Icebox Apple Pie

This is great apple country and a lot of people drive many miles to pick their own. This recipe is very handy because I can make it in about 15 minutes.

    This pie is delicious! I've made it several times and have tried orange gelatin as well as peach. The orange imparts a stronger flavor, but seems to compliment the apples a little better than the peach. I back off on the nutmeg, but that's a personal choice. Tart varieties of apples work best, but I did make it once with a combination of Fuji and Honey Crisp (I know!), It was quite sweet. One last note, I use sugar-free gelatin to reduce the calories. Just excellent!
