Dutch Apple Pie

I have to say, now that I am living without my beloved food processor (there's no room in our motorhome), I have found this is the best way to enjoy a wonderful pie.  I've used the "crust" portion and baked the tastiest peach pie also!  Life is good!  All I can say, is TRY IT!

    saucepan until smooth; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes
