Recipe by katia

This is my favorite apple pie. I think that its very easy to make and also is not so full of fat and calories! *update* When the pie is ready I dust it over with some powdered sugar. Much better looking!

This was a very tasty pie Katia. My dh & I enjoyed it very much. The pie was light and fluffy, the topping was crispy, tender and flavourful while the filling was sweet and subtley spicy. Thanks for sharing.
