My mother (my kids called her Ghee) was a "from scratch baker". To save time, I use a frozen pie crust. This was one of her favorite pies to prepare for all of us. Living in North Georgia, we are only an hour from the best apple orchards around. We used to go pick our own apples and by night fall, we would have a wonderful aroma calling us back to the kitchen for apple pie and ice cream. My mother passed away over 7 years ago but when I prepare this recipe, I am transported back to her kitchen with her love surrounding us.
With super scrumptious crunchy topping, this wonderful apple pie is a dessert standout. The gala apples are a terrific choice.
Bake pie 10 to 12 minutes or until topping is golden. Cool on wire rack.
