Candied Apple Pie

No recipe image available.This apple pie will take you back to your childhood and fun times at an amusement park or country fair with its old-fashioned cinnamon red candied apple flavor.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (9-inch) baked pie shell
1 3/4 cups unsweetened apple juice - divided use
3/4 cup hard cinnamon-flavored candy (not "red hots" which will impart a waxy residue)
1/4 teaspoon red food coloring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 Granny Smith apples (or other tart green apples), peeled and sliced thinly
3 tablespoons cornstarch
Non-dairy whipped topping (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  3. Spread apple mixture into baked pie shell, and chill for several hours.
  4. Serve with whipped topping, if desired.
