Easy & Superb Apple Pie Made with Frozen Pie Crusts

Wrap the sweet, boiled apples in a pre-made pie crust... and just bake until golden. They're so delicious, they're better than store-bought pies!

Ingredients: 6 small pies

Frozen puff pastry
3 sheets
Beaten eggs for glazing
1/2 egg's worth
For the sweet, boiled apples:
1 large
4 tablespoons
Lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon
Rum (or rum extract)
1/2 tablespoon
10 g
Cinnamon powder
1 teaspoon


1. To thaw the frozen puff pastry, sprinkle your working surface with flour (not listed) and lay the pastry sheets on top.
2. Cut the apple into 4 slices, peel the skin and remove the core. Cut each slice in half to make 8 slices.
3. Thinly slice the apples as shown. (It's also fine to cut them into small cubes.)
4. Put the apples from Step 3 into a small pot, along with the sugar, lemon juice, and rum. Let sit until the moisture from the apples is released.
5. Add the butter and cinnamon and turn the heat on low. Simmer, stirring occasionally.
6. Once the butter has melted, increase the heat to high and simmer until the apples have become soft and the liquid evaporates. (It's fine if they become slightly browned.)
7. Transfer the apples to a separate dish and set aside to cool.
8. Using a rolling pin, roll the thawed puff pastry slightly. Cut and separate as shown in the picture. (1 sheet is cut into 4).
9. On half of the divided pie crusts (6 sheets), make diagonal cuts for ventilation. Preheat the oven to 390F/200C.
10. Glaze the remaining pastry sheets without incisions with the egg wash and spoon the apples from Step 7 on top.
11. Lay the cut pastry sheets over the crusts from Step 10.
12. Using chopsticks, tightly seal the edges. Repeat Steps 10-12 to make 6 pies.
13. Place the pies from Step 12 on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Glaze with an egg wash with a brush.
14. First, bake in the 390F/200C oven for about 15 minutes. Next, reduce the temperature to 350F/180C and bake for 10 minutes.
15. They're done.
16. Using frozen puff pastry is easy! How about some chocolate rolled pies? Recipe ID: 2038755.

My children love this. It's our family's apple pie! I received some apples, so I made this for the first time in awhile.
