Apples Apples Apples Plus a Pillsbury Giveaway

Recently, I was sent a Pillsbury “Love the Pie” prize pack which includes a VIP coupon for a free sample of Pillsbury® Refrigerated Pie Crusts, a pie dish, and apple themed kitchen items. I also received an additional prize pack to give away to one of my readers.

In exchange, I was supposed to go out to an Apple Orchard and pick apples and bake an awesome dessert. However, I have failed!! We jsut never made it out to the local apple orchards. However, never fear! I decided to make an apple crumble out of store bought apples!

Now, I did not use the pie crust, yet! I plan on using the pie crust in the near future.  I decided to make the crumble for Thanksgiving, to accommodate a diabetic family member.

So here is how I prepared the crumble.  First I gathered my apples....

And then I gathered all the supplies I needed.....

The next step was to peel and core the apples, and then slice them.....

Next, I placed the peeled and sliced apples in a bowl... and added powdered stevia,  Cinnamon, a little bit of flour. and butter and mixed until the mixture covered the apples.

Next I mixed together, oatmeal, a little bit of brown sugar, vanilla and butter. And then I crumbled it over the top of the apples. I must tell you I forgot to take a picture as I took it out of the oven. Now the one thing I know is that I should have put some foil over the top, because the top burnt a little bit.  The apple crumbled turned out delicious!

  1. Pillsbury Pie Crust -- oh, I'd want to make a strawberry-rhubarb pie. But I'd probably make a blueberry pie. mmmm.

  2. I think an apple pie is probably my favorite apple dessert. I have great memories of processing apples for pies with my parents.
