Why I Love This Recipe

It's delicious and easy to make. The recipe called for shortening so I used butter flavored Crisco, which was excellent. Next time I make it, I may try using half butter and half Crisco, or all butter. I think other prepared pie fillings would work as well as apple too.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 TBS. sugar
1 egg
2/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup water
1 can prepared apple pie filling (1 LB. 5 oz. can)
1 TBS. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. apple pie spice
(I used cinnamon and nutmeg)


Directions

In mixing bowl (I used Kitchen Aid Mixer) combine flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, egg, shortening, and water. Beat two minutes (or longer until creamy and smooth) at medium speed. Pour batter into a deep 9 inch pie dish/pan, lightly buttered or sprayed. Combine the pie filling with lemon juice and spice and pour into center of batter, spreading evenly. I left about a 1" rim of batter exposed and trimmed this edge with walnuts (optional),but good. Bake at 425 degrees for 45-50 minutes.
