a nice dessert given to me by my mother that I made tonight.

I also used a premade crust. Because it came in a roll, it was easy to cut in half and make two smaller pies, which was more practical for me. I misread the amount of toffee bits, so this was not sweet enough for me - even though my apple was a tart-sweet variety. The one thing that I did not like was that there was a bit too much crust on the edges - that might have been to my admittedly inept technique with pie crust. This is a great idea for a smaller pie for smaller households.
