We only had one ready-made pie crust and I was too lazy to make more. The trick is to put it in a tart pan. Everyone should have a tart pan for just such occasions.
Also - the apples were frozen in a bag and we didn't defrost them before we unceremoniously dumped them in the crust in big frozen chunks.
It looked awful. I didn't care.
Remember that - it's the unceremoniousness that makes it taste extra good. I'm sure.
If you want to make it fresh, here's the recipe:
- 1 pie crust, pressed into the bottom of a tart pan
- 8 cups sliced apples, skins on
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
This is the same apple sugar spice mix we use for frozen pie mixes. We wash and cut up 1/2 bushel of apples at a time, core them and slice them. Don't bother peeling them. Put 8 cups of apples in a freezer bag and dump in the sugar/spice mix. Freeze flat so it's easy to break up into chunks for those last minute apple tarts.
