The pretty cutouts topping the filling are baked on a cookie sheet while the oven is at 425°F. It will take just a few minutes for them to bake golden brown. Let cool. Once pie has baked and cooled, top with baked pastry.
Top this pie with "spiced cream" without last-minute fuss! For 8 nice dollops, simply beat 1/2 cup whipping cream with 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon until stiff. To make ahead, drop the whipped cream in dollops onto waxed paper and freeze uncovered at least 2 hours, then cover tightly and freeze no longer than 2 months. Add to pie slices and let stand 5 minutes.
Jump-start your pie baking by using Betty Crocker® pie crust mix. Just add water and stir; the dough is ready in 5 minutes.
