Recipe: Red Hot Apple Pie

This is hands-down one of the easiest dessert recipes I have ever made. Not to mention, most appealing to the eye! I made this last Christmas, but it's also a great recipe for Easter. It's hard to believe Easter is right around the corner! It's amazing how time flies when you have kids!

Here is your shopping list for this recipe:

1 package of TWO (2) frozen, deep-dish pie crusts
2 cans of apple pie filling
1 box of red hots
4 Tbsp. of butter

In a large bowl, mix apple pie filling and red hots. Let sit for about 30 minutes. The filling will become this gorgeous red color. I placed one of the pie crusts in the bottom of a deep dish pie pan, and cut the other into 1/4 inch strips with a pizza cutter. Place the filling into the pie crust.

I place 4 pats of butter around the pie, just to add a bit of richness. This is a holiday recipe, so no calories spared! I chose to weave the top, but you can just place the whole thing on top if you like. I like to display the filling, just because the color is so pretty! Flute the edges as desired. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes, or until the crust starts to become a nice golden color. It tastes delicious and adds a nice pop of color to your festive table!
