My friends over at Maple Leaf Foods recently asked me to give their newest baking shortcut, Tenderflake EasyPie, a test run. Naturally, I obliged. Free pie is always good.
There are two tasty variations – double crust and crumble top.
The box contents are pretty straight forward Two pie crusts and a package of seasoning or one pie crust, a package of seasoning, and a crumble top mixture.
Cut up two cups of apples (or prepare two cups of any fruit).
Mix in the seasoning blend.
Tuck the apples carefully into the pie and pop the second pie crust on top. The apples might not look like it, but they will fit in.
Be sure to use a fork and crimp the edges together to prevent the filling from oozing out during baking. And slice a couple of slits in the top of the pie to vent the steam as well.
The procedure is much the same for the crumble top pie, with the exception of adding butter to the crumble mixture and pouring it on top instead.
Just under a half hour later, you have a delicious 6” pie.
While not entirely practical for a family situation, I feel these would be perfect for an older person living alone or a young singleton. I made both of ours with apples, but to avoid the need for slicing and chopping, berries can be used.
We cut each pie into four pieces to make sure everyone got to sample it, but 2-3 slices would probably be more realistic. EasyPie is available in the freezer aisle of your favourite grocer, near those delicious Tenderflake pie crusts and tart shells!
