Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Place pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate as directed on box for One-Crust Filled Pie.
  • 2 In 10-inch skillet, mix 1/4 cup brown sugar and 2 tablespoons butter; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved. Add apples; cook uncovered 12 to 15 minutes or until apples are tender. Drain; set aside.
