I found an apple pie recipe and doctored it up a little bit and it came out to be this particular recipe. I have received rave reviews; I will not name names, but the comments have been: “This is the best apple pie I’ve ever had!”, “our family had a fight over the last piece of this pie”, I don’t like apple pie, but I love yours!” TRY THIS RECIPE! You won’t regret it!
