Six Word Saturday -- Apple pie and _____________ (you fill in the blank)
Apple pie and cheese my favorite
I'd have a slice of American Cheese
over a large slice of still warm apple pie.
What could be better than that?

Okay, I didn't dress. Instead I typed up my recipe:
1 Box pastry shells for two 9-inch two-crust pies
(Kroger frozen Pie Crusts-unroll & bake or equivalent)
6 cups sliced pared tart apples
1 can prepared Apple Pie Filling (Comstock or equivalent)
¼ teaspoon cinnamon – optional*
¼ teaspoon nutmeg – optional*
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
Heat oven to 425°. Prepare pastry using directions on the box.
Stir together optional spices, sliced apples, and prepared pie filling mix.
Turn into pastry-lined pans; dot with butter
Cover with top crust using fluting and design of your choice. Be sure
there are a few opening slits for the steam to escape.
Place strip of aluminum foil covering the edges. Otherwise the crusts
will bake first and may even burn.
Remove foil for the last 15 minutes.
Bake 45 minutes, more or less. Pie is done when crust is brown and
the pie liquids begin to ease or bubble through the crust openings.
* I generally do not add additional spices. Remember the seasoning
in the prepared mix is for one pie in the eyes of the manufacturer. This
may not be strong enough flavor for two pies to suit your taste.
I hope you try making this, it really is quick and easy. And good!

With a few scraps left I rolled them out again and cut into strips.
Those repairs and put-together pieces came out looking better when baked. Besides I soon covered it with cheese.
Dr. John -- I like ice cream but my first choice is the American cheese.
Thanks for sharing the recipe on 6WS!
When we move to Washington State I just might try your recipe. I can't bring myself to do much baking here in this heat.
I like a kiss without a squeeze. All the old timers around here always repeated that.
I prefer vanilla Ice cream.
Marilyn just made 2 pies last night out of some of our apples. Great pie.
I like your write up on the food. YOu guys eat well.
The new babe and grandma are both looking good.
The fertilizer looks like good stuff. I could use a little bloom myself.
Funny story about the two old ladies.
I don't do cat blogs.
We have a Dam Bait Shop up near Gavins Point Dam.
Your pie sounds delicious....
