    Can you freeze this? I think I’ll make it for this Shabbos but may as well make two.

    I have successfully streamlined this recipe by using two cans of applie filling. I absolutely HATE peeling apples. (OOPS, does this disqualify my daughters for shidduchim????)

    oomis1105, I saw your idea with the canned apple filling in jamie geller’s new cookbook, so I have tried it. I was cooking all day yesterday, I know what you mean by the cutting and peeling. I made potato kugel too and tripled the recipe, 18 potatoes…I should post that recipe as well, cause it freezes great. I am trying to cook extra for yom tov while I am making shabbos…And may your daughters get great shidduchim (I use plastic clear tablecloths, a shandah!)

    Just wanted to thank you for posting the recipe. I made it the other night for Yom Tov so I haven’t tasted it yet, but the house sure smelled delicious.

    I subsituted an equal amount of brown rice flour for the regular flour since my daughter can’t eat wheat, and it came out nicely. I did not add any texture aids such as xantham gum.

    SHINDY- I did this pie yesterday- taste is delicious. Just one concern- when I tried to slice it- was pretty soft and didnt slice nicely- they fell apart. Any suggestions?

    You have to bring the tin you make it in to the table and everyone helps themselves, it’s not a cake or a kugel that slices. If you have a baking dish, bake it in the baking dish if you don’t like to serve in a disposable tin to the table.

    Shindy, thanks for the kind wishes for my girls. AMEIN. For the psoter who feels it fell apart when being sliced, it might help to FREEZE it first, then slice the frozen pie. Let it thaw and serve it. It IS very soft, but freezing gives it the firmness needed for slicing. Making a bottom layer helps, and I always use Crisco for the fat in this kugel/pie

    good idea about the freezing, especially if you serve it room temp or cold.

    #739591

    What works best for us is scooping it out with a spoon and serving it in a fancy cupcake tin.

    #739592

    Thanks everbody. I did exactly that. I froze it and hopefully we’ll get some decent slices out of it!! Main thing’s that it tastes great!!

    This recipe can be simplified if you buy the Hadar Apple Crisp Crumb Topping with oats. just cut and cube the apples and mix with the whole berry cranberry sauce and put topping on. So easy and delicious, just made it today.

    Even simpler

    Use a can of Apple Pie filling

    A can of Cranberries

    and the store bought crunch

    then you don’t have to do anything

    just put it together and pop

    it in the oven

    And EVEN simpler

    Go to your favorite local Take Out store

    and buy a piece (or two):)

    Shmooze

    I have tried it with canned apple filling but my family likes it with fresh apples.

    Ok

    I just found, that. for the Apples to be soft they need to bake al least an hour, but that would be too long for the crunch, so thats why i use the canned because it’s softer

    But, I had another idea that you can bake just the apples with abit of water, covered with foil, untill their soft, and then put on the crumbs

    nothing happens to the crunch if you bake it more than an hour. if you bake the apples first I would NOT add any water because the apples and cranberry sauce have enough liquid.

    Ima- my prob with this recipe is that its a mush. Doesn’t slice nicely at all.

    Any solution how it can come out pretty, besides delic?

    I wanna serve it to guests sometimes but I need neat slices.

    It isn’t meant to be sliced and served on a plate like a potato kugel or noodle kugel. I serve it in the baking dish I baked it in with a spoon and everyone takes what they want.

    If you want to slice and serve you’d be better off with an apple kugel that has the eggs flour oil, if you need a recipe like that I can give you…
