    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    Apple pie that you can eat with your hands! This is an old family favorite--great to take on picnics or potlucks. Originally from a 1992 cookie booklet.

      Made a double batch in a 9 x 13 inch pan for my daughter and her family. They ate it all and gave it a thumbs up!

      I just made these and they're yummy. I think the recipe works well on its own, but think I may try more filling and crust in the future. Very easy way to make a quick apple 'pie'.

      I made these for a potluck at work and they went over nicely. I did make the short cut of using premade apple pie filling due to the lack of prep time. Edited to add: I do think that after seeing how they cut up and looked on the tray that doubling the ingredients for the crust so you could make a lattice across the top would make these even prettier. I also used the whole can (21 oz.) of apple pie filling and this seemed to work nicely. Thank you for posting this yummy sweet treat. Shirl
