- 1 Cup apple pie filling
- 2 Tablespoons coars sugar

- Thaw pie crust per directions on the back of the box before starting process. Lay out one pie crust and evely coat with ⅓ of the sugar mixture. Layer the apple pie filling on top, evenly smoothing it out. Layer on the second pie crust, top with another ⅓ of the coarse sugar mixture.
- Taking a pizza cutter, cut off sides until it is a squre shape. Cut ½ inch thin strips cross wise. Cut in half per photos in post.
- Taking one piece at a time, gently twist and place on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Lightly brush each piece with egg wash. Sprinkle the remaining sugar mixture on each piece. Bake for 15 minutes, until slightly golden brown. Place sheet tray on wired rack to cool
- While twists are cooling, mix together the powdered sugar, cream/milk and vanilla paste to form the glaze. Glaze twists by using a piping bag, or just drizzling it over each piece with a fork or spoon. Serve warm, enjoy!
