My Grandmother used to bake the most delicious pies. She made everything from scratch and it always came out perfect. I didn’t inherit that from her. Baking something from scratch is not a high priority for me, and my lack of interest shows in the final product. So…to save everyone the pain of having to eat a rock hard pie crust, I purchase pre-made pie crusts from Tenderflake. They always turn out great, and I can always put it in a glass pie dish and pretend I made it (not that I would ever do that…). With Easter coming soon, I am working on some ideas for Easter desserts and decided to try out this Apple Crisp Pie recipe.
