A great recipe! The 1/2 cup of butter to saute the apple seemed a bit much so I dipped the apples out into the pie crust and saved the melted butter for the topping. It was wonderful.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fit pie crust into a 9-inch pie plate according to package directions. Fold edges under and crimp.
  2. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add apple slices, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes or until apple slices are tender; set aside.
