Apple Pie Rustica

With just five ingredients, three steps and about a half hour, you can put this dessert on the table, hot and ready to enjoy.



  • 1 refrigerated pie crust or pastry for one 9-inch single pie crust
  • 1 (21-oz.) can of Comstock or Wilderness Apple Pie Filling
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place pie crust on a rimless baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Dust a rolling pin and parchment paper with flour and roll pastry to a rough 13-inch circle. Place pie filling in center of pastry, leaving a 2-inch border all around. Grate 1 tsp. of lemon peel; squeeze 2 tsp. of lemon juice from the lemon. Sprinkle both over pie filling. Fold pastry back over pie filling to make an uneven edge of 1-1/2-inches, leaving center of pie filling exposed. Sprinkle sugar over pastry border. Bake 20 minutes until the filling is bubbly and the pastry is golden brown. Cool slightly. Serve with ice cream if desired.


Makes 6 to 8 servings
