WV Apple Butter Pie

You'll never have pumpkin pie again after you try this! 

1 - 9-inch pie crust (or try vanilla crust recipe below)
1 - 19-oz jar West Virginia Fruit & Berry Apple Butter
1 - 12-oz can evaporated milk
3 - large cage free eggs
1/2 tsp - vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350F. Combine all ingredients (not crust) in a food processor and whiz until very smooth. Pour into prepared pie crust.
Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until center is mostly set (jiggles slightly when nudged) and a sharp knife inserted near the center comes out mostly clean. Cool to room temperature before slicing and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or overnight, before serving.
Serves 8-10
