When Your Too Lazy to Make a Whole Apple Pie...


Fall is just around the corner and that thought brings Apple Pie to mind, but I hate to make pies, so this recipe works just fine for me and it is so good. 

Easy Apple Pie Foldovers

1 1/2 c thinly sliced, peeled apples (1 1/2 medium)
1/4 c    packed brown sugar
2 tb.     water
1 ts.      lemon juice
1 tb      all-purpose flour
1 tb      granulated sugar
1/4 ts    salt
1 tb      butter or margarine
1/2 ts   vanilla
1 box   Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts
1          egg

In 2-quart saucepan, mix apples, brown sugar, 1 tb of the water and the lemon juice.  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bubbly.  Reduce heat to low; cover and cook 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender.

In small bowl, mix flour, granulated sugar and salt.  Gradually stir into apple mixture, cooking and stirring until mixture thickens.  Remove from heat; stir in butter and vanilla.  Cool 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat oven to 375 degreesF.  Let pie crust pouch stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Remove pie crust from pouch; unroll crust on ungreased cookie sheet.  Spoon cooled fruit mixture evenly onto half of crust to within 1/2 inch of edge.

In small bowl, beat egg and 1 tb water; brush over edge of crust.  Fold untopped half of crust over apple mixture; firmly press edge to seal.  Flute edge; cut small slits in several places in top crust.  Brush top with remaining egg mixture.

Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown.  Serve warm or cool.  

Makes 4 good sized foldovers.
