Blushing Apple Cream Pie

The area where we live used to be an apple orchard, so we and our neighbors have apple trees in our yards. I received this recipe from my sister more than 25 years ago, and it's still popular in our family.

    One of my favorites. I always double the filling and put in my deep dish pie. It's great!

    I thought this would have more of the taste of the red hots. It didn't, but it was very tasty and a little different.
