How to Make Easy Puff Pastry Apple Pie

It rained today, and it’s a bit chilly, the night before Halloween. Social media is talking about killer clowns coming out in my city, so I’m double-locking the doors, just to be on the safe side. It’s a perfect night for apple pie.

Someone gave me a can of apple pie filling and a package of frozen puff pastry. When I received the gift, I put both away, thinking I would use them for other things. But, today, I realized I could put them together and make a wonderful pie. There is no need for a pie pan, just a sheet pan, and some parchment paper to keep the pastry from sticking. Of course, you could use other fillings, cherry or blueberry would be great.


You can make this with any kind of fruit filling you like. You can also do this with fresh fruit, just add the requisite cornstarch and sugar to make it your own. Instead of easy puff pastry apple pie, if you want, you can even make these into “toaster strudels” by cutting the sheets into eighths and sealing them with a fork.

It seems that the canned apple pie mix never has enough cinnamon. I love cinnamon in so many things, and I can’t think of a better one than the one from Penzey’s. Get yourself some Penzey’s cinnamon and have a wonderful dessert.

  2. This is an interesting post. I get tired of regular pie crust, and I love puff pastry. I think I’ll use cherries in mine, though, don’t care for apples too much.

  3. I love apple pie! I tried this and it was easy and delicious. I’ll be doing this again soon.
