I don't remember where I got this recipe. But I get requests for it all the time. You ought to see their faces when I say I bake it in a paper sack. It is one of my DH and DD favorite apple dessert.

This was one of the easiest apple pies that I have ever made and it was delicious. I like the paper bag effect, works very well and the crust doesn't burn. Thanks
