My friend invited me to a Pillsbury party tonight, I am so excited. My job is to make a recipe using one Pillsbury refrigerated products and bring it to the party. Look what I made: Topsy-Turvy Apple Pie!
Doesn't it look delicious!
Glaze and Crust
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1/2 cup pecan halves
1 box Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
Crust 1st step
Crust 2nd step - this will end up being the top when you flip the pie at the end
The Pillsbury Product I chose to use - pie crusts!
What they look like when you open the box.
Crust 3rd step - Unroll one crust and press into the pecan mixture.
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (4 medium)
I used Gala apples for the filling
Peeled and sliced apples
Layer and sprinkle sugar/cinnamon mixture
Top with second crust, crimp edges and vent pie
1 Heat oven to 425°F. In 9-inch glass pie plate, mix brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Spread evenly in bottom of pie plate. Arrange pecans over mixture. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie, placing bottom crust over mixture in pan.
2 In small bowl, mix granulated sugar, flour and cinnamon. Arrange half of apple slices in crust-lined pie plate. Sprinkle with half of sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining apple slices and sugar mixture. Top with second crust; seal edge and flute. Cut slits in several places in top crust.
3 Place pie on sheet of foil on middle oven rack in oven; bake 8 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F; bake 35 to 45 minutes longer or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Immediately run knife around edge of pie to loosen. Place serving plate upside down over pie; turn serving plate and pie plate over. Remove pie plate. Serve warm or cool with whipped cream.
Remove from oven, flip and delicious! At least it looks delicious, I will get to try it tonight at the party and let you know.
