Giving back has been an integral part of McCormick’s 125th anniversary program, Flavor of Together, which draws to a close this holiday season. People around the world shared stories about flavor. For every story shared – from recipes to memories of family gatherings – McCormick donated $1 to United Way Worldwide to help feed those in need, culminating in a $1.25 million donation.

Mini Apple Pies:

  • 1 package (14.1 ounces) refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts)
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and coarsely chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
