Sliced apples, sugar, spices and an easy crumb topping come together for an amazing fall dessert!
Oh my! This pie tastes so, so much better than it looks. I didn’t take the time to really style the photo, because it smelled so amazing.
I pulled it out of the oven at the same time the rest of our dinner was ready. We ended up eating it as a side dish, because we couldn’t wait for dessert 🙂
I’ve got another pie crust in the freezer and I can’t wait to make this pie again.
Here’s what you’ll need:
I don’t usually use frozen pie shells like this, but I had this one on hand for some reason. And it was really good! I was surprised. It’s Walmart Great Value brand.
