I don't have the patience to actually make an apple pie. I was thinking apple cobbler would be easier, but not easy enough, I think. I'm craving something sweet and right now that is the only sweet thing I have in my house. I'm thinking stick them in the microwave, sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on 'em and viola cinnamon apples! How long does it take you to make apple cobber? Do you have any quick and easy recipes for apples?

The only thing I know to do with apple filling is to make apple dumplings but to make them you need pastry dough.

How about Apple Crisp? You have the apples. For the topping you need the following: 1/2 cup rolled oats 2 tbsp butter 1/2 cup brown sugar sprinkle on top of the apples and bake at 350 for 25 minutes. depending on the amount of apples you have, you may need to double the topping recipe.

Do you have a package of biscuits? If you do, take out a deep frying pan or an electric frying pan, or whatever you use to deep fry things. Deep fry the biscuits, then roll them around in sugar and cinnamon on a plate. Use a pastry filler, or a knife, and make a hole in the biscuit to fill with the pie filling. Tada! Donuts! I do this all the time, only with jelly and jam. It make a cheap, homeade batch of delicious donuts. Pretty soon, I want to find a recipe for glaze. But if I were you I would try my idea!

What can you make with apple pie filling? Your idea sounds simple enough. Also you could think about friend apples, you would add butter, sugar and cinnamon and put those babies in a frying pan and just fry only about twenty minutes or until the apples start giving off a really good smell. Wah la, you have friend apples. They are good with pancakes and syrup too......

I am not a baker at all, the most I ever make is a plain cake from scratch, but I will buy empty pie shells and put apple and cinnamon in it

I'm not sure if this will sound awful to you or not... LOL... but it's certainly quick and easy and the first thing that came to mind. Why don't you heat up the apple filling and spoon it warm over vanilla ice cream? Pretty much like having apple pie a la mode without the crust :) I know someone that does this with cherry pie filling and, in all honesty, using apple sounds more appealing to me LOL

That does sound good. I wish I had the ice cream! I may try in one day when I do have the ice cream. I just don't want to go out right now.

Quickest way is to bung it into the microwave for 30-60 seconds, and toss some ice cream over it. Then you've got Apple Pie & ice cream without the pie. Still tastes nice though.

Your cinnamon apples sound good. I would use them for apple crumble. That's easy and quick enough to make and just sprinkle over the top of the apples. I cook it for about twenty minutes, so not too bad for time, either. Brightest Blessings.
