Deep Dish Peach Pie
Grandma’s pie—only microwaved!
- 1/2 pkg (14.1 oz/399 g) refrigerated pie crust (1 crust), chilled

Remove pie crust from package; do not unroll. Cut pie crust in half crosswise. Cut pie crust halves lengthwise into four pieces and finely dice. Place in Round Covered Baker.
Sprinkle ½ tsp (2 mL) of the cinnamon over the diced pie crust and mix gently. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 4-6 minutes or until light golden brown, stirring halfway through cooking with Small Mix ‘N Scraper®. Spread half of the pie crust over Parchment Paper to cool.
