Violet's Apple Pie

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Mary K. W.

This recipe came from my Mom and I have no idea where she got it. I just know this is another recipe that even if someone thinks they don't care for apple pie, they usually love this one. This can be made with or without a crust; I always use the Pillsbury Ready Crust.

That was really good! Probably 8 apples is too many, they did not fit into my baking dish, so I ate one fresh :-) I did it without crust and it tasted great. The only problem is that I made it in a baking dish with removable sides, so the syrup started dripping through the holes and I had to wrap foil around it. Probably it was not the smartest choice of a baking dish for the cake without crust. For serving we liked it with caramel&nut ice cream.
