This recipe was a huge hit, but cut the salt in half. Thank you for the recipe!

These were pretty good, but I put chocolate chips on the bottom crust on half of this and it was way better. The top crust didn't stick together well enough to make a lattice top. It was half lattice, half crumb topping. Very tasty. Made for ZWT9.
