I love whipping up a few bags of Freezer Apple Pie Filling in the early fall while making my batches of apple sauce. I’ll already have a pile of peeled and cut up apples so I can knock out two recipes at once! A wonderful attribute of fresh fruit is that it freezes very well and keeps its flavor; by making these in advance you can have fresh fruit flavored pies year round and not have to use anything out of a can. This Freezer Apple Pie Filling is quick, easy, and will best of all will save you time later when you NEED an apple pie (dinner invites, school functions, a day that ends in ‘y’). Multiple variations included to satisfy everyone’s tastebuds.
