  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Pillsbury BEST™ All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 2 tablespoons water, divided
  • 2 drops red food coloring
  • 2 drops green food coloring
Preparation Directions
CRUST
  • Step 1Prepare recipe for double crust pie, using a 9-inch pie plate. Roll out dough for bottom crust and place in pie plate according to recipe directions. Do not bake. Reserve dough scraps.
  • Step 2Heat oven to 425°F.
FILLING
  • Step 1Combine apples, granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, cloves, allspice and butter in large bowl; toss to coat. Spoon into unbaked pie crust. Moisten pastry edge with water.
  • Step 2Roll out dough for top crust, place onto filled pie and finish edges according to pie crust recipe directions. Cut vent in top crust to resemble branches of apple tree.
DECORATIONS
  • Step 1Roll out reserved dough. Divide in half. Pour 1 tablespoon water into each of 2 cake pans or pie plates.
  • Step 2Add red food coloring to one and green food coloring to the other. Stir until blended. Dip one half of dough in red mixture and other half in green mixture.
  • Step 3Place each on separate sheets of waxed paper. Cut out 1-inch circles with floured cutter. Lift red circles with knife and place on "branches" of tree shape. Add leaf shapes from green dough circles.
  • Step 4Bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F. Cover edge with foil, if necessary, to prevent overbrowning.
  • Step 5Bake an additional 40 minutes or until filling in center is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Cool to room temperature before serving.
