Many many years ago, I received this recipe from a neighbor, and it quickly became a family favorite, one that my children have gone on to make for their families, and I have also passed it along to many many friends. Now I will share it here for you.
What I love most about this recipe is that if you have friends pop in unannounced, this literally takes 10 minutes to get in the oven. All of the ingredient are simple, things you probably already have on hand. And if you have a gallon of Vanilla Ice Cream in the freezer, even better. Wondering why its called non Apple Pie-Apple Pie, the crust is on the top.
Anyway……..the other day, my baby daughter, she’s 22 I think, texted from the grocery store and asked for a copy of this recipe, in our FamilyText Group. You all have a family text group, right? ha ha That of course prompted everyone to get hungry for this pie. My middle daughter chimed in, and made the pie that night, my oldest daughter texted yum. I wonder if she made the pie. The next day, the hubby came in from grocery shopping, yes he does the shopping, his choice, carrying a bag of apple with the biggest smile on his face, and says to me, “look what I bought!!!” Of course he wanted pie. So I whipped it up, while he ran back to the store to get ice cream. It was delish. I don’t often bake anymore, because its just the two of us, and we end up either eating it all, or throwing some of it away. But here it is, enjoy it, its a winner.

I have found over the years if you can come up with a few go to recipes and always have those ingredients on hand, you can quickly whip something up for company, or even dinner. I actually created a Pantry List years ago, that I used as a guide. I separated everything by categories, and or grocery store aisles, to make it easy for shopping. Additionally I would print a copy out and highlight the items we needed at the store that week, so it doubled as a grocery list I could give to my husband, since he did the shopping. If you would be interested in something like that, I would love to recreate one and pass it along to you.
