I got this recipe from another Zaarite who just didn't have the time to post it (and that time is NOW!). With Sherry's kind permission, here is a recipe that she says "it's fun to watch them eat it and THEN tell them it's not apples!".

This is a great recipe. You can omit the pie crust and make apple crisp instead. I'll make again.
