This dessert is a must-have for special fall occasions. Unlike some fruit pies, this crust doesn't become soggy, thanks to the addition of ground walnuts. The nutty flavor pairs perfectly with the apples.

This is an excellent apple pie recipe. Loved the walnut mixture on the bottom. I only used about 4 apples, which was about 6 cups. Had just the right amount of sweetness. I'll be making this one again. Thanks Lainey
