A Tip For Making Apple Pies Easier

A Tip For Making Thanksgiving Apple Pies Easier
Making Thanksgiving dinner can be a very busy time. I usually take a whole day to cook all of my pies and goodies for our Thanksgiving deserts. I am always trying to think of ways to make cooking for Thanksgiving dinner easier. This is a simple tip that can help make your baking day go faster and easier. 

It is apple season so I thought it would be the perfect time to share this tip. My hubby brought home some awesomely yummy apples so lets get started. :)

The first thing that I do is peel and core my apples. I follow my favorite apple pie recipe and mix all the ingredients for 1 apple pie into a bowl.

For the next step I use a 1 gallon Ziploc freezer bag. 

I open the freezer bag and lay it inside of the pan that I usually use for baking my apple pies. Like this.

Now I fill the bag with my apple pie filling.

I press the air out and then zip up the bag.

Now I take my apple filling AND pan and put them in the freezer. Make sure they are set in the freezer so they do not tip while they freeze.

After your apples are frozen you can take the pans out and you can tuck your frozen apple pie filling anywhere in your freezer to save room.

On the day that you want to bake your apple pies, all you have to do is take the filling out and place it inside of the crust. Simple. You can also make your crust ahead of time and freeze that also. 
It is amazing how much time this saves me.
I hope this tip helps make your life easier.
