding this to my ever-growing list of things to do with apples… not sure there will be enough apples for everything I want to do).

    Now I want pie…

    Looks delicious – question though – how much filling does this make? I'm assuming it should be a pint of filling per pie so I should do this in pint size jars?

    Jen, This makes 7 quarts. 🙂

    Shelby,
    Nothing says fall like Apple Pie. Looks fabulous. I need to challenge myself and make more pies. I love your new fall header.

    Glad Aggie won that magazine. Sad I didn't. Maybe she'll share the copies with me 🙂

    This is a perfect recipe to include in a gift basket for a Christmas gift, perhaps with a pretty pie pan attached. Thanks for the recipe.

    What a great idea, make a bunch during apple season and have a taste of fall all year long! I would definitely have to have some on pancakes, and waffles, and ice cream, and in a bowl and in a pie…. 😉

    Usually I just make and can apple sauce with our apples. I’m not sure why I’ve never made apple pie filling! I’m going to have to try your recipe. Apple Week is so much fun!
