3. Bake 25 minutes; remove foil. Continue baking 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and juices are bubbling. Cool completely. Just before serving, top each piece with scoop of ice cream and drizzle with Cinnamon Drizzle if desired. Cover; refrigerate leftover pie. 8 to 10 servings.

Cinnamon Drizzle: Melt remaining 2/3 cup cinnamon chips with 1-1/2 teaspoons shortening.

I didn’t follow this recipe 100%.  I haven’t used shortening for probably 20 yrs. or more and I didn’t want to buy a can, even a small one, just to use 1 1/2 tsps. of it to make the Cinnamon Drizzle, so I just added a small amount of milk to the  remaining 2/3 cup of cinnamon chips,  heated on low and  stirred often until the chips were all melted.

The pies turned out really good. They had a nice cinnamon/apple flavor which we all loved.  I’ll definitely be making this recipe again.

  1. I wouldn’t have bought the shortening either. This looks like such an easy recipe.

  2. Looks good but we can’t buy cinnamon chips around here. I looked for them when I was cooking a different recipe.

  3. Yum! Would you be happy to pop over to my place (carole’s Chatter) and add this to the huge and wonderful pie and tart collection? Hope so. Cheers

  4. I did not even know they made cinnamon chips!

  5. I didn’t know about cinnamon chips either, wow that looks good. When my son and family come visit I am totally making this!

  6. That really does sound like an easy pie to make and looks like it would taste good, too. I don’t think I have ever seen cinnamon chips but will be looking for them next shopping day. I like lots of cinnamon in my apple pie. Thansk for sharing this recipe and the tip about the shortening, which I don’t use either.

  7. It does look easy, and I’ve never seen fried apples or cinnamon chips in the grocery store; I’m going to have to look for these.

  8. Yum! I love summer fruit desserts, but I’m already starting to think about apples! 🙂
