This is by far the best Apple Pie filling! Enjoy as is or stir in some date caramel for an extra pop of taste and add to your favorite pies, crisps, and oatmeal.
Apples are almost in season right now (August-November) so we decided to go apple picking. The farm we visited has about 2 weeks left until the apples are ripe, but we did find a few that were ready to be picked and baked!
We made a large batch of this apple pie filling and made mini pies. Half was later pureed for apple sauce and later used as filling in these homemade apple pie pop-tarts.
