Ingredients

  • 2 prepared pie crusts
  • 2½ cups applesauce
  • 5 large eggs, divided
  • 1½ cups plus 2 Tbsp. sugar, divided
  • ¾ cup honey
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line a pie pan with one pie crust. In a large bowl, stir together applesauce, 4 eggs, 1½ cup sugar, honey, flour, cinnamon, and vanilla. Spoon into crust.
  • Place second crust on a floured surface. Using small cookie cutters or a sharp knife, make several decorative cutouts in the dough. Carefully move dough to the top of the filled pie. Fold edges over the bottom crust and crimp dough.
