Ingredients
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust (from 15-ounce package)
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons McCormick® Cinnamon, Ground
  • 4 cups thinly sliced peeled apples (about 4 medium)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
Directions
PREP
15 mins
COOK
20 mins

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Prepare crust as directed on package. Place on foil-lined 12-inch pizza pan. If necessary, press out any folds or creases. Brush crust with about 1/2 of the beaten egg white.

2. Mix 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon in medium bowl. Toss with apples. Spoon into center of crust, spreading to within 2 inches of edges. Fold 2-inch edge of crust up over apples, pleating or folding crust as needed. Brush crust with remaining egg white; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar.

3. Bake 20 minutes or until apples are tender. Cool slightly before serving.

Test Kitchen Tips:

  • For best results, use Gala, Granny Smith or Braeburn apples.

 

  • Try adding 1/4 cup raisins, dried cranberries or dried cherries to the fruit mixture.

 

Spiced Easier Than Apple Pie: Prepare as directed. Use 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick® Pumpkin Pie Spice or 1 teaspoon McCormick® Apple Pie Spice in place of the cinnamon.
