Candy Apple Walnut Pie Recipe
The South is known for apple pies, but this one is not your typical apple pie! The filling includes red-hot candies, and instead of a regular double crust, you simply crumble a frozen pastry shell and sprinkle it over the top. You can peel the apples if you wish or leave them unpeeled.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings
