Sweet Shortcuts - Apple Pie Napoleon

Making a pie from scratch can be intimidating, but have no fear - Sugar Baby to the rescue!

I have created an apple pie napoleon from frozen pie crust and canned apple pie filling, and it is SCRUMPTIOUS!


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and flour a cutting board.

Defrost the pie crust per the instructions on the box/bag and unroll it onto the cutting board. [If it cracks or breaks, just smoosh it back together.]

Cut out circles - I used a three inch biscuit cutter, but you can use whatever you want to cut your circles...even drinking glasses!


Place the circles on a cookie sheet and sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar.


Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until crispy.

Microwave your pie filling until it's nice and warm...mmm.


Place one of the dough circles on a plate, and cover it with the warmed filling.

Do two more layers in this manner.


Garnish with whipped cream on top, and serve!



Oh, to describe the flavors and textures of this delicious dessert?  Crispy, sweet dough contrasting with the oozy warm pie filling.

I cut it down the middle with my fork, and broke everything into bite size pieces.  I'm embarrassed to say that when I finished eating, I kept scraping my fork across the plate to try to get every last crumb and drop of filling.  I may have even licked the plate.  (Who, me?)

This napoleon is a really beautiful and unique presentation, and is a lot easier than making an apple pie from scratch.  These would be great for a dinner party dessert, and are a cinch to put together after the meal.

Hope you enjoy this!
