Trinity Pie

Taste tested from the kitchen of

Joe Kent Roberts 

A few weeks ago, after spotting all the various pie fillings at the grocery store, I began craving a home baked Apple Pie. I picked up a can of Mussleman’s Apple Pie filling and a package of pie shells. Later on, when I went to prepare the pie, the directions said to add the ingredients to an 8” pie shell and I had 9” pie shells.

Well shucks, this was rapidly becoming one of those 8 hot dogs per package and 12 hot dog buns dilemma. Four dozen hot dogs are way too many. I’ve given up hot dogs, unless someone else is doing the cooking. To make all the ingredients come out evenly, I couldn’t afford to purchase all the ingredients for 16 Apple pies. I’ll wait a minute while y’all do the math. Plus I had neither the time nor the inclination to bake 16

Apple Pies.

I had too much pie and not enough Apple filling. When life gives us lemons we can make lemonade, or in this particular case we can add something to the apples.

Eureka! The result is the recipe for “Trinity Pie” as listed below.

A pair of 9” Graham Cracker Crust Pie Shells

 A pair of 9” pie shells

2 cans of Mussleman’s Apple Pie Filling

2  9-ounce jars of Strawberry Preserves

29-ounce jars of Raspberry Preserves


Blend and stir all fruits and pour into the Graham Cracker Pie Shells.

We need to “vent” the top pie crusts, so leave these shells in their aluminum holders while carving small 1” to 1 ½” crosses into the shells. Then “flip” the pie shells over on top of the filled pies. Flatten them out and trim off the excess dough. Now if you really want to be creative hand shape the excess pie dough into larger crosses and set them aside with your other crosses.

Sprinkle ground Cinnamon over the pies and crosses.

Bake the pies for 30 to 35 minutes in a pre-heated 350-degree oven.

Oven temperatures will vary so check your Trinity Pies after 25 minutes.


After removing your pies from the oven to cool, place your crosses on a lightly oiled aluminum foiled cookie sheet and pop them in the oven for 3 minutes or so.


After your pies have cooled a bit, then you can either top with your favorite Ice Cream, or cover the pies with whipping cream.


You may have noticed that this recipe is for two pies. My one pie lasted less than 10 minutes at the Church Social, and I only got one little piece of Heaven before it vanished. I prefer my Trinity Pie topped with whipping cream and the luscious creamy taste of Heaven on Earth.



The white whipping cream represents the purity of our Gracious God.

Red for the shed blood of Jesus the Messiah

The fruit is the fruit of The Spirit
