Recipe Friday: Easy Apple Pie-ish

I had the apples

I had the spices

I had the pie dough

I had the appliances.


I had the time

I had the space

I had the oven,

I had the place.


I had all I needed

Except the ambition

So here is the –ish part

Of my creation.


  • 2 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced into wedges
  • 1 prepared pie crust dough, thawed
  • Sucanat (or sugar, or brown sugar)
  • Spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice
  • Butter (about 2 tablespoons), shredded or cut into itty-bitty pieces


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Spread dough out flat onto a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Arrange apple slices onto dough.
  • Sprinkle with sugar and sprinkle with spices.
  • Sprinkle with butter pieces.
  • Bake 35 minutes, until crust is golden.
  • To serve: Tear off portions and eat by hand; or slice and serve on plates. Ice cream might be good with it. Or maybe cheese.

To my surprise, this was SO GOOD!

  1. This made me chuckle! I love pie. I am however, the last person who ought to be eating any pie. Once in awhile, though, I would love to treat myself to some pie but, at this point in my life, I find that I cannot be bothered to put in the time and effort to actually make one. This method seems much more “doable” in my evolving time-conservative lifestyle. Thank you very much for sharing this! It looks delicious!

      1. LoL….it would seem so. I will hit the big 6-0 this week and I sometimes scratch my head over the way I’ve done a 360 in my lifetime in regards to certain things. 30 years ago I was a diehard Martha Stewart “devotee” and cooked and baked like a fiend. Of course then I had people to cook for….now it’s just me. Now, I find myself at the opposite end of the pole……..avoiding anything too involved or requiring cleanup of more than 1 or 2 “vessels”…….lol……or making a pie………..funny how life and priorities can really change over time.
