"This is an old favorite at our house. I make this using fresh or frozen apples. I have made it at Christmas,drizzled with the glaze for my dainty tray. Delicious for snacks or as a dessert served with ice cream. Serve warm or cooled. Can also be frozen."

  1. How long do you cook 2 slices of uncooked apple pie


  1. I thought I made a mean apple pie but this tops mine by a mile. The addition of the clove and ginger knocks this pie out of the park! Thank you Dotty. I've already entered it into my favorites file. I used my frozen apples from last year's crop and the only change was adding some lemon juice to tart the apples a bit. Everyone, you have to try this recipe. You won't be disappointed!
  2. Made for a wonderful weekend dessert! Used apples from our backyard and everyone enjoyed the end result. Other then using a touch less of the spices I made as posted with excellent results. The added glaze drizzled over made for presentation. This one is definitely a repeatable. Thank you for another of your terrific recipes that my family loves!
