As it turns out, you can do more with canned filling than make pies. You could also whip up some fritters, donuts, or even a cheesecake

So, are you in the mood for an apple-packed confection? If so, these recipes with apple pie filling can help. Enjoy! 

1. Apple Pie 

Alright, so I hyped you up about all the other things you can make with pie filling. And now I’m starting my list with apple pie

I know! I know! I’m the worst!

But seriously, what kind of apple pie filling list would this be without apple pie on it! 

Furthermore, this isn’t just any old apple pie. It’s the quickest, easiest, and most convenient apple pie you’ll ever make.

You’ll start with refrigerated pie crusts and apple pie filling. Beyond that, all you’ll need is lemon juice, ginger, and an egg white.

You’ll have it ready in less than an hour with only 10 minutes of prep work. It doesn’t get more convenient than that, and what’s more American than apple pie and convenience?

2. Quick Apple Turnovers

Want something just as easy to make but more single-serve friendly? These quick apple turnovers are just the thing. 

Each one features a buttery, flaky crust and a warm cinnamon-apple filling.

Using puff pastry dough for the crust is a terrific idea. It makes the most satisfying crunch when you bite into one.

Try them the next time you’re in the mood for a comforting, easy-to-make treat.

3. Apple Pie Filling Coffee Cake

If you like dense, fruity, tender cakes, this one is a must-make.

You only need 6 key ingredients, plus a couple for the glaze, and it’s ready for the oven in minutes.

It’s almost like a dump cake, but you have to mix the batter first. But thanks to the cake mix, it’s a breeze!

4. Cinnamon Rolls and Apple Pie Filling

This recipe is similar to and just as easy as the one above.

Instead of a quick cake mix batter, you’ll use ready made cinnamon rolls!

It’s like a sweetly spiced breakfast casserole loaded with tender apple goodness. And one bowl isn’t enough!

5. Apple Fritters

They’re crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside, and smothered in sticky glaze. If that doesn’t sound like a recipe for ambrosia, nothing ever will. 

These sweet, golden-brown apple fritters are divine. They take some time to make but are so much better than their store-bought counterparts.

 Don’t worry about making from-scratch pie filling, either. The canned stuff works just as well. 

6. Apple Dump Cake

Picture this: It’s the day, maybe just hours, before a family gathering. You forgot you were supposed to bring a dessert. What can you do?

Easy! Make a dump cake! This apple dump cake requires four simple ingredients and no skill to make. Dump everything in a rectangular cake pan. Then, bake it for about 45 minutes. 

The result? A fluffy, apple-packed cake with just enough cinnamon to taste. Easy peasy. 

7. Caramel Apple Cheesecake Pie

This delightfully decadent cheesecake is spectacular. It features a buttery graham cracker crust and a silky smooth, luxurious filling.

The topping is sweet, sticky caramel sauce and more apple pie filling. It’s a lovely layered dessert that the whole family will enjoy. 

Each bite combines sweet caramel, tart apple pie filling, and tangy cream cheese. It’s a triple flavor explosion that’ll make you want to lick your plate clean.

8. Apple Scones

Scones are some of my favorite treats. They’re incredible plain, with raisins, and even savory with cheese!

But these are my go-to scones for fall.

You’ll make the dough, then chill it and roll it out. But instead of slicing and baking, you’ll add a layer of apple pie filling!

The added moisture means they’re not quick as fluffy, but they’re incredible nonetheless.

9. Apple Pie Quick Bread

This sweetly spiced, apple-filled quick bread takes 5 minutes to prepare.

No, that wasn’t a typo. It only takes 5 minutes of prep work to get this bread ready for the oven.

That’s because it’s not really bread. With this one, you don’t have to worry about yeast or rise time. Instead, you’ll use boxed cake mix. 

The ‘bread’ itself is still phenomenal. It’s light, warm, rich, and moist. Plus, the sweet, sticky glaze takes it to another level of yumminess. 

Some people may call this cheating. I say it’s the most convenient recipe I’ve ever seen for ‘homemade bread.’ 

10. No-Bake Caramel Apple Cheesecake

This silky smooth cheesecake is light, apple-y, and delicious. It’s spectacularly sweet with just a hint of tanginess from the cream cheese.

The indulgent caramel pairs flawlessly with the apple pie filling and whipped topping. It’s so good that people won’t believe how easy it was to make. 

It’s entirely no-bake and uses just eight ingredients. It shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes to prepare from start to finish. 

It’s another excellent option when you’ve forgotten you’re on dessert duty.
