1-Minute Easy-as-Pie Recipe

Who has time to cook?

Why pay big bucks for a frozen pie that fills your freezer and has to be cooked in the big oven all at once?

This is an incredibly lazy, incredibly tasty pie recipe that literally anyone can make.

1-Minute Easy-as-Pie

INGREDIENTS*:

  • 1 can Pie Filling (~$2.00)
  • 1 or 2 Pie Crusts (~$1.78 ea.)
  • Optional:  Whipped Cream (~$3.50) or Cool Whip

Makes 6-8 servings in about a minute or so.


* TIPS:

Pie Filling — My favorite pie filling is Duncan Hines Comstock More Fruit Cinnamon and Spice Apple.  They also have other flavors and no-sugar-added varieties.

Pie Crusts — I like Keebler’s Ready Crust graham cracker crust with apple pie filling … but try the Oreo crust with cherry filling instead.  They also offer reduced-fat, shortbread, and mini varieties.

Cool WhipCool Whip also has reduced-fat and sugar-free varieties.

These products frequently have coupons available online (check Coupons.com and brand websites).  For 2016, I used a coupon for $1.00 off 3 Keebler pie crusts.


PREPARE:

  1. Open pie crust package (keep clear plastic insert for later).
  2. Pour pie filling into pie crust.
  3. Optional:  Crumble second pie crust and sprinkle over top of pie.  This keeps the filling from getting gummy and adds sweetness to no-sugar-added filling.  One crumbled crust can cover two pies.

COOK AND SERVE:

  1. Slice into 6-8 pieces.
  2. Place some pie on a plate (crumbly still tastes good) and microwave for 15-30 seconds.
  3. Alternately:  Cook whole pie in the big oven following the pie filling instructions.
  4. Optional:  Top with whipped cream or Cool Whip.

AFTERWARDS:

Flip over the clear plastic insert of the pie crust package to become a lid for the pie and crimp down the foil to secure it.  Store in fridge and heat each slice as needed.
