Apple Pie With Red Hots

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by NELady

From Recipes and Remembrances, Squaw Mound Homemakers Club, Crawford, Nebraska, 2000. This recipe is for the filling only - use your own favorite recipe for a double crust or use a pre-made frozen one from the grocery store. I use whatever apples are in season or on sale - sometimes crab apples (I have to use about a dozen).

Oh my, this is great! I made the core recipe exactly as written, but changed the presentation & made it as an apple crisp. Served w/frozen vanilla yogurt, my DH & his guests were very impressed. It was more liquid than would be ideal for a pie IMO & I guess the apples used could be the culprit, but I think a 2nd tbsp of flour will correct for that easily. Looks like I am gonna need to start bringing more cinnamon candies back from the U.S. Thx for sharing this new fave recipe w/us. :-)
