Apple Pie Filling

Jana here with a yummy recipe for Apple Pie Filling!  This can obviously be used to make a homemade apple pie, but there are many other uses too!  Have any of you ever purchased the apple pie filling in a can?  It's tasty, but this is SO much better!  It will be worth your time to make this.  You could use it as a topping for pancakes or waffles, for a delicious treat on top of ice cream, or in any recipe that calls for apple pie filling. 

Apple Pie Filling

8 medium apples
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour

1. Peel, core, and slice the apples.  Cover with water in a large pot, and heat to boiling.  Then, add 1 tablespoon of butter.

2. Cook the apples until they begin to show slight transparency.  Once this has happened, pour the apples through a strainer, making sure to catch the liquid.

3. Put the liquid back in the pot, and add the sugars and cinnamon.  In a small saucepan, melt the remaining butter. Once melted, whisk in the flour until smooth.  Ladle some of the sugar mixture into the butter/flour, and stir to combine.  Allow this to cook for a couple of minutes to thicken, and then pour back into the large pot. 

4. Add the apples back into the large pot, stirring to combine.
