As everyone said, this pie is very light and delicious! The ingredient list is pretty basic and definitely full of ingredients you'd probably already find in your house. The heavy cream gets soaked up by the apples and flour, so it doesn't really make the pie 'creamy' as one might originally think. I'd recommend serving warm with caramel sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

This was so sweet, light and satisfying! The perfect way to end a big meal.

This pie is light and simple -- exactly what you're expecting.
