This was an easy pie to throw together and was pretty tasty. It was a little sweet for my taste, so, next time I will probably cut the sugar back a little bit. Thanks for a great recipe, Caryn!

We really liked this pie. It was like eating apple crisp pie. I used a 9- inch deep dish pie shell, and three large Granny Smith apples were enough to fill the it. This is a great recipe to use if you have little kids who like to help in the kitchen. My sons helped roll the apple slices in the crumb mixture.
