Did you can up some Apple Pie Filling this year or do you plan to? You are definitely going to want some canned apple pie filling desserts recipes to go with all that goodness! I’ve got a couple great recipes to share with you today.
Canned Apple Pie Filling Desserts
Canned Apple Pie Filling is so handy to have in your pantry. If you canned peach pie filling, pear pie filling, or anything else similar, these recipes will also work for you.
Easy Apple Pie
It’s always nice to be able to throw together an amazing dessert in no time but make it look like it took you all afternoon! If you can apple pie filling this recipe is a snap, and if you just can plain apples this recipe is still quite easy.
What You Need:
- 2 c. all-purpose flour (could use white wheat or half wheat instead)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 c. plus 2 tablespoons butter
- 4 to 6 tablespoons cold water
In a bowl, mix together the flour and salt. Cut in the cold butter with a fork until semi-blended. Add in the cold water until the mixture forms a dough. Cut the dough into 2 balls and grease the bottom a pie plate. Press one of the dough balls into the bottom of the pie plate and up the sides to form part of the crust. Roll out the other half and save to place on top of the pie after you make your filling.
- 1 quart apple pie filling OR 1 quart canned apples
If you use plain canned apples you will need:
- 1/2 cup sugar (unless you have some added to your canned apples)
- ¼ c. all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons butter
Mix the filling ingredients together and pour on top of the bottom pie crust. Top with the second crust dough. Cut slits in the top crust so the steam can escape. Bake at 425 degrees for 45 – 50 minutes or until bubbly and brown. You may want to place tin foil over the edges of the pie crust for the first 30 minutes of baking so it doesn’t get overdone.
Apple Crisp in a Jar
What You Need:
- ¼ cup sugar
- ¼ cup flour (can be gluten free all purpose flour)
- 4 Tablespoons old fashioned oats
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- Cooked or canned apples or canned apple pie filling
In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, oats, and butter. (Easiest to mix with a fork.)
In the clean jars, add the cooked apples to make them fill up about halfway.
Divide the oat/flour mixture among the tops of the jars to make them about ¾ of the way full between the 2 mixtures.
Fill a large sided baking dish up about halfway with warm water. Place the jars into this dish before baking. Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes or until the apples are bubbly.
What You Need:
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup canned apple pie filling
Cook all ingredients together on the stove top until the oats are cooked to your liking. For a dessert, serve with a bit of whipped cream.
