  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Apple Pie Filling

  • 1 24 oz Bag of Crunch Pak Mixed Apple Slices
  • 1/3 c sugar
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp water

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted or softened butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk more to thin, if necessary
  • 1-2 drops food coloring if desired
  • sprinkles if desired

To Make Pie Filling

  • Melt the butter in a large sauce pan.
  • Next, add in your apple pie spice and stir until combined.
  • Once the butter and apple pie spice are combined, add in the Crunch Pak apple slices.
  • Next, add in the sugar and water. This will create the base for the sauce.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water. Stir to combine, and add into the apples, stirring to incorporate into the sauce. This helps to thicken the sauce up for the filling. Cook for about a minute until thick.

To Make the Glaze

  • Combine sugar, softened butter, vanilla and milk until smooth, adding more milk if necessary for consistency. Add in 1-2 drops of pink food coloring, if desired.

To Make the Apple Slices Pastry

  • Preheat the oven to 400º.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Add in butter and cut in with pastry cutter or fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a measuring cup, mix vegetable oil, water, egg yolks and lemon juice together and pour over flour mixture. Blend gently with a fork until combined; mixture will be very moist.
  • Divide dough in half. Roll or pat one half of dough directly into 9″ by 13″ pan, bringing dough slightly up the edges (you can use your hands/fingers or a mini rolling pin). Spread apple filling evenly over the dough. Roll remaining dough to fit the top, either on a well floured pastry board or the back of a sheet pan and then carefully flip it over the top.
  • Press or pinch the edges together, don’t worry if it doesn’t seal completely, as long as top is completely covering apples. Patch where necessary.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the crust is lightly browned, rotating pan halfway. Remove to rack to cool.
  • Spread glaze over top of crust with an offset spatula and let glaze set and harden. Add sprinkles, if desired. Cut into 2- or 3-inch squares and enjoy!
