Apple Slices Recipe

Every fall my mom bakes one of our family's favorite desserts, apple slices. Since we had some many apples left over from apple picking, I thought it was time I tried the recipe for myself. I was happy to find out that these tasty treats are super easy to make. The ingredients read as follows:

3 lbs Apples (about 8 or 9 small-medium apples. My Mom suggests granny smith, but I just used an assortment of apples that my roommate had picked, and it turned out delicious.
2 packages rolled pie crusts (Note: each package has two crusts) You can find this in the grocery store where Pillsbury biscuits are found.
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 1/2 tbsp flour

And for the glaze...

1 cup powedered sugar
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp milk

To start off, press two the four pie crusts into a 9x13 baking dish. Next, peel and slice the apples. Mix in the sugar, cinnamon, and flour, then scoop the entire mixture into the pan with the pie crusts. Take the remaining two crusts and mold over the top of the apple mixture. Place in the oven at 350 for 50-60 minutes, or until golden brown.

Let it sit for a little bit, then pour on the glaze. You can serve immediately, but I personally prefer the slices cold.

  1. We made and put up chunky applesauce out of the remainder of our apples. Do you think it would work to use that instead of fresh apples?

    This looks yummy! Thanks for sharing. :-)
