Homemade Apple Filling
  • *Note: For apple pie, i triple this recipe
  • 4 medium apples, I like to use honeycrisp (Granny smith for a few makes it less sweet)
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  1. Peel apples, core them and slice into small chunks.
  2. Melt the butter in a pot over medium and add the cinnamon.
  3. Stir in the apples, sugar & 3 tablespoons water.
  4. Cover and cook, stirring every few minutes for 7-12 minutes or until slightly soft.
  5. In a bowl, combine cornstarch and water.
  6. Whisk in this slurry slowly to the pot and cook another 2 minutes or until thick. (You may not need it all)
  7. Let cool!
