    ellie_'s Note:

    This apple pie is so good you'll tell yourself a fairy tale about how all the calories have been magically cooked out so you can have a second piece. Although time consuming this prize-winning recipe (originally printed in a newspaper) is delicious with an adult sauce that is optional.
