Swedish Apple Pie

*Hey guys, reminder: I'm in Africa until mid-January and hopefully my posts will all auto-publish correctly. Any emails or comments will be answered when I get home!*

This Swedish Apple Pie is a favorite among my family. Sort of cult-like favorite. In fact, there are a few family members that would probably have my head if I didn't make it on Thanksgiving. And so, while I don't care for pie, I can still safely assume that this pie is delightfully delicious.

A great thing about this pie is that I don't need to prep any crust for it. Mix up a quick batter, spread over apple slices, and bake. Boom, done! Super simple and absolutely fool-proof. If you need an easy dessert for a party this holiday season, give this pie a go. 

Just don't hate me if you're required to make it for all future gatherings. ;)

    Happy Holidays!
