Applesauce Pie

Recipe from

Southern Living


10 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped
1 large lemon, sliced and seeded
2 1/2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (15-ounce) package refrigerated piecrusts
Whipped cream (optional)


Cook first 3 ingredients in a Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring often, 35 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat, and discard lemon. Add butter and vanilla; cool.

Fit 1 piecrust into a 9-inch pieplate according to package directions. Pour applesauce mixture into crust.

Roll remaining piecrust to press out fold lines, and cut into 1/2-inch strips. Arrange strips in a lattice design over filling; fold edges under, and crimp.

Bake on lowest oven rack at 425° for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden, shielding pie with aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning, if necessary. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
