Apple Pie

The First Pie Of The Season!
 "Autumn is a second Spring when every leaf is a flower."
Autumn is my fave part of year. Scarfs come out, warm drinks are enjoyed, and cuddling feels extra cozy. This Pie is made for all of the Autumn cuddlers. 

How it's made:
1 Box of Gluten Free Pantry pie crust
2 cans of Libby's  Apple Pie Filling

This time I cheated! I used not one thing from scratch. I used the boxed Gluten Free Pantry pie crust and followed directions. I used allot less shortening then it asked for and it turned out just fine. My friend Elvia and I cut out the pie "crust" with little leaf cookie cutters and layered them on the top making sure to seal the edges. I added cream to the top . Cream will give a medium golden look to the top (Will not shine but gluten free doesn't anyways). I then sprinkled a little sugar on the top.

I used 2 of Libby's canned apples and just added a bit of Allspice and Cinnamon.

Put them together and baked it at 425 degrees for about 45 mins. 

Gluten free crust is pretty much like dealing with really thick mashed potatoes. That's why I cut the top into little leafs. Its allot easier then trying to roll it out and magically place it on top.

Was it yummy?
Yes it was but never as good as anything made from scratch.

The first of many pies this year.
