I was looking for an apple pie that could be used with a gluten free pie crust. This one looked interesting and we tried it. My husband and I both loved it. I also like the fact that the recipe is gluten free so I didn't have to change anything in it. Thanks.

I'm usually not a fan of apple pies. But this recipe was absolutely outstanding- melt in the mouth, make your mouth water kind of delicious. Its best eaten hot though. Thanks for this great recipe.
