For some strange reason I have this
interest in store bought food makeovers.
Here’s the “faking it” makeover Challenge:
Change a high quality frozen store bought apple pie into something
that doesn’t look mass produced.
I used Marie Callender’s pie.
Note: Their crust is made from scratch.
Also noted- This is NOT sponsored by Marie Callender’s
Here’s what happened….
I Thawed the pie and removed the filling. (The instructions say not to thaw the pie)
I’m not telling anyone else to disobey this recommendation if you are concerned about the health risk.
I gently rinsed the crust from any pie filling remains. Here’s what happened after that.
I had to push the pie crust around a bit to make it fit in the ramekins.
Then I filled them up with the apple filling….
Cooked as instructed or until the apples are done.
Mini apple cobblers topped with cutout piecrust hearts.
Hope you had a Happy Valentine’s Day!
Next up… a frozen cherry pie makeover.
-Why do this? What if you kept a few Marie Challenger Frozen pies in the freezer for a time
when you are in a time crunch and you….
A. Don’t have time to go to the store.
B. Don’t want to purchase all the ingredients needed for apple cobblers 🙂
C. Don’t have time to peel and slice apples
D. Want to serve something that doesn’t look store bought…. etc.
