About this recipe: The best thing about my apple pie is it's wonderful mouthwatering crust.It is not too crispy like a cracker nor as soft as pizza crust.The crumbly texture of the pie makes it irresistible, regardless of what kind of apple is used.This pie has been a family favorite ever since I first baked it.
