With an abundance of fresh fall apples on hand from a recent apple-picking trip with the family, I thought I’d share one of my favorite ways to enjoy the bounty of the season with you and my friends over at For the Family.
This simple, yet delicious apple pie filling is naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup and just a hint of vanilla. Funny thing is, we rarely use this classic fall favorite for making pies.
Want to know some of the delicious ways we like to enjoy it? Then be sure to join me over at For the Family today where I’m sharing my special, fall-inspired “Naturally Sweetened Apple Pie Filling“ recipe and lots of fun ways to use it!
Happy Fall Blessings, Kelly
Very good! I used it for an apple pie filling with almond flour pie crust. The sauce was a little too watery for a pie filling. Maybe I could add some gelatin next time. I used it anyway and it was still delicious!
Thanks, Mindy, for your kind words and feedback! I should have noted in the recipe, that if using for a pie filling, strain away some of the liquid before placing in your crust. This is especially true with almond flour as it will get soggy. Thanks for the reminder! Blessings, Kelly 🙂
Thanks, Kelly! I did drain off some of the liquid. It was delicious! I made two almond flour pie crusts and used one as the base and the other to crumble on top, so it was more of a cobbler. I have left over apple filling, which will be gone by breakfast tomorrow! I might just leave out the bottom crust next time and add some sliced almonds to the “crumble” on top.
Do you think I should add a little gelatin or more arrowroot if I want to get more of a sticky texture in the liquid? I thought that might be good when I want to use it as a pie filling. I have to stop typing because I’m getting hungry! 🙂
No worries (wink) see above fix. Yes, I bet gelatin would be a better fix to make it less liquidy. Arrowroot will thicken it but too much arrowroot makes liquid goopy. Hopefully I’m making since. 🙂
🙂 Love it! wink!
Finishing the last of my cobbler for breakfast!
