God Bless Pillsbury

I've always taken pride in my pies, making the crust from scratch and making my own fillings.
But I can't do what I used to do, so I've decided it's time to roll with the changes.
This morning, I unrolled my Pillsbury crust, and opened 3 cans of Wilderness Apple Pie filling. I seasoned the fillling with a little more sugar, lemon juice, and Cinnamon plus, from Pampered Chef.
They are out of the oven now, and smell and look divine.

So, thank you Pillsbury, for making my life easier!

Hey, my wife does it all the time. Who has time to make pie crust nowadays.
Actually the best apple pie I have ever had camefrom frozen section of Sam's club one year. I wish they'd bring it back. It was so amasingly good, I can't even begin to describe.

I just wanted to let you guys know that the pies turned out great. I think my grandma would have used these pie crusts if she'd had them.

Constance, I couldnt even be bothered to make a pie for this holiday. I do like making home-made crusts, but they take time and lots of efforts. I say Horray to Pillsbury pie crust! And the apple filling you added ( and tweaked). Good for you!

Your pie sounds so good. I can't let a Thanksgiving go by without mince meat pie. Of course my mothers homemade was the best. Now that she is gone I buy a ready made one at our local HyVee bakery. It's not too bad.

I love mince meat pie, My mom makes it at Christmas
I from a family of 8 kids and there is only 3 plus parents who like it -so my mother makes little tarts instead of a pie. I like them better. Although you tend to eat more of them. But what the heck it the holidays right.
One year for her birthday when mincemeat was suddenly was high price she said she wasn't buying it that year and when we all heard that the 3 us went out and 3 brought jars not knowing each of us were going to and gave it to her. Her comment was " I guess I Making tarts" with a big smile. HMMM maybe that was hint to us kids, We would do it again. Can't break tradition.

The Pillsbury pie crusts are great. I use them for making a breakfast pie with eggs, cheese and breakfast meat. Works like a charm, and tastes great!

The first time I used these pie crusts I got so many compliments - I was even asked for the recipe!

Connie,
when my hands act up like they were after all the slicing and chopping for dressing and stuffed onions and making the things we always have at Thanksgiving, by the time i got to mixing the stuffing and crimping the pie crusts, I couldn't roll out the crust or even stir the dressing. Everytime I'd press down it was like someone jabbed me with an icepick! DH ended up stirring the stuffing and I showed him how to crimp the pie crusts for me. Poor guy said he felt like he was all thumbs I used the pillsbury pie crusts and there was no pie leftover!!
Glad to hear you pies were a hit, your recipe idea sounded really yummy.
