Mile-High Apple Pies
Stacking pie crust disks, apple wedges and creamy spiced filling turns apple pie into an innovation.
- 1 lemon
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) sugar
- 1 tsp (5 mL) pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 pkg (14.1 oz/399 g) refrigerated pie crusts (1 crust), softened according to package directions
- 3 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled
- 1 cup (250 mL) thawed frozen whipped topping
- 1/4 cup (50 mL) caramel sauce
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Line Cookie Sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Zest lemon using Microplane® Adjustable Fine Grater to measure 1 tsp (5 mL). Combine zest, sugar and spice blend in large Bamboo Fiber Mixing Bowl; mix well. Unroll one pie crust onto lightly floured Pastry Mat; roll to a 12-in. (30-cm) circle using Baker's Roller®. Spacing closely together, cut 12 disks from crust using (3-in./7.5-cm) Biscuit Cutter. Transfer disks to Cookie Sheet; lightly prick with pastry tool and sprinkle evenly with about 2 tsp (10 mL) of the sugar mixture. Bake 6-8 minutes or until disks are golden brown.
Meanwhile, cut apples into wedges using Apple Wedger. Add apples to remaining sugar mixture in mixing bowl; toss well to coat completely. Arrange apples in a single layer in Small Ridged Baker; cover with Parchment Paper. Microwave on HIGH 3-5 minutes or until apples are soft. Carefully drain apple liquid into Mini Easy Read Measuring Cup to measure 3 tbsp (45 mL). Place whipped topping in small Bamboo Fiber Mixing Bowl; fold in apple liquid.
Remove Cookie Sheet from oven to Stackable Cooling Rack. To assemble, transfer one disk to a serving plate. Arrange three apple wedges on disk in a single layer using Sauté Tongs. Top apples with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the whipped topping mixture. Place second disk over filling; top with two apple wedges and 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the whipped topping mixture. Repeat with remaining disks, apple wedges and whipped topping mixture. Drizzle with sauce.
