Dried Apple Pie
1 1/2 cup boiling water
1 1/2 cup dried apples
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small cubes
Pre-made, unbaked two-crust pie dough (available in your local grocer near pre-made cookie dough)
In a large bowl, pour boiling water over the dried apples and let soak for a few hours or until they rehydrate. Once rehydrated, add the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir until well combined.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9-inch pie pan with the pie dough. Pour the apple mixture into the pie pan and add the small cubes of butter so that they are well distributed across the apple mixture. Cover the pie with the remaining pie dough. Using a fork or your fingers, press down the pie dough sides so that it forms a ripped crust.
Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool, and serve.
