Top Review by JOY1998

Great easy recipe. I added some chopped walnuts and graham cracker crumbs with melted butter to the apples. It was such a wonderful pastry with minimal effort. I don't feel that my changes were necessary, but I just made it to my liking. Thank you for posting this tasty recipe.
