Remember candy apples from when you were a kid? You know, you got them at carnivals and at the circus. If you'd like to bring back that same special taste without all the sticky mess, here's a pie that'll do it for you. (Everybody will wink at the taste, too.)

What You'll Need:
  • 1 3/4 cups unsweetened apple juice, divided
  • 1/3 cup cinnamon candies (about 15 candy disks)
  • 1/4 teaspoon red food color
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 tart cooking apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 prepared 9-inch graham cracker pie crust
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed(1 8-ounce container equals 3-1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
What To Do:
  1. In a large saucepan, combine 1-1/2 cups apple juice, candies, food color, vanilla extract, and apples. Bring to a boil, then simmer just until the apples are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently. 

  2. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup juice and cornstarch. Stir into the apple mixture and continue to cook until thickened, about 2 minutes, then cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat; cool to room temperature.

  3. Spread the apple filling over the bottom of the pie crust.

  4. Chill for several hours or until the filling holds its shape.

  5. Before serving, combine the whipped topping and cinnamon; top each slice with a dollop of the mixture.

Notes

Granny Smith and Rome apples varieties work best here.
