- 1 refrigerated pie crust (half of a 15 oz. package, or pastry for one 9-inch single crust pie)
- 1 (21 oz.) can Duncan Hines® Comstock® or Wilderness® Apple Pie Filling
- 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- Preheat oven to 425° F.
- Place pie crust on a rimless baking sheet lined with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray. Dust a rolling pin and parchment paper with flour and roll pastry into a rough 13-inch circle.
- Place pie filling in center of pastry, leaving a 2-inch border all around. Grate 1 teaspoon of lemon peel; squeeze 2 teaspoons of lemon juice from the lemon. Sprinkle both over pie filling. Scatter butter over top.
- Fold pastry back over pie filling to make an uneven edge of 1-1/2 inches, leaving center of pie filling exposed. Sprinkle sugar over pastry border.
- Bake 20 minutes until the filling is bubbly and the pastry is golden brown. Cool slightly. Serve with ice cream if desired.
