This has all the traditional apple pie goodness with the addition of scrumptious, crumbly topping. A fantastic dessert for fall or the holidays, it has a sweet, creamy filling that surrounds the apples. We loved the crunchy walnut crumble sprinkled on top. From the first bite to the last, this apple pie is out of this world! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
