Pinata apples adapt well to cooking temperatures, making them a great choice for apple pie. This exclusive variety is typically available from January until late April.
Peel, core and slice each apple and put into a large bowl. Add sugar, flour, cinnamon and lemon juice on top of the apples. Mix well. Cook the apple mixture in a microwave for three minutes on high power. Then, stir the apples and pour into an unbaked pie shell. Cut butter into small cubes and place generously across the top of the apple filling. Lay the second unbaked pie shell over the filling and pinch to seal pie shells together. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Then turn temperature to 375 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes
.Allow the pie to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy!
