I don’t make my own pie crust. Because who has time for that? Especially during the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving week through New Years. If I’m going to make something from scratch, it wont be a pie crust.
Since I’m vegetarian I buy the Marie Callender brand frozen pie crusts, which come in a set of 2. These crusts don’t have lard in them. Either get this brand, any brand you prefer or make your own if you’re fancy like that.
* 2 Pie Crusts
* 6-7 Medium Apples – I used Gala (peeled, cored and sliced)
* 1/4 Cup Sugar
* 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
* 2 Tablespoons Flour
* 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
* 1/2 Teaspoon Grated Lemon Peel
* 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
* 2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
Toss all the ingredients in a bowl. Sprinkle the apple mixture into the pie crust. Either top completely with the second pie crust cutting slashes or designs in top crust. I used little cookie cut outs that make Turkey and Apple details making a design on top of the pie.
Bake 40-50 minutes in the oven at 425 degrees until the crust is golden. Enjoy!
