I used my favorite butter crust to create this pie. It has a yummy cinnamon spice flavor. The combination of spice with the Golden Delicious apples is so outstanding! I also topped it off with a cinnamon walnut crumble that adds an extra flavor level. It kind of reminds me of an apple crisp served in a pie shell. You will love this with a side of vanilla ice cream. It’s a hit in my home. I hope you all enjoy my recipe!
