We are officially a week into October! Which means, the weather here in Florida is finally getting the message that it’s Fall. Our temps may still be in the 90’s, BUT we do get a cool breeze every so often. With that being said, we thought it was time to bring out the classics of Fall baking. First stop? Apple pie filling.
This is soooo simple and easy to make. It’s not only a staple with Fall baking, but it is also just absolutely delicious. I have terrible habit of just taking a spoon and eating some of the filling by itself. Shhh. That stays between us. Though, I highly recommend doing it. Nothing is better than freshly made, still warm apple pie filling. It truly gives the sense of Fall.
Growing up in Mississippi, there were always pies during the holidays – pecan pie, chocolate pie, chess pie, etc. But out of everything there was, I always adored the classic apple pie. But this is my family I’m talking about here. My mom cannot and will not leave a recipe alone (that’s definitely not a bad thing). It’s always changing and growing into something more. Which is why our apple pie filling isn’t just for apple pies. We discovered through the years that this stuff can go into anything! In this recipe we decided to make huge batch so throughout the week we could be showing you all the different uses for apple pie filling! From the obvious pies to cookies! There are so many combinations that we can’t wait to share with you so make sure you come back and check our blog every so often to see what you can be making with this. Okay, I’ve babbled enough. Let’s cook!Print
