I made the filling portion only of this recipe to use in two other recipes I was making that called for a can of apple pie filling. I just added a little water to prevent burning and let them simmer on the stove until tender. I have always had trouble getting the portions for apple pie filling correct...but this is it! Thank you so much...after 47 years I can finally make an apple pie!
