Apple Pie in a Bag

I have or had a ton of apples. I love apple pie, but don't have the pie plates to store the pies in the freezer. I saw this idea over at Hickory Holler Farm blog and thought it was perfect. This is my recipe for making my apple pie filling.

6 cups apples, peeled, cored and sliced
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt



Mix everything but the apples in a small bowl. Add to the sliced apples and mix well.


I'll admit that I stole a couple of slices of apples like this. Soo yummy!

Once mixed, label and add to a gallon sized freezer bag. Freeze until ready to cook.


When you are ready to make a pie, simple thaw in either your fridge over night or on the counter for about an hour. Add to your pie plate lined with crust. Sprinkle some lemon juice and dot with butter. Add remaining crust on the top and bake at 425°F. To prevent over browning of the edges of the pie, cover the edges in foil. Bake the pie for 20 minutes, then remove the foil and bake another 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

  1. Clever technique, I would never have thought to freeze apple pie filling! How's the texture of the apples when thawed? Thank you for sharing with the Clever Chicks Blog Hop! I hope you’ll join us again next week!
