Personal Notes:
Two (21-oz.) cans apple pie filling can be used if you’re short on time.
The flour tossed with the fresh apples turns their juices into a thickened, spiced sauce during baking. Mix it with the sugar and spices before tossing the mixture with the apples.
Let the pie cool for a while before cutting into it, as the filling will thicken as it cools, making it easier to slice.
To make Caramel-Pecan Apple Pie: right after removing the pie from the oven, drizzle with 1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping. Sprinkle with 2 to 4 tablespoons chopped pecans.
To Freeze Baked Pie: Assemble and bake pie as directed in recipe. Cool completely. Wrap pie tightly with plastic wrap. Place pie in 2-gallon resealable freezer plastic bag; seal. Freeze up to 4 months. To reheat, thaw pie in refrigerator overnight. Remove bag and plastic wrap. . Cover with foil; bake at 350°F 35 to 40 minutes or until warm.
