Freezer Fruit Pie

This is a way to keep some pie filling on hand. All you need are two 9" pie crusts for it!

6 cups sliced peeled apples (or substitute peaches or berries)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar (*if using berries, use granulated sugar)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

In a bowl stir together fruit, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well combined. Spoon filling into a 9" foil pie plate. Wrap pie plate with heavy foil. It will freeze up to 6 months.

To serve: Preheat oven to 425. Pop filling out and place in one of the pie shells. Place second pie shell on top and crimp edges together. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 and bake another 35 to 45 minutes or until filling is bubbling.
