Apple pie shortcut: Instead of chopping apples, try this instead

Don't feel like peeling and slicing pounds of apples for a homemade apple pie? Then don't bother! Use everyone's favorite new kitchen tool—the spiralizer—to make pie filling in minutes. Just give your apples a whirl through the spiralizer and you'll have a mountain of apple curls that not only look great in a pie pan, but taste just as good as if you'd hand-sliced every single darn one.


Keep your pie classic with 100 percent apple flavor, or toss in a few handfuls of dried fruit or nuts to make your pie taste even more like fall. One caveat: don't try this with pears, since they're too soft in texture to make it through the spiralizing process intact.
