Fairly easy to make, unique pie but wonderful flavor & rave reviews from everyone. Hint: dont let the pie cool too much before you flip it as becomes impossible to remove from the pan. If this happens, put it back in the oven just long enough to soften the sugars back up and flip it quickly!

I tried this recipe because we were tired of plain old apple pie. It is so good. This has become a family tradition for the holidays! I don't know who came up with this recipe, but THANK YOU!



top (or bottom), the flipped side, didn't cook for me. Just a doughy mess. Not too flavorful.
