Sweet Apple Pie
By pairing apples and candy, I came up with this creation#151;a kind of toffee apple in a pie crust!. A stay-at-home mom of five, I enjoy cooking, canning, baking, crafting and volunteering as a scout leader and religion teacher.

- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Dash salt
- 6 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples (about 6 medium)
- 1 cup English toffee bits or almond brickle chips
