APPLE Pie FILLING

Hello friends!! This past weekend I went apple picking because tis’ the season 🙂 All I could think about when I was picking all those apples was all that I could make with them. I was thinking apple pie pizza (similar to the Cici’s one I used to LOVE growing up), apple crumble (ala mode of course), and I was thinking about APPLE FRITTERS (recipe on blog!). And with all of these I realized I’d need some apple pie filling. So I present to you the BEST apple pie filling (I’ve ever made 😉 ). Hope y’all enjoy ala mode of course!

Ingredients: (Makes about 4 cups of filling)

  • 3/4 cup room temperature butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup regular sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup apple butter
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 tspn cinnamon
  • 1/4 tspn pumpkin pie spice (I used my homemade chai masala)
  • 1 tspn vanilla extract
  • 2 tbspns cornstarch
  • 6 cups cut apples (about 5-6 medium to small apples)

Directions:

  1. Melt the butter and sugars (brown and regular) in a saucepan on medium heat.
  2. Once the sugar has melted. Add in the maple syrup, apple butter, and whole milk. Stir together to ensure that it’s a homogeneous mixture. This takes a few minutes on medium heat. Remember to stir frequently so that the mixture doesn’t burn.
  3. Once the mixture has come to a boil and emulsified together add in the cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract. Stir to combine.
  4. Add in the cornstarch and whisk to ensure there are no clumps and that the mixture is a nice silky liquid.
  5. Add in the cut apples to the mixture.
  6. Let the mixture cook down on low-medium heat for 30-40 minutes (with a top on the sauce pan) stirring every few minutes to ensure the mixture doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Alternatively, you can pour the mixture into a crock-pot and let the mixture cook for 1.5- 2 hours on low heat (stirring occasionally to ensure no burning).
  7. Let the mixture cool to room temperature and enjoy!
