I took the kids apple picking last Friday and came home with a bag full of Macintosh apples.  I usally make apple pie, but this time I tried a new, or rather old, family recipe.  My Nana’s No Crust Apple Pie sounded perfect for my girl’s night out dinner.  Easier than a pie with two crusts rolled out, yet hopefully just as delicious.

Nana’s original recipe for No Crust Apple Pie

My guess is my friends would agree that it was pretty darn delicious.  My Nana, Priscilla Abbott, always had a dessert on hand in the house.  She was a cake baker, but she sure could turn out an amazing pie too.  She had five children so she knew a thing or two about creating a great meal in a timely manner.  This recipe is easy enough for a casual gathering, but respectable enough to follow a holiday dinner.

    This looks delicious and sounds very easy…I can't remember the last time I rolled out my own pie crust. I don't plan on it anytime soon either! lol! This looks so good. I am pinning this too. Thanks for the recipe!

    I missed the part about how to add the butter, flour, sugar & egg. Is it rolled out like a crust or what do you do with it? Sorry if I’m a bit slow, but I can’t figure out how this is done correctly and when I make this, I want to do it correctly. It looks fabulous and I can’t wait to give it a go. Thanks
