    MarieRynr's Note:

    This is a most lucious and delicious pie. A mennonite recipe that I got from the book "Food that Really Schmecks" I have been making this pie for years and I have to tell you, I have gotten up more than once in the middle of the night to eat that last piece before anyone else can get it!

      This is a very very delicious pie, but is not a Schnitz pie. Schnitz are dried apple slices, not fresh apples slices. I made it for Thanksgiving dinner and the pie was highly received by DH's family who are all Pennsylvania Dutch.

      A Keeper! I added a good pinch of salt to the crumb mixture: my only change. I used purchased sour cream and a combination of Granny Smith and Gala apples. And I will make this again! We really enjoyed it.
