A flavoursome "different" apple pie! I used some of our apples and walnuts from the garden.
I'm always looking for different apple pies. Food.com is the best way to find unconvential recipes. Your recipe war really good and after so many apple pies, still not special. Everybody had more than one piece!
Thanks for posting this recipe.
Made this for a small neighborhood gathering, & everyone enjoyed it! I always enjoy making pies, & found this a wonderfully delicious change of pace from the usual apple pie! Thanks so much for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
Delicious! For a crust novice I was frustrated but I powered through and got out the flour :) and it turned out really good! I used regular brown sugar and walnuts (personal preference) and was very happy. This may find a space on my Thanksgiving table this year!
