Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Remove pie crusts and let sit 15 minutes per box instructions. Lay out parchment paper and unroll pie crusts. Using a 2.75″ circle cutter, cut circles out of one of the crusts (I made 14 and then at the end I made a couple more with leftovers). You can re-roll the scraps to make more circles. Our reader Julie suggested using the can from the pie filling as a cutter!! What an awesome idea!
  3. Cut strips (approx 1/4″ or as thick as you’d like) out of the second pie crust. (I used a pastry wheel to make them pretty).
  4. Open the can of pie filling and pour it onto a cutting board. Dice the apples into small chunks.
  5. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of pie filling on each circle (you may have some left over). Using the strips of pastry you cut, weave them on top of each circle to create a lattice. View the How to Create a Lattice Crust tutorial here
  6. Once the lattice is completed, use the same cookie cutter to trim the stray bits of pastry. I used a child’s fork to create the design along the edges. Brush each cookie crust with egg white and sprinkle with sugar.
  7. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake 12-16 minutes or until browned.

Recipe Notes

My cutter was 2.75″ but if you have one close (2.5-3″) it should work just fine!
