This is one of my family's favorite recipe for holiday pie. Family and friends always enjoy it warm with vanilla bean ice cream with caramel sauce drizzled on top.
We especially like the nutty crumb topping....so for something different..give this pie a try..
This is my Aunt Martha's pie crust recipe...
