      I made this for my family for Thanksgiving and they LOVED it so much I was asked to make it again for Christmas!

      I was less than excited about this recipe. Peeling and slicing the apples took a REALLY long time and the end result for me was just okay. I added a 1/4 salt in the crust and should have in the apple mixture because it was a bit bland. Also, I should have cooked it longer I thiknk. HOWEVER, my kids absolutely LOVED it! My youngest actually wanting me to "teach her how to make it when she grows up"...I think it could have been improved by the simply adding a drizzle of caramel sauce accross the top.
