Grandmother Velma's Blush Apple Pie

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by RobinTX

My grandmother was famous for her Blush Apple Pies. I always asked her to make at least one when we went to visit. I recommend Mean Chef's Classic Pie Crust (#26205), but the refrigerated rolled crusts work too, if you are in a hurry. This is an easy and quick pie, but the flavor added by the pineapple and red hots is wonderful.

This was a very easy pie to prepare. It had a nice flavor and such a pretty red color. Thanks RobinTx. Bullwinkle.
