The apple part of this recipe is a combination of a couple of recipes I have for apple pie filling. When I bake this type of pie it is for my DH who is an All American Boy. I made this yesterday and we topped it off with a big dollop of Tru-whip Natural Whipped Topping. It was really tasty. I got my Tru-Whip at my neighborhood Sunflower market. I slice my apples with my food processors slice blade. This saves a whole lot of time and cuts each piece uniform. I don't peel my apples, the added fiber is always something to consider. But do wash your apples well. I always use organic when I can as I feel they just taste better. The crust I used is a cream cheese crust and the recipe instructions are for one 9 inch crust. I used a non-dairy cream cheese in this pie. As I'm trying to use as little dairy as possible. I didn't double the recipe all at once. I made both crusts separately and though a little extra work it didn't take a lot of time to do and the crusts came out perfect. This is the first cream cheese pie crust I've made and I highly recommend it, I think I'll be making this one a lot more often in the future. BONUS: I had enough pieces of dough left after I trimmed the pie to make 5 turn- overs. I didn't have any apple filling left, so used cherry preserves. I cut out 5 squares, put a tbsp. of the cherry preserve in the middle. I added some slivered almonds on top (cream cheese would be nice in here too). I brushed the edges of the squares with some creamer, then I sealed the squares, put a vent hole in the top and brushed it with the silk creamer and sprinkled the squares with a little cinnamon sugar. I baked these for about 25-30 minutes.
