This pie is exceptionally easy to prepare. Just mix applesauce with eggs, sugar and cinnamon, pour into a pie shell and bake! I love to make it for afternoon tea.
Place your pie shell in a 9-inch pie pan. I use a pre-made crust if I am in a hurry. Rub the crust with the softened butter and place in the refrigerator until the filling is ready.
Combine the sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon and the eggs. Beat until smooth.
Fold the applesauce and vanilla into the egg mixture and stir until well blended.
Remove your pie shell from the refrigerator and pour in the filling.
Sprinkle the top with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and place the pie in a preheated 450 degrees F oven for 15 minutes.
Reduce the heat to 350 degrees F and bake for another 30 minutes or until the center is set.
Time to prepare: 1 hour, 15 minutes.
