  • 1 tablespoon Crown Lily White Corn Syrup
  • 2 tablespoons apple juice
  • 6 wide-mouthed 1/2 pint jelly jars

  4. Stir with a fork until just moistened.
  5. Form dough into a ball.
  6. Roll between 2 sheets of waxed paper, forming a 14 x 12-inch rectangle.Note: Dampen work area by wiping with a wet dish cloth to prevent wax paper from slipping.
  7. Place waxed paper covered crust on a baking sheet and refrigerate until ready to use.

For filling:

  1. Combine apples, sugar, corn starch, cinnamon, corn syrup and apple juice in a large bowl.
  2. Mix until all apples are coated.
  3. Spray inside of jar with cooking spray.
  4. Portion apples into jars, filling to the top.
  5. Remove top layer of waxed paper from pie crust.

  7. Cut out center of crust with a small decorative cookie cutter.
  8. Carefully peel crust from waxed paper and place on filling.
  9. Repeat with remaining jars. (Only about half of the crust will be used. Place in a large plastic bag to freeze for later use).
