Macaroon Apple Pie

I found this recipe in a rural newspaper years ago. It's become one of my favorite recipes. I like to serve it warm with vanilla ice cream.

    One of the best apple pie recipes I’ve ever used - and that’s saying a whole lot! I’ll be using this again and again.

    Sophie, the macaroon part is the coconut topping as you make macaroons with coconut.

    The recipe doesn't show macaroons. Where do you put that in.?
