Freezer Apple Pie filling ready to bake one delicious pie or make mini pies! The filling is conveniently stored in a Vacuum Sealing System by FoodSaver®.
Disclosure: I received free product for the purpose of this review. All opinions are honest and reflect my own experiences with the product.
When I received this FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing System, I was so excited to see a familiar product with added features like a separate hose with a port used with FoodSaver® containers, and extra- wide rolls of bags that can be cut to the size you need!
For years I’ve used a much older FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing model to keep lunch meat fresh and cheese mold free! I’ve been able to buy some of our favorite foods in bulk, which saves us a few bucks, and prevents a lot of waste! Nothing gets tossed in the garbage since whatever I seal stays just as fresh as it was when first purchased!
I don’t only store meats and cheese; I have Freezer Apple Pie Filling ready for the holiday season! Talk about a time saver! I can enjoy the company of those I celebrate the season with and effortlessly put an apple pie in the oven to share!
Have you been invited to an impromptu gathering? Spread the holiday cheer with a freshly baked pie!
I purchased my pie crust for these cuties, but you can make a pie crust using either of these recipes;
To make these bite size pies all you do is cut 2 1/2 inch circles with a biscuit cutter, place each crust in a mini tart or muffin pan, add the filling (cut the apples in small pieces), and then bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Each full size pie crust made 12 tart size apple pies! Don’t forget the whipped cream!!
The FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing System is beneficial for families of all sizes, and one lucky reader has the opportunity to receive the FoodSaver FM2000Vacuum SealerFREE! The winner will be contracted by email and will have 48 hours to claim the prize before another winner is picked.

Freezer Apple Pie Filling and a Foodsaver #Giveaway
- 3 pounds (7-8) baking apples, like Golden Delicious
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh
- 2/3 cups granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup butter, unsalted
- 1 teaspoon Apple Pie Spice
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Peel, core, halve the apples and slice each half into 4 wedges. Place in a large bowl with the lemon juice. Fold apples so each is evenly coated with lemon juice. Add sugar and fold into apples.
- In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the apples and cook until the sugar dissolves and the juice begins to simmer. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the apples soften slightly and releases their juices (approximately 5 minutes).
- Remove skillet from heat and strain apples in a colander, catching the juice in a bowl. Return the juice to the skillet and simmer over medium heat until it bubbles and begins to turn amber and thicken (about 10 minutes).
- In a large bowl, mix the apples with the juice from the apples and add the apple spice and nutmeg. Let cool completely.
Filling doesn't not need to be completely thawed before baking.
