Apple Pies for the Freezer

Total Time
Prep 1 hr

It is so nice to be able to have these prepared frozen pies waiting for you to bake and serve within an hour's notice. I like to mix my favorite apples, Cortlands and Granny Smith, for this recipe. The brine will keep the apples from turning in this easy recipe.

I followed this recipe to the letter. I had a bunch of apples to use up and this was a very good way to use them. I baked one of them today and it was super good! And I have more all ready in the freezer for the winter. It was a bit of work all in one day, but really worth it! These taste great!! Thanks for the recipe Barbara!

Yummy I love this recipe. I wanted to smother it over everything I make. Pancakes so yummy. If really freezes great, the pie was so good the family loved the nutmeg taste

Thank for sharing. I like to fill my pies high with apples. I have an apple peeler, corer, and slicer so the apples slices cook down a lot so I need to add extra apples, so it only made 3 pies for me. I just wanted to let anyone know if they have never used their apple peeler for pies before. I was able to get everything done in about 2 hour’s total. Thanks Again
