This recipe is so easy to make. Be sure to flour your countertop well before rolling out the dough. I used Jonathen Apples, next time I will use more tart ones like Granny Smith, for more flavor. I served this with Vanilla Icecream, topped with a drizzle of Caramel Sauce.

Sooo easy (I cheated & used canned pie filling & prepared crust) and absolutely delicious. I omitted the toppings and just put the filling in the crust then folded the sides over the apples. Prep time was about 5 minutes. I liked it better than the pecan pie I made to serve as an alternative.
