Apple Pie Filling With Vanilla & Buttershots! Canning

Recipe by Rita1652

My DD went apple picking and brought me a nice bunch of organic apples. This can top ice cream waffles, pan cakes, french toast. Make an apple pie with it or stuff puff pastry with it. Pour it over a hot ricotta cheese cake.

This pie filling was incredible. Did not know what buttershots was until I read the reciepe but wow is it tasty. I had two jars that didnt seal properly so made up my own cheesecake with apple pie filling (#335174) Got rave reviews from everyone who tried them.
