    This is a very very delicious pie, but is not a Schnitz pie. Schnitz are dried apple slices, not fresh apples slices. I made it for Thanksgiving dinner and the pie was highly received by DH's family who are all Pennsylvania Dutch.

    A Keeper! I added a good pinch of salt to the crumb mixture: my only change. I used purchased sour cream and a combination of Granny Smith and Gala apples. And I will make this again! We really enjoyed it.
