Recipe - Apple Pie with Pillsbury Crust


The seasonal fruit for fall is apples, so it no surprise that Pillsbury decided to do a pie crust promotion at this time. Well technically, the promotion was about 2 month ago, and it was the same as the Healthy Choice one, where you just had to like their facebook page to receive a free coupon.

You know what they says, when life hands you apples, you make apple pie :). So that's exactly what I did. After searching around for a good recipes, I decided to use the one from Allrecipes with a slightly variation.
I don't like overly sweet desserts, so I cut down the white sugar to about 1/4 cup. This recipes does not call for any cinnamon or nutmeg, but you can added as you like. Since my mom is not a fan of cinnamon, so this recipe was perfect for me. The pie crust was easy to use, you just had to take it out and unroll, it's that simple. The pie came out nicely. The one thing that I did want to do was a lattice top. Unfortunately I made a big mistake by freezing the pie crust, thus when I unrolled it by force, some part was cracking/breaking, so I had to settle for the cover top crust with a heart vent hole. Although it's not the prettiest looking pie, but everyone who had a piece loved it. The Pillsbury pie crust was quite good, because it was indeed extra flaky as the box stated, without being oily. One little piece of advice for anyone who never made pie before, make sure it cools down before serving, so that the bottom crust won't be soggy. You can always reheated in the microwave. In the end, I do recommend the Pillsbury pie crust, and of course this recipes, because both turn out very delicious.

Great recipe!! I like it the way you pictured the processes step by step. It makes it so easy to follow. Thanks very much for posting. I will definitely give this a try. I usually get the other frozen pie shells but using the Pilsbury pie crust looks even better.

Thanks... I didn't think the Pilsbury pie shell would turn out so well, but it certainly did. :)
