Yummy Apple Slices

My mother was a southern lady, which means that cooking was in her blood, and she was very good at it. She usually cooked and baked without needing a recipe - her memory was excellent. She could rattle one off over the phone, which she did for me last year. So here is the recipe for her apple slices. My dad always loved them, and still does when my sister finds time to make them for him - and he still sneaks into the kitchen in the middle of the night to steal them. :) They're also a huge hit when I take them to work for a party. I usually have to make two batches.



1 can apple pie filling (20 ounces)
2 boxes ready-made pie crust (4 rolls, 2 in each box)
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar

2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tablespoon margarine
1/4 cup warm coffee

To Prepare Pie:

Mix the apple pie filling, flour, cinnamon, and sugar together in a large bowl.
In a 9 by 12 ungreased pan, put 1 1/2 rolls in bottom (Approximately 1/4 inch to sides of pan)

Spread mixture to cover crust. Take the other 1 1/2 crust and lay over top of mixture. Do not fold the crust together. Trim the top layer even with the other. Put a pat of butter in each corner of pie. Bake at 425F until crust golden brown, approx 45 minutes. Let pie cool completely.

To Prepare Icing:

Stir coffee and margarine until margarine is melted. Slowly add powdered sugar until creamy. Spread over top of pie. (Make sure the pie is completely cooled before applying icing)
