In the fall, when apples are abundant and cheap, Kathy cut them up and put them in a pie plate. She added the seasonings. I use sugar, cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. Then she popped it all in the freezer. ~
Once it's frozen solid in the shape of a pie plate, slide the filling out into a freezer bag and pop it back in the freezer.
When you want to make a pie, you just slide the frozen filling onto your bottom pastry. ~
Add your top crust and give the apples 15 or 20 mins. to thaw. ~
Bake as you normally would. Yee haw, we have pie! ~
If you know any cute cowboys, you can send them on over here and I'll feed them all the pie they can handle!
