1 package of Pillsbury Pie Crust, thaw according to package

6 Granny Smith or Honey Crisp apples, cored and peeled

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice

3 tbsp unsalted butter


1 cup brown sugar

1 stick of unsalted butter

1/2 cup orange juice

1/4 cup water

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl combine the chilled butter, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice until small beads form. Press the brown sugar mixture into the center of each apple.

Take pre-made pie crusts and cut each one into 1/3 equally. Place an apple in the center of the crust and cover completely. Join the crust at the top and seal by dotting with water. Place seam side down in a 9x13 casserole pan.

To make glaze simple boil the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, orange juice and water for 2 minutes. Stirring constantly. Pour into the bottom of the pan around the apples. Place in a hot oven and bake for 50-55 minutes or until crust is browned. Last 5 minutes of baking baste apples with the sauce.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
