This is a unique and special apple pie. I made it for Christmas dessert and it received rave reviews from everyone at the table. Granny Smith's worked beautifully and I loved the lime in it, the golden raisins didn't go amiss either. Even my super picky DH had kudos for this great dessert. Thanks Kato for a recipe that had everyone smiling and happy.
This was my first time making an apple pie. Very easy & tasty! I did add 1/4 tsp of allspice to the mix. Made for 123 Hits Tag
This is an outstanding pie! I used granny smith apples and the topping for this is so delicious. This will be one that I make often and definitely for the holidays.
