A new twist on an old favorite

The secret ingredient is the light, mellow flavor of Grandma’s Molasses.

Bet you’ve never had an apple pie made with molasses. Well, we’ve taken an all time favorite and added a bit of country cookin’ — blending apples, spices and Grandma’s Molasses… the molasses flavor you probably remember as a kid. We use an oven-ready Pet-Ritz Pie Crust Shell that bakes up tender and flaky as your finest homemade… letting you spend time creating the tasty filling. Then we add a spicy streusel topping for added crunchiness.
