Impossible French Apple Pie

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


This dessert is perfect for a fall celebration or family dinner. I love the contrast between the crunchy pecan streusel, the tender and spicy apples, and the slightly crunchy 'crust'.

WOW Best Tasting Apple Pie I Have Ever Eaten, Member damodara_priya_dd

This recipe is definitely a keeper. It is full of sweet apples, and a crunchy topping, which makes for a wonderfully delicious combination. It is definitely a great addition to any meal or for any occasion, plus it is so easy to prepare.
