Apple Pies for the Freezer

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Aroostook

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!
