    HokiesMom's Note:

    Just a lovely comforting dessert that I've enjoyed making over the years and a nice change from the standard baked apple pie. It is great using the Girl Scout Shortbread cookies too. You can also substitute the shortbread cookies with oatmeal cookies.

      OMG!!! A must try recipe!! Just loved the shortbread cookies in this recipe, I used Lorna Doones cookies, which I had one sleeve of cookies leftover from a cheescake recipe I made!! I made 1/2 of the recipe, using 1 1/2 apples for the 2 cups and used the remainder of the box of cookies. Just loved the combination of cookies, sugar, cinnamon and the almonds toasted on top!!! Served with a scoop of ice cream and was soooo happy!!! I would have this over apple pie any day!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe Hokies!!!
