"I would probably add more apples and double the topping. It IS very unique. My son doesn't even like apple pie but he liked this!"

"This is my husband's new favorite apple pie. I cut the sugar in the filling by half because I was using up a sweet-crisp apple. I usually spice my apple pies, but I didn't miss it at all. It is wonderful creamy goodness."

"Thank you for sharing this and all the tips about the ice cream and tweaking the recipe. My business, God Driven Designs, has an upcoming event in December and we wanted to test a recipe beforehand. We're always looking for inspirational ways to create new food ideas to share with our clients. I didn't do a crumb topping with this, but might add a caramel glaze and I actually cut the sugar in half and used Pillsbury redi bake crust that we cut into circles to make mini pies. They turned out great with a hint of cinnamon on top. We might just give these out as gifts this year!"
