Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 12 servings
- 1 cup apple pie filling
- 2 tablespoons coarse sugar or granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 pre-made pie crusts
- 1 egg + 1 teaspoon water lightly beaten together
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons heavy cream or milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place apple pie filling into a food processor and process until smooth but slightly chunky. Set aside.
Mix together coarse sugar and cinnamon, set aside.
Thaw pie crust per directions on the back of the box before starting the process. Lay out one pie crust and evenly coat with 1/3 of the sugar mixture. Layer the apple pie filling on top, evenly smoothing it out. Layer on the second pie crust, top with another 1/3 of the coarse sugar mixture.
Taking a pizza cutter, cut off sides until it is a square shape. Cut 1/2 inch thin strips. Makes about 12 strips.
Taking one piece at a time, gently twist and place on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Lightly brush each piece with egg wash. Sprinkle the remaining sugar mixture on each piece. Bake for 15 minutes, until slightly golden brown. Place sheet tray on a wired rack to cool
While twists are cooling, mix together the powdered sugar, cream/milk, and vanilla paste to form the glaze. Glaze twists by using a piping bag, or just drizzling it over each piece with a fork or spoon. Serve warm, enjoy!
