Using Home-canned Apple Pie Filling: 3/18/23

I needed a desert to take to someone, so I went to my pantry and pulled out apple pie filling ... home-canned apple pie filling to be exact.

Here's what I did with it ...

I dumped the apple pie filling into a disposable pan and then mixed the following for the topping ...

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup old fashioned rolled oats

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 1/4 tsp apple pie spice seasoning

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup cold cubed butter

I spread the topping over the apple pie filling and baked uncovered in the oven for 30 minutes @ 400 degrees until it started bubbling and the top was golden brown around the edges.

Let me warn you about the smell that will permeate your house, all I can say is it was a good thing this desert was for someone else!  Both my husband and I kept commenting on how good it smelt!

This is such an easy way to make a delicious desert!  It's a real good reason to keep apple pie filling in your pantry too!

One more thing, I added a post over on my other blog, From This Heart of Mine, on Psalm 119:18, I hope it encourages you in your spiritual walk.

Until tomorrow ...

  1. One of our favorites! Sadly all we have left is applesauce. I am going to be poking around looking for a pie to make soon because the salvage store supplied our freezer with two packs of organic pie crusts for 99 cents each yesterday. Right now we are doing a big pantry shuffle bringing nonperishable foods down from upstairs to resupply the kitchen. I am so thankful to have all these foods bought for great deals to resupply.

    1. Lana, that's a great deal on the pie crusts! I can't remember when I've been so thankful for a well-stocked pantry. All the hard work is paying off in that we aren't having to pay these exorbitant prices in order to put food on the table.
